There’s a lot to cover. so let’s begin with the thinnest gaming laptop Alienware has ever made.
For one of Portability and Performance
When it comes to gaming laptop, power and portability don’t always go hand in hand. Understanding this, Alienware has designed two series of devices: The performance centric M-Series and the thin X-Series.
The Alienware x14 is the company’s thinnest gaming laptop to date. Yet it manage to fit its Cryo-Tech cooling technology within the laptop’s new hinge design.
The x14 features up to Intel Core i7-12900H processor and up to an NVIDIA RTX 3060 laptop GPU with DDR5 RAM clocked to 5,200MHz. For storage it has an upgradable M.2 SSD slot that can support up to 2TB storage.
All that power is fitted into a body that is only 14.5mm thick along with a large 80Wh battery that is rated for 11 hours of HD video playback.
For those who want a bigger screen, there’s the Alienware x15 R2 and Alienware x17 R2 which features variants with RTX 30-Series GPUs, Intel 12th Gen processors, faster 6,400MHz memory, and AlienFX stadium lighting.
