Alienware 17 17.3-Inch Laptop
Big screen. Big performance.
The Alienware 17 is thinner and lighter than any 17 inch laptop we’ve created before, but that doesn't mean we skimped on performance. It’s crafted with aerospace-inspired carbon fiber filled surfaces that add stiffness and durability, copper heat sinks that enable proper cooling. Powered by high-performance latest generation Intel processors, and offering a new USB Type-C port with support for SuperSpeed USB 10 Gbps (USB 3.1) and Thunderbolt 3 technologies, the Alienware 17 is designed to give you the best experience on an impressive screen.
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.
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.
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.
Mobility meets connectivity
Hook up your favorite accessories with the new superfast USB Type-C port, offering speeds 2x as fast as USB 3.0 with SuperSpeed USB 10Gbps (USB 3.1).
Blow your hair back: Use your USB Type- C port as a Thunderbolt 3 port, and experience 40Gbps (4x the USB 3.1 protocol) or drive 4K displays as if the port were a Thunderbolt or DisplayPort. Or maximize your options by daisychaining your Thunderbolt devices together.
Better, faster, clearer
Run 4K resolution content @60Hz using the new HDMI 2.0 port, for better resolution, smoother graphics and an overall upgrade in awesomeness.
Solid-State Drive (SSD): Solid-state drives are similar to the flash-based memory that you find in USB memory devices and have no moving parts, making them more secure and less prone to failure than standard hard drives. SSDs also pull your data from the drive faster and outperform 10,000 rpm Hard Disk Drives (HDDs) in read/write speeds, meaning you’ll also get faster load times on game maps and other information that’s stored on your device.
For people on the go, the potential benefits are significant.
Improved performance — faster boot times, faster application launches and faster access to all your documents.
Durability — helps protect your important files from potential drops.
Longer battery life — lower power consumption by SSDs than HDDs.
Quieter, lightweight, and cooler than standard hard drives.
