Amazon’s Fire Tablet is the one Black Friday purchase you NEED to make!
Of course, with all this hardware you’ll be paying a premium, which is why we recommend the mid-range model, on sale from $2,530 down to $2,050. It includes a 9th Gen Intel Core i7-9750H CPU, 16GB of dual-channel RAM, a 1TB M.2 PCIe SSD, and a NVIDIA RTX 2070 GPU with 8GB of VRAM. Instead of 4K, the display is set at 1080p with a 240Hz refresh rate, 7ms response time, and perfect sRGB color.
Alienware m17 R2 — Save up to 30%
Like the m15, the Alienware m17 R2 has a ton of configurations to choose from. If you’re looking to save the most money, we recommend checking out the model with 9th Gen Intel Core i7-9750H CPU, 16GB of dual-channel DDR4 RAM, 512GB M.2 PCIe SSD, and NVIDIA RTX 2060 GPU with 6GB of VRAM.
The 17.3-inch display offers more screen real estate, and it comes with an FHD resolution, 144Hz refresh rate, and 9ms response time. This is enough performance for a smooth 1080p or 1440p gaming experience with modern AAA games.
Amazon also has an awesome Black Friday deal on an Alienware M17 with 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8750H CPU, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, a 512GB SSD, and a NVIDIA RTX 2070 Max-Q GPU.

This isn’t the latest version of the M-series in terms of design, but performance is still stellar and the 17.3-inch FHD display makes it easy to forego an external monitor.
Lenovo Legion Y740 15 — $1,420 (Save $560)
