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.

Packed with the latest gaming technologies, gamers are now able to enjoy even the smallest of details and appreciate the most graphically stunning games. Despite its small frame, the Alienware 13 does not compromise on visual clarity, offering an optional display powering a 2,560x1,440 QHD resolution.

Alienware also presents its first Ultra HD 4K screen on a notebook with the Alienware 15, which also comes in FHD option. The optional Ultra HD panel boasts an impressive 3,840x2,160 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 new Alienware 15 and 17 are also packed with Intel Core i7 quad-core processors and NVIDIA GTX 980m graphics to deliver maximum graphics performance for even the most intensive games. 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.
