Anyway, Frank Azor, general manager of Alienware and XPS, Dell, said in a statement that as Alienware brought unbelievable resolutions and technology 20 years ago, the new lineup of the fantastic Alienware gaming laptops was a product of that history. The company mentioned the new keyboard’s additional 2.2mm of travel, but the keyboard I had time with felt almost identical to its much-loved predecessor. The latest entrants to this series unveiled by the company are all VR-ready – the refreshed Alienware 13, Alienware 15, and Alienware 17.
Chris Sutphen, the senior marketing manager at Alienware, even confirmed that following the release of Nvidia’s new GPUs, the new lineup of Alienware gaming laptops rolled out.
The notebook features a chassis made of anodized aluminum and magnesium with steel reinforcements and copper. The Alienware 17 notebook has overclocked Intel Core i7 K series processors and DDR4 memory at up to 2667 MHz. The Alienware 17 however comes with the option for a built in Tobii’s eye tracking camera. It allows gamers to fine tune their skills with a new Overwolf app that can replay your gaze pattern so gamers can track where they were looking during gameplay; gamers can then learn from their mistakes and be sure to focus their attention on the best opportunities to crush the competition. However, both the 17 and 15-inch models can be configured with quad-core Core i7 chips, up to 32GB of RAM and 1TB of internal storage plus two battery choices – 68 Watt-Hour or 99 Watt-hour for serious play when away from a power outlet.
