Where's the best place to buy an Alienware m15?
Buy directly from Dell
Dell has been in the hardware business for decades and the company's line-up of Windows-powered PCs are better than ever before. It makes sense to purchase the Alienware m15 directly from Dell for numerous reasons, but the main factors are configurations, promotions, warranty, and post-purchase support.
Being able to configure your m15 to house exactly what you need is convenient. You may be able to find listings elsewhere, like on Amazon or Best Buy, but it may not house the internals you desire. Dell lets you choose what will come pre-installed inside the Alienware m15. Even the base model has everything you need to game without issue, sporting an NVIDIA GTX 1060 GPU, Intel Core i7-8750H CPU, and 8GB of RAM.
You're always guaranteed the latest components too. Should Dell refresh the Alienware m15 with an updated CPU, it'll be available directly from Dell from day one. Other retailers may take some time to update listings and get stock in. Also, Amazon doesn't currently have any Alienware m15 models listed for sale. You're more likely to find deals straight from Dell.
No matter where you shop, it's always recommended to shop around to see where you can find the best prices, though do bear in mind that going through Dell will let you choose an extended warranty before ordering, just in case something goes wrong and the complimentary warranty period has expired.
Thin, lightweight and ready for PC gaming
Dell's new Alienware m15 comes equipped with everything a PC gamer needs to enjoy their collection when not at a desktop. Even the base model comes rocking an NVIDIA GTX 1060 GPU and an Intel Core i7-8750H CPU with 8GB of RAM.
