Dell Announce Three New Alienware Laptops

Dell have announced a new triumvirate of gaming laptops in their Alienware range, essentially rebooting and refining their existing 14, 17, and 18 inch notebooks with a renewed focus on durability and functionality on the go.

In an age where many gaming laptop companies such as Razer are seeking to slim down, Alienware appears happy retaining its bulky, angular design MO that apparently "takes its cues from jet engines and stealth bombers".

Durability and build quality is once again a key focus with an anodised aluminium shells and magnesium alloy bodywork, over 60 percent of the main mechanical components made of various metals, and the keyboard protected by a reinforced plate "to ensure a solid typing experience".

Alienware have also been listening to their critics and customers, and the new Alienware 14 will feature an anti-glare LCD display with wide viewing angles, as well as including a premium Full HD panel option with IPS; the Alienware 17 will have an optional 3D panel for people who think 3D makes a difference outside of an Oculus Rift and want to flush money down the drain; and finally the Alienware 18 will feature a Full HD display with PLS wide viewing-angle technology.

All of the new laptops will come packing quad-core 4th generation Intel Core i7 processors, and NVIDIA GeForce 700 series graphics, upwards of 8GB DDR3L memory for high-level performancce at lower voltages (thank god!), with support for up to three storage drives on the Alienware 14, and up to four storage drives on the Alienware 17 and 18. On top of that, "for the first time ever, the Alienware 18 will feature NVIDIA SLI dual graphics technology as standard, and the laptop will offer an overclocked CPU option with a maximum speed of 4.3GHz".

Here's a rundown of the release dates and starting prices for each model:
