Alienware’s Thinnest Laptop Yet Balances Power, Price, and Portability Nicely

All of a sudden, it seems like almost no one is making laptops like Alienware makes laptops: beefy, loud, and fast. Most of the top gaming laptop makers have embraced the design style popularised by Razer and supported by Nvidia’s Max-Q design ethos: thin and sacrificing a little power for portability. But not Alienware, man. This company is still making laptops that are lap in name only, and the Alienware m15, in particular, stands out, because it’s really big, it’s really powerful. And as it turns out, it’s surprisingly portable. Read More >>

Skip the Tourist Stuff and Just Lock Yourself Up in This Hotel’s Bananas Gaming Suite

If you’re a gamer who doesn’t want to haul a PC with you on holiday, you could book your next trip to Panama City where the local Hilton has packed a ridiculously customised hotel room full of high-end gaming gear and accessories. The beanbag chairs, VR goggles, and racing seat all make sense to me, but why did the designers bother including a shower and two beds? Read More >>

Alienware Proves That Laptop Size Doesn’t Have to Matter

When it comes to playing games, I’ve always preferred consoles to computers. Building (or buying) a custom gaming rig can be fun, but I need a dedicated laptop. And gaming laptops can definitely bring the power, but often with a size and battery-life trade-off that would make it impossible to use in any non-gaming scenario. So it used to be that if I wanted to game, it was easier to for me to spend money on an Xbox One S or PlayStation 4 Pro, rather than messing with PCs. But the new Alienware 13 is changing my mind about gaming laptops. Read More >>

Alienware Says Alpha is Still in Alpha

The Alienware Alpha is smaller and more powerful than an Xbox 360 or PS4, but the £449 Windows-powered game console shipped a little half-baked. Not to worry, says Alienware: updates are on the way! "We're in the alpha phase of Alpha," admits the company. Read More >>

Alienware Alpha Review: Close, But No Game Console

The Alienware Alpha sounds awesome. It's smaller and more powerful than the PS4 and Xbox One. It doubles as an actual Windows PC! But be warned: it's not as easy to use as a game console, not as foolproof. It's not nearly the slam dunk I was hoping it would be. Read More >>

The New Alienware 13-Inch Laptop Promises Pro Gaming Without Backache

Gaming laptops are going mobile. Of course, the word "laptop" means that's always been the idea behind these machines. But until recently, gaming on the go meant being strapped with a pretty hefty piece of computing. Such massive hardware, usually with a scorching hot chassis and shit battery life, makes you wonder if it's even worth it. Read More >>

This is Alienware’s Steam Machine

It feels like everyone has Steam Machine to tout these days, and Alienware is no exception. But not all Steam Machines happen to look like an evil TiVo from the future like the Alienware X51 does. Alienware's been selling computers with Steam pre-installed for years, but they go whole-hog with this bad boy late 2014. Configurations and pricing to vary, but yeah, it'll run Crysis.

Hands-On With Alienware’s 18 Inch Gaming Machine: This Is Not a Laptop

Let's be clear: when Alienware say that the flagship of their new gaming laptop range is the 18, they're lying. The 18 is not a laptop. It is a leviathan, with two discrete graphics cards, 8GB of GPU RAM alone, and 4 -- count 'em, 4 -- SSDs. This is insanity. Read More >>
