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, and 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 Super Speed 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.
Built for intense gaming.
- More power: Alienware 17 automatically overclocks and monitors internal temperatures to keep your system running cool when the action is hot and deliver performance precisely when you need it.
- Lean and mean on a big screen: Enjoy IPS (in-plane switching)-based LCD technology on an expansive 17" screen that offers stunningly clear color and clarity. Get up to pixel density for astonishing color clarity, and extra wide viewing angles.
- Sound and fury: Rich, impressive audio is powered by Klipsch and Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi technology. Visually connect with comrades and competitors with a 2.0MP Full HD webcam and let the banter flow with a dual microphone array.
- The family powerhouse: Outfitted with the latest generation Intel processors, it is equipped for advanced power and a seamless gaming experience.
- Supercharged gaming: The processors in Alienware 17 offer Dynamic Overclocking to kick in extra power when your game demands it, so you won’t miss a beat.
- Connect and conquer: A double-shot of the best gaming networking technology is inside with Killer Gigabit Ethernet and Killer Wireless 802.11ac WiFi so you’re getting the smoothest possible streaming video and gaming packets when you need them most. Multitask when you need to, without any lags or lulls in the performance you crave. Plus, all Alienware 17 laptops come with Bluetooth 4.1 technology.
Cutting edge craftsmanship.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
