This Alienware Aurora with an RTX 3070 is just $1,499 - surprisingly good value

Image Description

Alienware and value are two words that don't normally pair together, but hear us out - we've spotted a fantastic gaming PC deal in the form of this Aurora Ryzen Edition R10 for just $1,499.39.

Not only is this premium machine rocking a $390 price cut, but it's coming with an RTX 3070, AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD - fantastic specs for enthusiast level gaming that'll get you maxing out those games at great frame rates.

A few years ago, we'd always advocate building your own gaming PC for maximum value. Right now, however, the worldwide shortage of GPUs has meant that cheap graphics card deals are rare as hen's teeth these days, with some of the higher-end Nvidia and AMD cards fetching truly stratospheric levels.

Seriously though, a quick scan on eBay and Amazon for these parts shows prices that will set you back $1,100 for the RTX 3070 and Ryzen 7 alone right now. In context, suddenly this Alienware gaming PC deal starts to look like great value - something that almost seems unbelievable considering how premium this brand is.

Being a premium brand, you're also going to get a great case here with effective cooling and very neat and tidy cable management. These new Alienware cases also feature a modular tool-less design inside as well, so upgrading is extremely convenient down the line.

Not that you'll need to upgrade for some time with this Alienware Aurora, however. That RTX 3070 alone should see you through for a few good years down the line and the Ryzen 7 is still a very capable CPU indeed. Subsequently, this Alienware gaming PC deal looks like a winner if you're looking to upgrade in early 2021.

  • Apple’s March Event is official – here’s what to expect, including iPhone SE 3

    Invites to Apple's first product launch event of 2022 arrived on Wednesday, informing the world that the company's much-anticipated product event will be held virtually on March 8 at 10 AM PST.

    Often referred to as its "Spring Event," Apple's March and April product launches almost invariably feature new consumer-grade iPads, one or more MacBooks (Airs are often nice!), and a surprise or two.

    See more

    In the 24 hours leading up to the official announcement, #AppleEvent was trending on Twitter, as though people were attempting to will the event into existence. Oh, the disappointment if the announcement didn't come today. This time, though, the pundits were right. Now we have this colorful invite and the words "Peek Performance," along with the tune "Wonder" by Yung Bae.

    While the multi-color Apple logo is surely a nod to a new, colorful line of MacBook Airs and iPad Airs, the word "Peek" is a possible hint that we might get a look at Apple's AR glasses project. That's a long shot, though.

    Here's what we think you can expect when Apple CEO Tim Cook takes the stage at the company's  2022 product kick-off on Tuesday.

    iPhone SE 3 and iPad Air

    So what will Apple show off this time around? The rumor mill has been pointing in the direction of a new iPhone SE, namely the iPhone SE 3.

    Analysts and possible leaks point to a cheaper device than the last $399 / £389 / AU$679 model. It could be in the $300 range (£290 and AU$510). A redesign, one that moves it from iPhone 8 territory into the edgier iPhone 13 zone, seems unlikely. 

    As a budget device, the iPhone SE has been stuck with 64GB and 128GB storage options (iPhone 13 starts with 128GB). The iPhone SE 3 might drop the low-end storage and open it up to a 256GB tier. On the other hand, can Apple make the phone cheaper while still raising the base storage space?

    At least the new iPhone SE 3 should feature Apple's latest mobile silicon, the A15 Bionic, and might even be 5G. That last part makes more sense when you think about how not only Apple but carriers would like to move everyone to the faster and pricier connectivity tier.

    It's a good bet that an iPad or two is in the air, as well. The iPad Air 5 is heavily rumored to appear this quarter. Analysts appear split on whether the slab will move from LCD screen technology to the richer, possibly thinner OLED. A 10.9-inch display, though, is still probably a lock. No one expects Apple to squeeze a TrueDepth notch and Face ID into the iPad Air (heck, they might be walking away from the notch this year).

    As is usually the case, Apple will upgrade the components, while leaving the design and other key features in place. Expect an A15 Bionic CPU and a 5G option.

    Even if Apple doesn't shift the iPhone SE to a higher storage tier, it's unlikely it will leave the base iPad Air 5 at 64GB. The entry-level for these creativity and consumption tablets must be 256GB. At least, that's our hope.

    All hail the M2

    Since Apple has traditionally released one consumer MacBook (sometimes more) in the spring, it's fair to assume we could see a new MacBook Air next week. However, the news here won't necessarily be the new system, it'll be the Apple Silicon running inside it: the long-rumored M2.

