Four powerful configurations: Choose from multiple Alienware Alpha options — detailed in the Configurations tab — ranging up to Intel® Quad-Core™ i7 processor power, a custom NVIDIA Maxwell GTX graphics with 2GB GDDR5 memory, 8GB RAM and 2TB* of hard drive space. Each configuration comes with a dual-band AC wireless card for prioritized wireless network connectivity and increased range.

More than A Gaming Console: Alpha takes you where other consoles can’t; plug in a keyboard and mouse and transform your Alpha into a fully functional Windows 8 PC.

Upgrades welcome: The Alienware Alpha is user-accessible, so you can feel free to upgrade the CPU and RAM for better in-game performance and background application multitasking and add hard drive space to store more games.
