The new Alienware 17 is for consumers looking for a gaming notebook that prioritizes screen size,
gaming performance and overall immersion above all else. This is our new flagship notebook –
that is VR-capable while being more powerful, and thinner, than it’s predecessor with superior
construction and newly added support for optional Tobii eye-tracking technology providing a new
way to experience your PC and feel the game. Performance-wise, the new generation of
Alienware laptops are engineered to support factory-overclocked NVIDIA’s 10-series GeForce
graphics, the new Intel Core, and up to 2666 MHz DDR4 memory. This new generation introduces
the 8th generation Intel CPUs with the Core i9 K-series processors supporting dynamic
overclocking at new starting at price point of $1,599 in the US.
Gamers looking for more upgradability and functionality, will be able to connect the optional
Alienware Graphics Amplifier which allows for the latest AMD and NVIDIA desktop graphics.
Design and Materials.
Our industrial design includes materials
ranging from anodized aluminum,
magnesium alloy, steel reinforced keys, and
copper thermal modules. The choices have
been made to deliver high quality
construction, where high performance is
expected, and the ultimate experience is
The chassis design delivers increased total
system ventilation and enables a higher
TDP with most of the thermal dissipation
occurring towards the rear. Our hingeforward
design has enabled more rear I/O,
improved audio, larger internal fans with
improved acoustic pitch and a 25% thinner
Alienware 15. Even the speaker design and
audio quality has improved thanks to the
Our finishing process enables reduced
“smudginess” and fingerprinting residue on the

designed for uniform feedback while typing plus a
numeric keypad and 9 programmable keys
designed to help the gamer feel at home, and in
control, wherever they are. The TactX keyboard
introduces an optimized RGB LED lighting
articulation designed for a better lighting than the
predecessor and each key has a full 2.2mm of
