Today at PAX West, Dell unveiled all-new Alienware gaming notebooks with Windows 10, including the introduction of its thinnest and first-ever VR-ready notebooks. To celebrate its 20th anniversary as a leading pioneer in specialty high-performance PC gaming systems, this new line of notebooks run on Windows 10 and boast the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10-Series family of GPUs, desktop-class graphics performance on notebooks and more.
Let’s take a look at these gaming-ready PCs:
The Alienware 17 with Windows 10
The new Alienware 17 is the ultimate gaming notebook with an emphasis on screen size, gaming performance and overall immersion. This flagship notebook gains more power, with overclocked Intel Core i7 processors and DDR4 memory running up to 2667 Mhz. Thinner than ever before, its new hinge-forward design increases system ventilation. New materials including anti-smudge finishes add great utility to its aggressive look. Alienware 17 also supports Windows Hello, so you can log onto your device with a scan of your face, rather than typing passwords, making security more convenient and natural.
Other features include:
- Powered by Windows 10
- Optional IR Tobii eye-tracking technology adds great accessibility features based on where you’re looking
- Intel Core i7 processors and DDR4 memory running up to 2667 Mhz
- New speaker design includes internal smart-amps that monitor audio waveforms, enabling the use of the entire thermal margin of the speaker for stronger sound

The Alienware 15 with Windows 10
Balancing superior gaming performance with portability, the new mid-size Alienware 15 is for gamers that want the best of both. With more power in a thinner frame, it comes with great graphics options from AMD and NVIDIA, including the stunning, VR-ready NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060. Coming standard with a 15.6” FHD, IPS Anti-Glare, 300-nits display, additional options include FHD 120Hz display with NVIDIA G-Sync for incredibly smooth, synchronized frame rates and UHD IGZO for 4k resolutions. Built to be on-the-go, its exceptional battery life keeps it going with a 68 watt-hour lithium ion battery and an optional 99 watt-hour battery to enable extended gameplay when away from a plug.

The new Alienware 13 may be the brand’s smallest notebook, but with some big improvements. Configurable with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10-Series graphics, this aggressive design will offer one of the most compact VR-ready devices ever. Whether gaming at high resolutions or in your own virtual world, trillions of LED lighting combinations through eight unique programmable lighting zones with up to 20 distinct colors deliver truly dazzling gameplay.

The Alienware Graphics Amplifier
The Alienware Graphics Amplifier is designed to propel your mobile gameplay to warp speed as a plug-in companion to Alienware laptops; small enough to slide into a standard carry case, yet powerful enough to transform mobile gaming, including VR, the Graphics Amp can be your ticket to otherworldly experiences.
Great for adding to your Graphics Amp or any Alienware device, Dell offers some of the best monitors in the world. The new Dell 24 Gaming Monitor (S2417DG) delivers sharp and clear QHD graphics and matches gamers’ speed of reaction with virtually no input lag at a 1 ms panel response time for the ultimate competitive edge. The Dell UltraSharp 34 Curved Monitor (U3417W) takes the benefits of curved, ultra-wide screens even further with a more immersive viewing experience; it’s perfect for going deeper into gaming action with extended peripheral vision and 18W speakers for a cinematic experience.
