Geek deals: Alienware 13 1080p gaming laptop for $950 – Geek

Alienware 13 small On the inside, the Alienware 13 R1 sports a fifth generation dual-core 2.4GHz Intel Core i7-5500U CPU, a discrete Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M graphics card (with 2GB of memory), 16GB of DDR3L RAM (1600MHz), a 1TB 5400RPM hard drive, Bluetooth 4.1, and 802.11b/g/n/ac WiFi support. And the 13.3-inch display? It benefits from in-plane switching, an anti-glare coating, and a full HD resolution of 1920×1080. And since it has both a mini DisplayPort and an HDMI 1.4 port, connecting to your favorite PC monitor or HDTV is as easy as pie.

Windows 8.1 Home (64-bit) comes installed by default, but you’ll be able to upgrade to Windows 10 Home (64-bit) for free until July 29th.

While this configuration lists for about $1600, Dell is selling it directly for just $1049.99. But when you apply the coupon code “100OFF999” during the checkout process you’ll end up saving an additional hundred bucks. And since shipping is free, you’re only going to pay $949.99 (plus any applicable taxes) for this awesome portable gaming rig.
