Looking for a nice gaming laptop but don’t want to shell out too much money? Some may say that you are not going to find anything decent under $1000 or even $700, but all you need is a good nose for sniffing out the deals that always crop up somewhere at some point. So here’s something that will make for a great start to your weekend.
Logic Buy ((Get it here!)) is having a sale on the Dell Alienware m11x gaming laptop. You have two options – one that runs on Dual Core and one that runs on Core i3.
The better deal seems to be the first one, which is going for a mere $599! This 11.6-inch laptop is rather compact, especially for a gaming device. While it is definitely not a new model, it has gotten pretty good reviews. One particularly good rating is from Laptop Mag, which gave the device a 4.5 out of 5. Little it may be, it does the job. And the discount is pretty big, especially since it retailed at over $1,000 when it first came out. This laptop comes with 4GB of DDR3 RAM, 1GB NVIDIA GeForce GT graphics card, 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, a 320GB 7200rpm hard drive, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS, and a 1.3-Megapixel Webcam.. That should be more than enough to satisfy your gaming needs, especially when you’re on the go. Also, the laptop weighs in at only 4.4 pounds – relatively light for a gaming laptop.
The second option is a little pricier at $699. And what do you get for the extra $100? The basic things mentioned above, with the added bonus of a 1GB GeForce GT 335M discrete GPU & WLED 720p LCD. Oh, and the more powerful processor of course.
Here’s even better news – if you purchase any of the two laptops, you can avail of free shipping! There are some rules though. First, you have to use the coupon codes found in the site. Otherwise, you won’t be qualified for the $200 discount. Second, you have to make your purchase NOW (or ASAP) as the sale only lasts till the 20th – or when the stocks run out.
