Aftershock, Alienware, Aorus & Apple


The Aftershock GPX-15 (and its weaker sibling, the GP-15) is an exclusive gaming notebook from Aftershock that’s only available at the Gamepro Shop, premiering at The PC Show 2015. It’s a 15.6-inch notebook with a Full HD (1920 x 1080) IPS display, Intel Core i7-4720HQ (2.6GHz, 6MB cache) NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M (3GB VRAM), 8 GB RAM, 128GB + 1TB HDD, Killer 1525 AC Wi-Fi + Bluetooth, and runs Windows 8.1. It’s going for $2,219.

If you want a decent performing Aftershock laptop but aren’t willing to spend more than $2,000, then the Aftershock SM-17 is something you might want to look into. It is a gaming notebook with a 17.3-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) matte display, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 (2GB VRAM), 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, Killer 1525 AC Wi-Fi and runs Windows 8.1. It’s going for a very reasonable $1,806 (U.P. 1995) and comes with a free Aftershock Gaming Mouse and M7 Gaming headset.



If you can’t wait till end of the year for the Steam Machines to hit, the Alienware Alpha should tide you over nicely. It’s a compact desktop with its own custom chassis meant to be placed in your living room, just like a gaming console. It featuring an Intel Core i7-4765T (2GHz, 8MB cache), 8GB RAM, 2TB HDD, powered by a custom NVIDIA GeForce GTX GPU (2GB VRAM) and running Windows 8.1. It comes with an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller (with USB adapter) as well.



 There’s a reason the Aorus X7 Pro was our favorite gaming notebook for the HWZ Tech Awards. It’s a great gaming machine that’s not only powerful but is priced very competitively too! The Aorus X7 Pro is a 17.3-inch gaming notebook with a Full HD (1920 x 1080) display, comes with an Intel Core i7-4870HQ (2.5GHz, 6MB cache), SLI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M (3GB VRAM), 16GB RAM with Killer Connectivity (LAN and 802.11ac) and running Windows 8.1. It’s going for $3,999 (U.P. $4,499) with freebies.



Pick up a 64GB or 128GB Apple iPad Air 2 (starting at $828) from Nubox at the PC Show and you'll get $268 worth of free gifts, including a case, screen protector, 20,000mAh powerbank, mobile stand and charging cable.
