Alienware Vindicator 2.0 17in Backpack - Multiple sites @ $69.99

Dell, Amazon, and BestBuy all have the Alienware Vindicator 2.0 17in Backpack on sale for $69.99 right now.

If you have an Alienware 17 R4, you will know that finding a backpack to fit it is near impossible. It's just a weird shape that is deeper than most 17in laptops. This Vindicator 2.0 is the updated design from the original 17in Vindicator, now designed to fit the new 17 R4 laptops.
It may also fit other large gaming laptops that do not fit the avg. 17in size.

It was this price last week, and I managed to snag an openbox from BestBuy for $55.99
Does not look like there are any openbox in BB's online inventory right now, but do check your local area as there might be one available near you.
Note: If you find one openbox in your local store, the BB site had the in-store ones listed for $51.99

According to the camel site, this backpack hit $69.99 earlier this year for a short while.
Other than that, this is the lowest price this backpack has ever been.
Happy Trails . . .

I use the Lenovo y series one that almost looks like a knock off alienware one. It fits my 17r4 extremely well. I may get this one though to match better...because branding.

Even though I have a 13 R3 I picked this up. Good deal on the open box for sure if you can find one. So much room for activities!

I bought a few other laptops before I landed on a Alienware. Unfortunately you can't build it on your own so you pay for the engineering and design. A lot of laptop felt flimsy and the cooling was not efficient. If you're patient you can grab one for a price worth paying for.

Yeah, I would say so. It is wider looking than most backpacks, mostly due to needing to fit the depth of the 17 R4 machine. Also looks wider than it is because of the way the triangular shield area on the front of it appeals to the eye.

Keep in mind that this backpack is on the slimmer side. Meaning it will not hold a ton of stuff like a XL backpack would. I am comparing to something like the Everki Titan, for reference.
The Vindicator 2.0 is wide and tall, but relatively shallow hanging off your back. It does have some expansion with a zipper inside that follows the entire inner perimeter. Gives the pack roughly 2-3in more expansion room.

Several years ago I would have agreed with you. However, recent AW machines have become very competitive on the pricing vs other gaming machines. Maybe not at full retail price, but you would have to be highly incompetent or a complete moron to pay full retail for an AW now days. Dell usualy has some kind of sale going on every month. Then there is the outlet as well.
So vs other gaming laptops when purchasing at sensible prices, I find the AW machines very compelling. And you get better build quality to boot, most of the time.

If you had got in on the deal that several of us recently managed, I doubt you would be saying that.
Most of us ended up with an AW 17 R4 w/GTX1070, i7-6700/7700, 16gb Ram, 128gb SSD, 1TB HDD, and either an ips 1080p or TN 120Hz 1440p panel.... all for right around $1000.

I think you would be hard pressed to find a machine of this caliber anywhere close to this price range.


But overall, yes, AW is typically overpriced on the MSRP.
This bag is a good example of that. At $130, I wouldn't touch it with a 30ft pole. At $70, I am hesitant to bite, but the quality of the bag is worth around this price in my opinion.

yes, this is made for a 17in laptop, so this is good for all fat people.

Can confirm.

...but I would like to see a bag that looks small with a +17in laptop in it - that'd be magic.
