Dell is offering its Alienware Aurora R12 Gaming Desktop with 2.6GHz i5/16GB/1TB/RTX 3060 for $999.99 shipped. Down over $500 from its normal going rate, today’s deal marks one of the best prices that we’ve tracked on an RTX 3060-powered desktop. Really, the only steeper discount that we’ve found was last month where we saw one from HP fall to $850, though it only had 256GB of storage with a previous-generation Ryzen 5 CPU. This desktop is designed to handle most 1080p gaming at up to 144FPS, depending on the title. With the 12GB RTX 3060 you could even push 1440p 60Hz or better, depending on if the game supports DLSS or not. You’ll also get a sleek case here that’s designed by Alienware to offer a nice balance between size and airflow. Rated 4.2/5 stars. Head below for more.
Given that you’re saving over $500 from its normal going rate with today’s lead deal, why not put some of that cash to use? Well, since the Aurora R12 only has a standard hard drive, adding an extra 1TB SSD gives you plenty of room for additional games, updates, media, and more. Crucial’s 2.5-inch Internal Solid-State Drive is available on Amazon for $110, which uses just a fraction of your savings.
Prefer to have an on-the-go machine? Apple’s previous-generation iPad Pro is a great choice. Right now it’s up to $150 off, with prices starting at $699. These are the 2020 models and feature LiDAR camera sensors, edge-to-edge Liquid Retina display, USB-C, and much more.
