Default $2400 for $1200

So I'm gonna be buying a laptop soon, and I saw this deal. Its 50% off so it looks really tempting to me, even though I know Alienware is overpriced. Is this laptop a good deal for 50% off?

Dell Alienware M17x m17x-3033DSB 17-inch Notebook - Buy from Microsoft Store

Where do you see it's 50% off? I only see it as $2400

If you're talking about the coupon code CLR-MSAFL-50%-PC, it has already expired. That's the only thing I can see that gives 50% off.

For 50% off it would definetly be a good deal. Not sure where you got that 50% off, as I can't find anything that says so.

I think that would be the only way to do it. It's not advertised.

Yeah I was talking about the coupon code CLR-MSAFL-50%-PC . Sorry, I should have posted that beforehand.

How good of a deal would the laptop have been if it was still available at that price?

Well, like I said earlier, I am looking to buy a laptop soon. I will use it in college, and would like it to be pretty good for gaming. I would like to spend around $1200. What websites should I start looking at to find a good laptop in my price range?

They're out of stock at the moment...

The Alienware M11x is the only Alienware that is worth the money. It packs a punch.