    The excitement surrounding Apple's first second-generation M-series chip, though, might overshadow what is expected to be a significant system redesign. The MacBook Air is expected to lose most of its soft shoulders in favor of a slightly more industrial and squared-off design, one that might make it look like a clamshell cousin to the iPad Air. Other design tweaks include new colors and even a white keyboard (that thing is gonna look dingy after a few months).

    As for the M2, no one expects more cores, but Apple will optimize the heck out of its system to raise performance somewhere between the classic M1 and its M1 Pro line.

    AirPods Pro 2

    AirPods Pro are, while aging gracefully, primed for an update. The AirPods Pro 2 could arrive next week with some impressive health-and-fitness-related features.

    Some rumors point to workout tracking (which might mean heart-rate monitoring and even temperature). Others have the AirPods Pro 2 swapping out Bluetooth for some sort of optical transmission (we think this is unlikely).

    We could also see a more affordable pair of Airpods Pro Lite, though how they would differ from AirPods 3 is unclear.

    One more thing

    Could the surprise be a completely new Apple TV device, maybe even the long-rumored and now nearly forgotten Apple TV set? 

    That's right, Apple could still unveil its first smart TV in up to three sizes (42-in., 50-in., 65-in., if we had to guess). All would integrate the Apple TV streaming box features, offer a brilliant 4K LED display (maybe with an 8K option at the largest size), and a one-year free subscription to Apple TV+.

    It's a major stretch and the more likely surprise product is one that slams together HomePod mini and the Apple TV box: a smart speaker that can control all your smart devices via voice, play Adele's latest album through Apple music, and stream Ted Lasso.

    Apple Glasses

    Yes, we originally had Apple Glasses in the "don't expect" category, but a thrilling discovery changed our minds. It might be the biggest surprise of all.

    What’s you probably won't see on March 8

    Apple has a lot of options for its Tuesday, March 8th event, but we expect them to hold some stuff back for later in the year.

    It's unlikely the Apple Watch Series 8 will appear. That's traditionally a fall update that follows the watchOS 9 reveal we expect in June during WWDC2022.

    Also do not expect:

    Whatever Apple does announce, TechRadar will be there (virtually, like you), covering every last introduction and reporting it in a live blog and lots of fun, juicy stories.

    We are so ready to take our first bite of the 2022 Apple.

  • Boxing Day laptop sales: the deals to expect on MacBooks, Chromebooks, Dell, and more

    Over the next 48 hours, we expect that many of this year's Boxing Day laptop sales to get underway, with discounted laptops, Chromebooks and MacBooks aplenty. We've got our fingers crossed that some of these price cuts extend all the way through to the January sales as well in case you aren't exactly in the right state to go bargain hunting after the Christmas celebrations.

    Those up bright and early will find savings usually get started promptly in the Boxing Day sales so we'll also be on hand to bring you all the cheapest laptop deals as soon as possible. In fact, the Currys Boxing Day sales have started a little earlier this year, so you can already save on laptops and other electronics. No doubt the likes of Amazon, John Lewis, Argos and Very will all get involved later, too, as well as some of the more specialist retailers such as Box and Laptops Direct. 

    Whether you've got £200 or £2000 to spend, you should be able to find something on offer to suit your budget. That may be one of the many cheap Chromebooks we've already seen throughout the year, a small discount on the latest M1 MacBook Pro model or something in between. From this page, you can jump to each individual retailer sale, but we'll also highlight some of the very best Boxing Day laptop deals if you need some inspiration.

    This is likely the last chance to grab a bargain before the year comes to a close, so bookmark us or check back in over the next couple of weeks as we continue to share all the top offers up for grabs now and in the January sales.

    Best Boxing Day laptop sales: quick links

    Today's best deals

    Until some Boxing Day laptop sales are actually underway at a number of retailers, we've dropped in some of the top offers from our weekly roundup of the best laptop deals you can buy right now. Just below, you can find a selection of cheap Chromebooks for light work, as well as some excellent value for money mid-range machines and powerful ultrabooks for more demanding jobs.

    HP 14a Chromebook: £379 £329 at Currys
    Save £50
    – You can claim £50 cashback on this solid entry-level Chromebook at Currys. The 14-inch screen means it suits longer working periods and a better streaming experience compared to the smaller 11-inch Chromebooks. What impresses most of all at this price, though, is the inclusion of 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. You would normally have to pick between one or the other at this price, so having both gives a huge boost to the laptop's performance and storage capacity. It was £299 just a few days ago, but you still won't find a better cheap laptop deal this week.
