  • 1Description
Found in: Gaming Laptops

Crafted for immersive, high-definition gaming, the 15.6" Alienware 15 R4 Notebook from Dell balances power and portability. It is equipped with a 1920 x 1080 Full HD IPS display that is driven by 300 cd/m2 brightness, a refresh rate of 60 Hz, viewing angles of 160°, and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card with 6GB of GDDR5 VRAM. With a dedicated graphics card, you'll be able to crank up in-game visual settings and enable additional graphical eye-candy options to enjoy your games at their best. This GeForce GTX 1060 card has also been overclocked by NVIDIA, enabling improved performance when compared to a standard GTX 1060. Balancing out the rest of the system is a 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7-8750H Six-Core processor that can be overclocked to 4.1 GHz and 16GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 RAM that'll allow you to efficiently multitask and quickly access frequently used files and programs.

For storage, the Alienware 15 R4 has a 1TB 7200 rpm SATA III 2.5" hard drive and a 256 GB NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD. If you want to take advantage of external storage or connect peripherals such as optical drives, memory card readers, printers, and more, this can be done using one USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C port, two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports, one of which features PowerShare technology, and one Thunderbolt 3 port, which also supports USB 3.1 Gen 2. Furthermore, using its HDMI 2.0, mini-DisplayPort 1.3, and Thunderbolt 3 ports, you can connect external displays for extensive multitasking. Other integrated features include a Full HD webcam, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, a headphone/mic combo jack, a headset jack, stereo speakers, Alienware's TactX keyboard with N-key rollover, 5 user-programmable keys, and 4-zone, multi-color RGB-LED AlienFX lighting. Included is a 240W power adapter and a 4-cell / 68Wh lithium-ion battery. The installed operating system is Windows 10 Home (64-bit).

General Features

Up to 32GB RAM
The memory can be upgraded to 32GB using a 16GB module in each of the 260-pin SO-DIMM slots.
Internal Storage Upgrades
The system's internal storage can be upgraded or added to, as there are three M.2 SSD slots (one 2242 for SATA III & NVMe PCIe, one 2280 for SATA III & NVMe PCIe, and one 2280 for NVMe PCIe), as well as one 2.5" SATA III drive bay.
IPS Display
Built with an IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel, the display will provide you with wide 160°viewing angles and vivid colors for an immersive viewing experience.
Thunderbolt 3
Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB 3.1 at up to 10 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2 allows you to connect up to two 4K displays simultaneously. Additionally, you can daisy chain up to six devices from a single Thunderbolt 3 port.
HDMI 7.1-Channel Audio
The HDMI 2.0 port can output 7.1-channel digital audio.
Hinge-Forward Design
A hinge-forward design brings the thermal shelf to the rear, enabling a variety of improved benefits, such as a thinner overall design while increasing performance, improved ventilation, higher quality sound, and external ports organization.
Alienware TactX Keyboard
With an upgraded Alienware TactX keyboard, N-key rollover is now supported, enabling over 108-key commands for more actions per minute, and 2.2mm of key travel allows for rapid keystroke responses. Plus, it's reinforced with a steel backplate for rigidity and uniform feedback and a life of up to 10 million keystrokes.
AlienFX Lighting
Create a more personalized look for your machine with AlienFX lighting. This RGB/LED-enabled lighting is supported on over 130 games with the option to create and download unique themes. AlienFX lighting features 4-zone, multi-color RGB keyboard with lighting controls.
Designed to Keep Cool
A higher maximum thermal design power (TDP) support means that your system can handle a higher total wattage for internal components, enabling a higher level of performance. With the entire ventilation system upgraded, your system can stay cool even under extreme graphics pressure.
Hear Every Battle Cry
Due to the upgraded design, a larger and more effective speaker box has been installed, improving audio output for a clearer and more dramatic gaming experience.
Clear the Desktop and the Board
Avoid excess cables and embrace the "desktop mode" design, where most of your critical connections and ports are in the back and out of the way.
Killer Wireless
Killer DoubleShot Pro provides a wired and wireless networking setup that prioritizes internet traffic and data streams to the applications most important to you.
Alienware Graphics Amplifier Port
The Alienware Graphics Amplifier can be connected to this port and enables future-proofing of upgradeable full-length, dual-wide graphics and additional 4-port USB 3.1 Gen 1 hub for added peripherals. With a dedicated PCIe x4 Gen 3 with up to 40 Gb/s throughout, you won't have to worry about the disadvantages that come with a shared connection. Please note that the Alienware Graphics Amplifier is sold separately.
Alienware Full HD Camera
The built-in Full HD webcam supports Windows Hello and Tobii Aware eye tracking software so you can easily log into your PC as well as use your eyes to assist you within specific games.
VR-Ready
With an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card and a 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7-8750H Six-Core processor, the Alienware 15 is capable of producing high-end VR experiences.
Build Quality
The Alienware 15 is a good balance of power and portability and is made with premium materials for an overall higher quality build. Magnesium alloy helps ensure structural rigidity, anodized aluminum provides protection, copper allows for improved thermal management for higher performance, and reinforced steel contributes to the overall tactile comfort.

Windows 10

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Cortana
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana, can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the Internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information-gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
