There aren't many manufacturers like Dell in this world. Its more sober lines are home to some reliable office mainstays, while its Alienware brand is worth keeping an eye on for gamers as we head into the ever-expanding deals season. With quality laptops, desktops, and monitors all up for grabs, there's generally something for everyone, as long as you know what you're looking for. That's where we come in.

It's kicking off the sales with some early Black Friday deals and some sneak peeks, which can be short-lived deals of what's to come later. Essentially if you've been promising yourself a new desktop, laptop, or monitor, then the deal season is already very much underway. We've seen some tasty monitor deals already, including this impressive Alienware AW2521H (opens in new tab) which is still available.

  • Black Friday 2021 when is it and why you need to shop for PC gaming deals early this year.

After scouting around the latest updates, a few more Alienware monitor deals have grabbed our attention, including a 27-inch QHD model that has a tasty 240Hz refresh rate, as well as a 38-inch curved monster that is currently enjoying $650 off its normal asking price. We really liked the Alienware A3821DW (opens in new tab) when we looked at it early in the year as well. You can find details on both screens below.

This Alienware monitor hits that 1440p sweet spot at an impressive 240Hz refresh rate and a 1ms (GtG) response time. This thing is fast. And at 450 cd/m2 it's pretty bright too. This would normally set you back $1,110, but right now you can pick it up for a penny under $800. That's a quality saving on a quality screen.

From the 'go big or go home' school of monitor design, this curved monster is for anyone that wants to hit that truly immersive gaming experience. At 3840x1600 it has the same horizontal resolution as a 4K panel, but it isn't quite as tall—it'll still punish your graphics card though. The 144Hz refresh rate, 1ms response times, and VESA DisplayHDR 600 round out an impressive overall package.

Alan has been writing about PC tech since before 3D graphics cards existed, and still vividly recalls having to fight with MS-DOS just to get games to load. He fondly remembers the killer combo of a Matrox Millenium and 3dfx Voodoo, and seeing Lara Croft in 3D for the first time. He's very glad hardware has advanced as much as it has though, and is particularly happy when putting the latest M.2 NVMe SSDs, AMD processors, and laptops through their paces. He has a long-lasting Magic: The Gathering obsession but limits this to MTG Arena these days.
