Alienware 13 R2 laptop

Laptops are great for almost everything. But one sector where laptops have often taken a backseat is among hardcore gamers. To get a laptop capable of handling today's super-charged, graphics-intensive blockbuster game releases, you need a rig with a world-class (and we mean elite-level) graphics card, a top-flight CPU and room for expandability. Problem is, to get all that performance under one hood (and keep it cool), you usually lose portability — and end up with a laptop that feels like you're lugging around a boat anchor.

You'll also be looking at a price tag north of $1,000 once you're done…so wouldn't you just rather pick up a tricked-out, gaming-centric laptop like the Alienware 13 R2 laptop – for FREE?

Yep, we've got a top-of-the-line, gaming-focused laptop from Alienware – and it's going out to one of you for nothing as the winner of the Alienware Gaming Laptop Giveaway.

We likely don't need to sell you on Alienware's bonafides – they've been an industry leader in cutting-edge gaming hardware for 20 years. Suffice it to say, the 13 R2 has everything that's made Alienware a name synonymous with portable gaming: a wickedly fast 6th-gen Intel Core i5 CPU, an equally slick NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M GPU (with an optional graphics amplifier) and a souped-up battery boasting all-day play on a single charge.

Even packing an advanced copper heat pipe cooling system, the 13 R2 only weighs in around 4.5 lbs., which ain't bad for a laptop designed to run high-end games.
