Found this one earlier after I keep missing out on the outlet deals. Looks half decent.
Screen should be nice with 120hz, but no SSD here unfortunately. Also i5 rather than i7 but I think a good price over the usual Alienware costs. Especially for a new machine rather than a refurb.

Amazon seem to be trying to sell this model, likely in vain, at £1449.97?

Only issue is they're all Dells - mostly all let down by poor screens, and these alienwares are fugly
Pretty ugly build. Can't believe they paired a quad core i5 and 1060 with only 1 stick of 8gb ram and no SSD. At least they put in a faster hardrive.

From what I understand, you're lucky to have got a fully working one. I've bought two laptops from there and both have had persistent issues. I've heard reports from others with the same experience, too, so it's not just me. To be fair, they did eventually swap them for new units, but it took a few rounds of sending them back and forth.
as mentioned above, for this price would expect at least a boot drive ssd and possibly 16gb ram.

I bought one from dell outlet website and I will buy another one again if found for less than haft price and I will sell on eBay.

I sent over 40 emails with a lot of pictures and videos to show the issues.

They only change parts for “refurbished” parts that isn’t fixed. ( the technician told me)

He also told to keep my main board because probably they will send another one with bigger issue.

At the start I had a very slight issue (USB PORTS) and they changed the main board 3 times. All of them came with big issue (graphic card).

Avoid Alienware. Not only outlet. If they have a lot of pc for sale on outlet website is because the new ones came with issues too and customers send it back.
