- Intel Core i7
A reassuringly powerful option for those that take their gaming seriously, the Alienware 15 R4 packs in the kind of technology that puts games consoles (and most desktop PCs) to shame. Combining a blazing fast 8th Generation Intel Core processor with Nvidia's 1070 GTX graphics card, it will have you gaming at the highest settings for years to come.
Alienware design their machines to stand out from the crowd, and the Alienware 15 is no exception. From the iconic Alienware logo on the exterior to Alienware's unmistakeable trim and keyboard lighting, it won't fail to impress. The chassis is composed of anodized aluminum and magnesium alloy, so it's strong and rigid while remaining lightweight.
The Alienware 15 R4 features an 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor. With 6 cores running at a maximum of 3.9GHz, it will handle everyday tasks with ease, and can ramp up to provide high resolution or VR gaming.
It used to be that laptops had to compromise on graphics cards, which were too large or expensive to fit into laptop cases. Alienware bucks this trend by including an nVidia Geforce 1070 GTX graphics card, with 8GB of GDDR5 memory. This will power through gaming at Full HD resolution and even manage 4K resolution gaming if connected to a higher resolution screen. It's also more than powerful enough for VR gaming.
Fast and responsive
The 1TB HDD provides all the storage you'll need for documents and media. The inclusion of a 256G SSD allows for the operating system to boot super quickly. You can also install whatever games you're playing at the time on the SSD, meaning drastically reduced loading times.
Screen envyThe Full HD screen will make browsing photos or watching videos a pleasure, and the 15.6" width provides a good compromise between ultra-portable and desktop replacement.
