Tech Deals: Alienware & Dell XPS Gaming Laptops, LG Nexus 5, MacBook Air Vinyl Sticker, More

Today’s tech deals are what you could quite easily class as “varied”. On one hand, we have a relatively low-cost unlocked Nexus 5 smartphone that would functional perfectly as a travel companion, while on the other hand, we have two touchscreen laptops with some very impressive specifications targeted towards gamers or power users.

Breaking it down further, in addition to the 4G-enabled Nexus 5 which can be updated to the latest Android Marshmallow version, the two laptops mentioned earlier are premium offerings with top notch specs and are powered by Windows 10.


There’s also a smart home phone system in the form of the Ooma Telo + Linx Wireless accessory that can connect to the Internet. Lastly, if you happen to own a 13.3-inch MacBook Air, don’t miss out on the incredibly tough and cool looking vinyl sticker/protector for your OS X/macOS-powered Apple machine.

Whatever you decide to get, it is important to note that these deals usually last for a day only, or till stock lasts, whichever comes first. So if there’s anything in here that you fancy getting, make sure you act fast before it gets too late. Ready? Lets go!

Ooma Telo + Linx Wireless Accessory, Smart Home Phone Service ($89.99, usually $138.00)


This is a little different to the normal technology deals that we bring you, but let’s face it, it’s technology-based, it’s low cost, and it does a great job of saving you money in local and nationwide calling. This little piece of kit connects to your high-speed home Internet and regular home phone line to give you crystal clear nationwide calling for free or very low rates. There’s superior audio quality, voicemail, Caller ID, all of the other luxuries that you’d expect from a landline service, but with a modern twist.

LG Google Nexus 5, 16GB, Unlocked, Refurb ($119.99, usually 195.00)


This may be a certified refurbished Nexus 5 smartphone, but it’s still worth every cent of the $119.99 asking price. The LG-manufactured Google Nexus 5 comes with 16GB of internal storage, 4G LTE connectivity for super-fast data speeds, as well as an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera for mobile photography fans. All of that power is backed up by a quad-core processor running Android KitKat – upgradeable to Marshmallow – for a premium experience. It may not be the most recent in the Nexus franchise of smartphones, but it’s still worth it, especially at this price.

Dell 13.3-inch QHD+ Touchscreen Laptop ($1,149.99, usually $1,499.99)


If you’re looking for a highly performant and beautiful laptop, but would prefer to stay away from Apple’s MacBooks, but want something of the same caliber, then the Dell XPS9350 could be exactly what you are seeking. The QHD+ touchscreen is accompanied by an Intel Dual Core i7 2.5GHz processor with an accompanying 8GB RAM, and 256GB SSD. Of course, it runs the latest Windows 10 and backs up all of that traditional laptop functionality with an amazing touchscreen.

Vati Leaves Removable Rain Protective Vinyl Decal for MacBook Air 13.3-inch ($15.99, usually $59.99)


Sometimes you just have to make an additional investment to protect the already expensive investment that you’ve already made. Apple’s MacBook Airs may cost a lot of money, but unfortunately that are still susceptible to the likes of water and dust ingress damage. Thankfully, there’s relatively low cost solutions to that problem, one of which is this removable vinyl decal that is dustproof, waterproof, oil proof and prevents fingerprints from showing up.

Alienware 13-inch QHD+ Touchscreen Gaming Laptop ($1,199.99, usually $1,749.99)


In a similar fashion to the Dell laptop above, sometimes you have a large laptop budget that needs to be spent, but want something a bit more powerful than what Apple offers. If the Dell device didn’t tickle your fancy, then maybe this gaming Alienware powered by Intel Dual Core i7 2.5GHz processor with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M + 2GB GDDR5 RAM will. There’s 16GB DDR3 RAM alongside a 256GB solid state drive for optimum performance. And of course, like the Dell option, there’s also a stunning touchscreen to enhance how users interact with the Windows 10 software.
