The Alienware 15 has been upgraded to give gamers the tools they need to be the best.

Killer™ Wireless: Killer DoubleShot™ Pro provides a wired and wireless networking setup that prioritizes internet traffic and data stream to the applications most important to you.

Gain the advantage: Solid-state drives (SSDs) allow your game to load faster, make virtually no noise and have less failures because they have no moving parts. A quieter system means you can better pinpoint every footstep your enemy makes.

Longer battery life: The new Alienware 15 can support up to 11 hours of battery life, as tested with the 99 Whr* battery and an FHD LCD configuration.*
AlienFX
Experience the full spectrum.
AlienFX uses 20 different colors to create over 80 quadrillion unique themes to give your machine a more personalized look. Supported on over 130 titles, lighting zones can be customized to react to things like in-game actions, powering on and off and notifications by pulsing, morphing or simply holding a solid color. Once you’ve finished your theme, you can save and upload it to the Alienware Arena community site where you can share your custom creation with others and download any you find. And for times when you want a little less visual stimulation, AlienFX allows you to “go dark” by disabling all lighting effects until you’re ready to turn them back on.
Alienware Command Center
AlienFusion: The new Always Ready Mode puts your system in a state in between sleep and awake, allowing core programs to run in the background while the machine runs quietly and in a lower power mode.

AlienAdrenaline: Featuring customizable game and application options, a system performance optimizer and a performance monitoring tool, AlienAdrenaline provides users all the tools they need to keep one step ahead of the competition.

Thermal Controls: Change settings and monitor internal temperatures and speeds of certain fans within your PC using the Active Thermals module.
