Alienware 17 laptop to satisfy all your hardcore gaming needs
Feast your eyes on the Alienware 17 Gaming Laptop, the newest combination of performance and graphics in a revolutionary design from Dell. With Gamecom 2013 underway, and PAX Prime in a week, now’s the time to become acquainted with the best that portable PC gaming has to offer.
First off, depending on your budget and how intense you want your laptop to be, the Alienware 17 will run you anywhere from $1499 to $4349. All models of the 17 have 17.3-inch antiglare Full HD (1080p) displays, but there is an option to go with the Truelife 1080p 3D panel. The laptops come equipped with Intel i7 quad-core processors, and they start at 8GB of memory, upgradeable to 32GB.
While you have options for video cards, the basic option is the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M with 2GB GDDR5. That’s the basic, which speaks volumes about the power packed into this machine. If you really want to go all out, you’re more than welcome to upgrade to the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M, which sports 4GB GDDR5. For hard drive space, while the Alienware 17s start with 750GB, you can also choose from some different options. Want your gaming laptop to scream with a 1TB Quad Play solid-slate drive? That’s four 256GB SSDs in a RAID 0 configuration… yea, it’s as awesome as it sounds.
For audio nuts out there, the speakers are certified by Klipsch sound engineers and the system comes with Dolby Home Theater v4 software, so it’ll be good whether you’re listening to music, watching a movie or playing a game.
Each of the Alienware 17 laptops comes with the redesigned Alienware Command Center 3.0. It essentially lets you control everything about your laptop – from lighting to performance. You can create different lighting combinations and special effects with over 20 different colors and 10 different zones; keep an eye on your system’s performance or change the way your games launch with AlienAdrenaline; or customize how your touch pad operates – it’s all up to you.
Finally, the design of the Alienware 17 gaming laptop is cutting edge. It bleeds style (with that distinctive Alienware look), but it also has purpose. To protect the LCD, the outer surface is an aluminum shell reinforced by a magnesium alloy frame. The rear GPU/CPU exhaust vent directs air flow from the bottom of the system, through the internal heat sink, and out the rear of the laptop. The palm rest and keyboard are made of soft-touch material for maximum comfort. Add in other features, like a Blu-ray drive, and there’s nothing to not love.
If you’re looking for the gaming laptop that will keep up, and even out-perform desktops, the Alienware 17 will meet your needs. No matter what you’re looking for, there’s tons of customization to create the gaming rig on-the-go of your dreams.
