ALIENWARE m17 GAMING LAPTOP

Sorry, this item is not available anymore for purchase online. Please see our recommended replacement product.

Operating System

Available with Windows 10 Home or Windows 10 Pro: Gaming is better than ever on Windows 10, with games in 4K, DirectX 12 and gameplay streaming.*

A NEW LEGEND IS BORN

At minimum 2.5kg and up to 22.0mm thin frame, the Alienware m17 combines laptop portability with maximum performance graphics. For gamers who are looking to prioritize performance without sacrificing thinness, the m17's premium magnesium alloy materials deliver weight savings while reducing thickness. This generation of the Alienware m17 includes an improved surface coating engineered to reduce fingerprint smearing and other typical stains without changing the hue or color. This stain resistant solution is a High Performance Clear Coat – a formula that lets you feel the cold and durable magnesium-alloy within our award-winning high-contrast color strategy. Available in Lunar Light.

Power reborn: With up to 10th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processors enabling up to 6-cores and 12-threads of multi-threaded performance, the Alienware m17 goes beyond its predecessor.
ADVANCED ALIENWARE CRYO-TECH

ADVANCED ALIENWARE CRYO-TECH

Advanced Alienware Cryo-Tech, is an engineering approach where an Alienware system’s gaming performance is never compromised by means of electrical and mechanical methods while maintaining system stability during the highest performance states. This is managed using methods, not limited to, heat dissipation through creative thermal module designs, fan and fan motor design, as well as exhaust and intake layouts and overall airflow impedance. In addition, the m17 offers improved airflow by directly channeling the cooler air onto the most sensitive cores of the system with 66mm diameter fan blades with 53% more CPU fan blades and 25% more GPU fan blades.

With all the latest engineering enhancements, you can expect increased power efficiency and higher speeds for longer sustained periods. Here’s a closer look at our innovative cooling solution:

Vapor Chamber Technology: Alienware’s new Vapor Chamber Technology uses advanced methods to efficiently dissipate heat. The Alienware m17 is engineered with a dedicated vapor chamber in between the CPU and copper heat pipes. It's all designed to manage the thermal flow and maximize performance. These chambers utilize the phase-changing nature of liquid to transfer heat more effectively than a solid piece of metal or copper heat pipes. Vapor Chambers are also more versatile than copper heat pipes in that they can be designed to be spread evenly across an entire chip that needs to be cooled. These CPU vapor chambers are only available in configurations that feature NVIDIA GeForce RTX and GTX graphics (GPUs).

Dual-intake, dual-exhaust airflow design: Our thin and light chassis prioritizes performance with a dual fan design that pulls in cool air from the top and bottom vents, and exhales exhaust out the rear and side vents for optimal cooling of the core components. 

High voltage driving fan: The fire resistant, Kevlar-like liquid-crystal polymer fan blades include sleeve bearings, and 3-phase fan control to create less friction and circulate air more efficiently. There are now 132 unique fan blades to cool both the CPU and GPU.

Load-balancing heat pipes: The dynamics of thermal activity across critical components like the GPU and the CPU are intelligently discharged across four 3.5mm diameter copper-composite heat pipes. 

Dense copper fin stacks: The m17 has the greatest amount of copper material by weight than the previous m17 by 35% and provides more heat dissipation to core components than the previous m17. The m17 has also increased the size of its heat pipes by 40% to increase overall surface area and heat dissipation.
HYPEREFFICIENT VOLTAGE REGULATION

HYPEREFFICIENT VOLTAGE REGULATION

The graphics side story: An industry first, the m17 features unparalleled 12-phase graphics voltage regulation on configurations featuring the NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX 2070 SUPER™ to enable the highest performance possible for the longest time ever possible.

The processor story: Achieve up to 6-phase voltage regulation on configurations with a NVIDIA GeForce graphics card for higher performance gaming for longer periods of time. And with 25% larger CPU inductors, top-end performance is increased even further.

UNPARALLELED DISPLAY TECHNOLOGIES

UNPARALLELED DISPLAY TECHNOLOGIES

Bring the game to life: Experience WVA UHD 4K 25ms 500 nits UHD panel option with 100% Adobe RGB color gamut on a 17.3" platform. It offers the highest contrast ratio on the Alienware m17 with 1500:1 and provides the best color gamut of Adobe RGB 100%. Featuring a slow 25ms response time and 60Hz. Ideal for gamers that prioritize high resolution and vibrant colors over speed.
GAME-ENHANCING FEATURES

GAME-ENHANCING FEATURES

Triple SSDs: The Alienware m17 offers optional RAID 0 triple SSD configurations. This means the two drives are recognized as a single large drive, maximizing transfer rates and enabling maximum storage and performance.

Rapid connectivity: Killer Doubleshot™ Pro technology enables intelligent management of internet traffic by using both the wired and wireless connections in tandem to prioritize packets. Killer technology will automatically identify latency sensitive gaming and voice traffic and send it over the fastest interface. This new technology is made possible by combining Killer 2.5Gbps E3000 Wired Networking with Killer™ Wi-Fi 6 AX1650 (2x2) 802.11ax Wireless and Bluetooth 5.1

INTUITIVE IMMERSION

Ready for everything: Expand your world with our newly added media card reader. The new slot uses a push-push Micro-SD slot supporting UHS-II HD312 media.

Improved keyboard: The incredibly responsive keyboard features 1.7mm travel with RGB per-key Alien FX lighting, N-Key rollover and anti-ghosting technology.

Premium touchpad: A precision-point glass touchpad provides a high-quality gaming experience you can feel.
ADVANCED EYE TRACKING

ADVANCED EYE TRACKING

Next-gen Tobii eye tracking adds a completely new form of immersion to your game. Smaller sensors with wake capabilities enable features and sensitivity to track head pose, presence, fine gaze and eye position. *

Enhanced interactions: UI elements fade when not making eye contact so you can get deeper into the game. Characters know when you’re looking at them and will respond accordingly.

New tracking tools: Learn, train and improve using eye tracking-enabled tools designed to measure your mini map awareness and help you learn when to pay attention to the clock.

Software support: Show viewers where you’re looking while streaming your favorite game. Tobii Ghost software supports all major streaming platforms and software.

Twitch-ready: Toggle between visualizations like heatmaps, shadow, and spotlight using our extension. You no longer need to move your mouse to show viewers what you’re talking about, just glance at it.
