Alienware is Offering Free Skylake Upgrade for Notebook Users
Alienware is offering users free “Skylake” upgrade, if they have bought a notebook within 30 days of a new CPU’s release. Meaning if you have bought a CPU in the last 30 days, you’re getting a free Skylake upgrade.
New notebooks launched @Alienware last week. If u buy one & a new CPU launches within the next 30 days, u get a free upgrade ;). Badass

So, all Alienware 13 R2, Alienware 15 R2 and Alienware 17 R3 systems ordered between the 27th of August and the 28th of September will be upgraded to appropriate Skylake CPUs once they hit the shelves.
Also, the company claimed that it will start to roll out Skylake based notebooks in the coming weeks. Alienware mentioned them releasing by the end of September, so be prepared to get a new Skylake back device.
Of course, this is good news for those who bought a Haswell based machine, which is a slower than Skylake.
