Cutting-edge-craftsmanship

Cutting edge craftsmanship.

Carbon fiber craftsmanship: Inspired by aerospace technologies, the carbon fiber composites in Alienware laptops deliver a unique rigidity and high stiffness-to-weight ratio. The result is a whole new tactile experience.

Sleek. Solid. Aluminum.: Displays this good require serious protection, so we encased them in an anodized aluminum shell that matches the hinge strength and structural rigidity and boasts a new, iconic design.

Cooler with copper: Churn out maximum power while keeping your cool. Copper thermal modules allow your graphics cards and processors to perform at the highest level while the heat pipes and blocks prevent overheating.

Guaranteed up to 10 million keystrokes: Experience the sensation of uniform feedback with the reinforced steel plate of our TactX keyboard, which also protects internal components from debris. Launch shortcuts to applications or even macros in-game, thanks to five customizable keys capable of up to 15 unique commands, programmed via the Alienware Command Center software.

Rigorously tested for robust durability: Alienware laptops are tested to stand up to tens of thousands of functions : power button pushes, hinges opening and closing, twists, turns, and up to 1 million touchpad strokes. We test hard so you can game hard, reliably.
Engineered for extreme action.

Engineered for extreme action.

Intense inside: With the latest generation Intel® processor for truly intense action, the Alienware 15 is equipped for a seamless gaming experience. Intel® offers the only processors that allow you to hyper thread so your machine will run as eight virtual cores, powering through in parallel.

Dynamic overclocking: Alienware 15 automatically overclocks and monitors internal temperatures to keep your system running cool when the action is hot and deliver performance precisely when you need it.

Newer, faster, better: Performance gets a massive shot in the arm with the introduction of new PCIe SSDs in Alienware 15. Capable of up to 5.3 times the bandwidth of previous generation SATA SSDs, games, media and everything else you loves loads faster, and gets you into the action sooner.

DDR3 memory: Alienware 15 supports DDR3 running at 1600MHz and has overclock potential via the BIOS, so you have the opportunity to crank out maximum performance.

Mobility meets connectivity: Hook up your favorite accessories with the new superfast USB Type-C™ port, offering speeds 2x as fast as USB 3.0 with SuperSpeed USB 10Gbps (USB 3.1).

Blow your hair back: Use your USB Type- C™ port as a Thunderbolt™ 3 port, and experience 40Gbps (4x the USB 3.1 protocol) or drive 4K displays as if the port were a Thunderbolt™ or DisplayPort. Or maximize your options by daisychaining your Thunderbolt™ devices together.
