Found in: Gaming Laptops

Crafted for immersive, high-definition gaming, the 17.3" Alienware m17 Gaming Laptop from Dell balances power and portability. It is equipped with a 1920 x 1080 Full HD IPS display that offers 300 cd/m2 brightness, a contrast ratio of 500:1, a refresh rate of 60 Hz, and viewing angles of 170°. The display is driven by a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card with 6GB of GDDR6 VRAM that allows you to crank up in-game visual settings and enjoy your games at their best. 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 2666 MHz DDR4 RAM that'll allow you to efficiently multitask and quickly access frequently used files and programs.

For storage, the Alienware m17 has a 256GB NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD and a 1TB SATA III 2.5" solid-state hybrid drive (SSHD) with an 8GB cache. 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 three 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 2.0b, Mini DisplayPort 1.3, and Thunderbolt 3 ports, you can connect external displays for extensive multitasking. Other integrated features include an Alienware Full HD webcam, Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac), Bluetooth 5.0, a headphone/mic combo jack, stereo speakers, Alienware's AlienFX mSeries keyboard with anti-ghosting technology and programmable macro keys, and AlienFX lighting. Included is an AC adapter, a power cord, and a 4-cell / 60Wh lithium-ion battery. The installed operating system is Windows 10 Home (64-bit).

General Features

Travel Light, Triumph Big
The Alienware m17 is made for more than just the on-the-go gaming. It's Dell's thinnest and lightest 17" gaming laptop, coming in at only 0.9" and 5.79 pounds. To give you powerhouse performance, it's packed with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphics and NVIDIA technologies like ray tracing, DLSS, and AI-enhanced graphics rendering. In addition to its power and portability, the m17 offers a long battery life with its 4-cell / 60Wh lithium-ion battery.
Take Your Graphics Further
The optional Alienware Graphics Amplifier supports next generation NVIDIA and AMD graphics cards and includes an additional 4-port USB 3.0 hub for added peripherals. With a dedicated PCI Express x4 Gen 3 slot with up to 40 Gb/s of throughput, you never have to worry about the disadvantages that come with a shared connection.
AlienFX Keyboard
The keyboard has a 1.4mm travel per keystroke and an alphanumeric keypad that was designed specifically for gamers on the go. The keyboard is also enabled with AlienFX lighting technology.
AlienFX Lighting
The game has been changed with FX Lighting. You can personalize your machine by choosing from an array of color options and effects that correspond to different zones across your system. In addition, you can create custom themes, save those for later and then swap between them to help accelerate your editing.

Deliberately Slim, Decidedly Savage

Survival of the Thinnest
Defeat your opponents with a machine that's engineered to be Dell's thinnest and lightest 17" gaming notebook yet. Manufactured with strict build tolerances and high-end materials, it ensures improved performance without ever sacrificing power.
Bigger Visuals
The m17 is designed for total immersion and maximum portability, with a larger 17.3" display to take you even deeper in the game.
Premium Gaming
Built with high-end industrial materials like magnesium alloy, a light structural metal, the Alienware m17 is designed for a performance-driven user experience. In addition to its light weight, magnesium alloy improves rigidity, steel ensures tactile comfort, and copper in the thermal module keeps the graphics and processor cool.

Commanding Performance

Keep Your Cool
A cooling system featuring Cryo-Tech v2.0 thermal technology helps ensure that the system's GPU thermal design power is enabled and keeps your system cool as the action heats up.
Kick Performance Into High Gear
Engineered with a 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7-8750H Six-Core processor, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card, and up to 16GB of 2666 MHz DDR4 memory in a 2 x 8GB configuration, the Alienware m17 possesses powerful performance for uninterrupted gameplay and other activities. The memory can also be upgraded to 32GB using a 16GB module in each of the two SO-DIMM memory slots.
Storage Experience
Enjoy faster load times and a quieter system thanks to multiple storage options, including PCIe M.2 SSDs and high-capacity hybrid HDDs with 8GB solid-state memory.

Tools Gamers Need

Make Your Presence Felt
A front-facing integrated camera offers a Full HD 1080p resolution for great clarity. Emphasize every battle cry with dual-array microphones featuring support from Windows Cortana.
Killer Networking
Killer E2500, a Gigabit Ethernet Controller, is designed to deliver fast throughput and lower latency gameplay by reducing lag or jitter. The optional Killer 1550 allows you to upgrade to up to 1.73 Gb/s max throughput for even more high-speed gaming, and prioritizes network traffic and data streaming with Killer DoubleShot Pro.
One Port Does It All
Access a variety of port options with the Thunderbolt 3 port. Its USB Type-C interface supports data transfer speeds of up to 40 Gb/s using Thunderbolt 3, 10 Gb/s using USB 3.1 Gen 2, and external displays using the DisplayPort 1.3 protocol.

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.
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.
