Cutting edge craftsmanship.
Carbon fiber craftsmanship: Inspired by aerospace technologies, the carbon fiber
composites in Alienware laptops deliver a unique rigidity and high stiffness-to-weight
ratio. The result is a whole new tactile experience.
Sleek. Solid. Aluminum.: Displays this good require serious protection, so we encased
them in an anodized aluminum shell that matches the hinge strength and structural
rigidity and boasts a new, iconic design.
Cooler with copper: Churn out maximum power while keeping your cool. Copper thermal
modules allow your graphics cards and processors to perform at the highest level while
the heat pipes and blocks prevent overheating.
Guaranteed up to 10 million keystrokes: Experience the sensation of uniform feedback
with the reinforced steel plate of our TactX keyboard, which also protects internal components
from debris. Launch shortcuts to applications or even macros in-game, thanks to nine
customizable keys capable of up to 19 unique commands, programmed via the Alienware
Command Center software.
Rigorously tested for robust durability: Alienware laptops are tested to stand up to tens of
thousands of functions : power button pushes, hinges opening and closing, twists, turns,
and up to 1 million touchpad strokes. We test hard so you can game hard, reliably.
