Features & Design

With Windows 8.1 — for a smooth, versatile PC experience.
Alienware 18
Performs like no other!
The Alienware 18 is a monster gaming powerhouse. Every detail is engineered to give you the most intense experience possible.

Connect and conquer
A built-in Killer Gigabit Ethernet NIC identifies and prioritizes your network traffic so latency-sensitive streams that require maximum speed, like games or video chat, are prioritized over less-important traffic. See which applications are hogging your bandwidth and limit them using Visual Bandwidth Control™ so they don’t interfere with your games. Or go wireless with a Broadcom 5G WiFi adapter for faster speeds, better range and improved battery life.
Alienware 18
