Alienware is still something that we all crave for …
Alienware finally made a thin and light gaming laptop, and it was worth the wait. For years, Dell’s gaming brand has been pumping out powerful, but hefty gaming machines. The Alienware m15, though, is its first step towards a truly modern laptop design. And it’s here just in time — throughout 2018 we saw companies like ASUS, Razer and MSI all deliver thin new machines of their own. The m15 is a sign Alienware won’t be left behind.
The m15 weighs 4.8 pounds and is 18mm thick. That’s a huge improvement over Alienware’s earlier batch of notebooks, which are the sort of things only gamers could love. They’re seriously heavy — the last 15-inch model weighed 7.7 pounds, and even the 13″ version clocked in at almost six. One reason for their heft was Alienware’s huge cooling setup, which stuck out behind the displays like they were venting hot rods.
