Geek deals 200 gift card with Alienware BioShock bundle more

first_imgAbout the only time our deal hunting team finds special offers on an Alienware PC is when it’s on closeout, but they are sweetening the pot on their new Haswell-based Alienware 17 with a hefty $200 e-gift card. The 17 is part of the trio of new Haswell models announced a couple months ago that finally brought a fresh new design to the table.Like it’s larger cousin the 18 and it’s only slightly-smaller brother the 14, the Alienware 17 sports a fresh new chassis with angular, flat surfaces.They make no apologies over size either; the Alienware 17 is nearly two inches thick and starts at over nine pounds. But when you consider that it packs things like four USB 3.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, both HDMI input and outputs, Mini DisplayPort, a 7-in-1 media card reader, surround sound output, and support for dual disk drives, all that heft suddenly makes sense. Don’t forget about the slot-loading optical drive and standard multi-zone customizable LED lighting.We found a $50 coupon that works on all models, but right now you can get a $200 gift card on several of the higher-end versions. An entry-level model with HD+ screen, 8GB RAM, and Nvidia GTX 765M 2GB graphics card starts at just $1,449 after coupon. The $200 gift card offer starts on the exceptionally well-configured model with a faster Core i7-4800MQ processor, 1080p IPS display, 16GB of RAM, 750GB HDD plus 64GB mSATA SSD, Nvidia GTX 770M 3GB graphics, and slot-loading Blu-ray drive. All that tech will run you $2,399, but the $200 gift card helps offset some of that damage.The even higher-end configurations with a $200 gift card will make you weep, both at the awesome specs and the loan-worthy price tags. Suffice it to say that if you want an overclockable processor, RAID 0 SSDs plus a 1TB storage drive, and 4GB Nvidia graphics card, you can’t afford it if you have to ask how much.Alienware 17 Haswell Core i7 Gaming Laptop starting at $1,449 plus free shipping (reg. $1,499)Our other top deals:BioShock Infinite, BioShock 1, and BioShock 2 (PC download) for $19.99 (reg. $99.97 | via Amazon)Seagate Expansion 3TB USB 3.0 external hard drive for $99.99 plus free shipping (reg. $149.99 | via Newegg)Dell E2014T 20-inch multi-touch monitor with three-year warranty for $199.99 plus free shipping (reg. $249.99 | use coupon QT4HLGX4TMPLT7)last_img
