Futuristic designs for the new age of gaming
In line with Alienware’s commitment to superb gaming experience, the new Alienware laptops are designed to be thinner without compromising on performance. The recently launched Alienware 13 is by far Alienware’s thinnest laptop ever, and the new Alienware 15 and 17 are both more than 20 percent thinner than their predecessors. Built with elements such as copper, aluminum and aerospace-inspired carbon fiber-filled materials for a rigid and performance-focused mechanical design, the Alienware 13, 15 and 17 focus on components that matter to gamers. The laptops also have a premium full-size keyboard with reinforced metals for uniform typing feedback, ensuring comfortable travel and quick responsiveness for gamers in action.

The optional Ultra HD panel boasts an impressive 3,840×2,160 resolution — 4x the base LCD option -– bringing users the ultimate visual revolution on their laptops. Gamers who demand a large screen will favour the Alienware 17 which prioritizes screen size and picture quality, providing gamers with wide, vivid viewing experience on a notebook. All three laptops also provide optional touchscreen technology for maximum usability.

The Alienware 17 offers a higher base graphics option and higher maximum CPU option than any other Alienware notebooks, promising supreme speed and performance as gamers immerse themselves in the action.
