Launched in time for Christmas, Alienware’s Alpha has been met with mixed reviews thus far, though most complaint are more directed at the UI/software rather than the hardware. As it stands, the machine is a fairly affordable offer for those interested into moving into PC gaming, especially with a small form factor vs. a giant lumbering desktop machine.
In what appear as an attempt to move some units for the holidays, Dell has officially discounted the Alienware Alpha machines by $50 across the board through a special, limited-time coupon.
Adding carrot to the cake? Dell is also tossing in a $50 Promotional eGift Card in the mix, good for any items on Dell.com (perhaps a new game to go along with your new gaming hardware?)
Here’s a breakdown of what’s available:
At checkout, use coupon: C2?ZFFKR4TDC0Z
- Alienware Alpha Core i3-4130T, GeForce GTX 860M, 4GB RAM — $499 (list $549)
- Alienware Alpha Core i3-4130T, GeForce GTX 860M, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD — $649 (list $699)
- Alienware Alpha Core i5-4590T, GeForce GTX 860M, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD — $749 (list $799)
- Alienware Alpha Core i7-4765T, GeForce GTX 860M, 8GB RAM, 2TB HDD — $849 (list $899)
Note: The coupon expires on December 15th, 2014. After that date there is actually another coupon available for $50 off: T$VTLCJNZ37MC8 – though this works on configurations $599 and up only. There’s no known expiration date for the $50 gift card promotion. Given that its listed as part of the spec list, we suspect this will be a limited time holiday promotion until Christmas.
