Lazada’s sixth anniversary sale is seeing massive discounts on both Dell Alienware and Illegear gaming laptops, with discounts going up to 24%. To be fair, these laptops still sport the older Intel seventh generation processors; since the new Coffee Lake-H equipped models are yet to arrive in the country.
First up are the pair of Alienware 15 and 17 gaming laptops. These two share nearly identical specifications, with the only difference lying in the displays. The Alienware 15 is equipped with a 15.6-inch FHD display with a 120Hz refresh rate. This model is also advertised with NVIDIA G-SYNC technology. On the other hand, the Alienware 17 fits a 17.3-inch FHD display; also featuring the Tobii IR eye-tracking system.
On the inside of both gaming laptops are an Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor, 16GB dual channel RAM, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD, and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card. Interestingly, neither of these configurations appear on the official Dell Malaysia website.
The Alienware 15 is going for RM7,999, which represents a markdown of 11%. On the other hand, the Alienware 17 is on offer for RM8,299; a discount of 16%.
Illegear serves up some somewhat more tempting offers. Starting with the Illegear S5X, which was the first Max-Q equipped laptop to enter Malaysia last year. It’s still a relative workhorse, despite being on the market for nearly a year now. More importantly, it’s currently on Lazada for RM5,715.
This price nets buyers a 15.6-inch laptop with a Full HD display, an Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor, 8GB RAM, 240GB SSD, 1TB SSHD, and a GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q. All of which is quite a lot of power packed into such a low price. Then again, this is likely Illegear clearing the stock in anticipation of the arrival of the newer Coffee Lake fitted S5 laptops.
Finally, there is the Illegear Raven. Which offers a profile similar to that of the S5X. It’s also a 15.6-inch gaming laptop with an Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor and 8GB RAM. What is different is that the Raven is fitted with a 120GB SSD + 1TB HDD storage combo, and a less powerful GTX 1060 graphics card.
Despite this, the price is seeing a 24% mark down; being sold for RM4,260. Again, this look like stock clearance for Illegear. But then again, it’s not nearly a bad deal considering the price.
