When you think of an Alienware PC, images of an overpriced beast of a PC desktop probably fills your head. It’s the complete opposite with the Alienware Steam Machine (and its predecessor the Alienware Alpha). Compact and light, it’s smaller than PS4 and now priced about what a PS4/Xbox used to cost on release: only $375 after coupon. This is a huge drop for the Core i5 mid-model Alienware Steam Machine at Dell. Originally, this gaming rig was listed at $650 earlier this year.
The deal on Alienware’s Steam Machine is valid as of writing through August 4th. Make sure during checkout you sign up for Dell’s Advantage Rewards program for extra perks. For the price of giving them your email address, you’ll get free two business day shipping (otherwise a $15 purchase) plus 5% back in reward points value.
If you need games to go along with your Alienware Steam Machine, there’s deals aplenty this week. The GMG 2016 PC Gaming Summer Sale has entered phase 6 of its sale. Starting earlier today at GMG we’re seeing a ton of deals on Resident Evil titles, including a new low on the Resident Evil Deluxe Origins Bundle. Another sale going on this week is the WinGameStore SEGA Summer Sale with $4.74 Valkyria Chronicles.
Note that the Steam Machine comes with SteamOS (in lieu of Windows), so your gaming pick will depend on titles that are compatible with the SteamOS/Linux platform (you can of course pick up an OEM copy of Windows 8 and just plop it into the system). Shipping is free and it of course comes with Valve’s Steam Controller.
