If you've got your finger even halfway on the pulse, you've probably noticed that Dell and Alienware gear gets discounted a lot in Australia.

Picked up by the folk at OzBargain, these deals go live at 10am today (Tuesday, September 21) and are definitely worth checking if you're in the market for a monitor. Even if you're not in the market, these are tempting.

On the other end of the budget spectrum, the Alienware 38 Curved monitor (AW3821DW) is down from AU$2,499 to AU$1,499—a full grand off. That's a 21:9 affair, so it's a wide one, with a 3840x1600 resolution and 144Hz refresh rate. It's a pretty hefty piece of kit, and that's a pretty hefty discount.
Here's the list:
