Des ign 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 qualityconstruction, where high performance is expected, and the ultimate experience is desired. 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 design approach.
Our finishing process enables reduced “smudginess” and fingerprinting residue on the palm rest. The steel-reinforced Alienware TactX keyboard is 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 gaming-grade travel. This top cover incorporates anodized aluminum and features the iconic Alien head. The Alienware 17 includes 13 programmable AlienFX lighting zones which can also be used by supported game titles.
