Dell's daily deals rotate pretty frequently, but sometimes a few of them stick around because Dell just wants to clear some space. This is not a deal that's going to stick around. For just a little bit longer you can grab the Alienware m17 R4 gaming laptop for a low price of just $1,469.99 through Dell's online store. There is a warning that this is a Last Chance deal, which means the price is going to jump here pretty soon. Given the graphics card and the processing power in this machine, the price is fantastic. While it's certainly not "cheap," it's actually at the low end of high-tier laptop pricing, so you're not going to be getting a federal loan to pay for it or anything.
This configuration includes a 10th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, a 1TB M.2 solid state drive, 16GB RAM, and a Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card. Other features include a Thunderbolt 3 port, a 360Hz 17.3-inch display, Wi-Fi 6, and more. It's loaded and ready to go.
You know, one place that Alienware constantly excels is in displays. Whatever else the laptop has, it's going to look great when you're watching movies or playing video games or doing whatever else you want to do. The 17.3-inch display has a pixel resolution of 1920 x 1080. However, the real feature is the refresh rate that can go up to 360Hz. That's an insane number even for a larger desktop monitor. With Nvidia G-Sync technology that helps reduce screen tearing and boost performance while playing on a Nvidia graphics card, your video games are going to be smooth.
Other internal components include a 10th-generation Intel Core i7-10870H computer processor with up to 5.0GHz speeds with Max Turbo Frequency, 16GB DDR4 RAM, and a 1TB M.2 solid state drive that gives you plenty of space for your favorite games while also loading them at great speeds.
You also get Killer Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 for wireless connectivity, a Thunderbolt 3 USB-C port, and muiltiple USB-A ports for connecting your favorite peripherals.

I have this laptop and it's a wonderful beast of a machine. A word of warning though: The RAM is soldered to the motherboard and not upgradeable. But other than that it's a really good gaming laptop and works just fine using Oculus Air Link.
