Big screen. Big performance.
When paired with the optional Alienware Graphics Amplifier featuring a desktop GPU of your choice, you can transform the Alienware 17 into the ultimate at-home entertainment experience. Just plug in and get lost in the vivid display and massive performance boost of desktop-class graphics.
Amplified graphics. Advanced gaming.

Use the Alienware 17's stunning LCD screen, or plug in up to two additional monitors via the notebook's display ports, or activate as many extra monitors as the graphics cards in your Amplifier allows.
Extreme built-in graphics options: Blow-your-doors-off gaming excitement comes jam-packed into the Alienware 17 itself, too, with NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 970M or 980M graphics card options and up to 8GB of GDDR5. These are the highest class of mobile graphics cards available. Now the most graphics-rich games can be played at their quickest with support for graphics cards requiring up to a whopping 100W of mobile graphics power.
Built for intense gaming.
Lean and mean on a big screen: Enjoy IPS (in-plane switching)-based LCD technology on an expansive 17" screen that offers stunningly clear color and clarity. The Alienware 17 is available with Full HD display, or you can choose Full HD display with a touch screen option. Get up to 2560X1440 pixel density for astonishing color clarity, and extra wide viewing angles.
IPS and touch mean a more awesome display: IPS panel technology decreases lag, and provides accurate color from all viewing angles. Optional touch technology with TrueLife high-gloss display brings you closer to the action.
Your keyboard advantage: Intense gaming requires a bold keyboard, and this premium reinforced full-size keyboard is up to the task. It includes 9 Alienware TactX programmable keys, a numeric pad, 4-zone multi-color RGB AlienFX lighting and the most responsive keys in the game – providing uniform feedback across all keys when typing. Designed for precision and speed when you need it most, you can launch applications in the middle of the action with just the touch of a button.
Sound and fury: Rich, impressive audio is powered by Klipsch and Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi technology. Visually connect with comrades and competitors with a 2.0MP Full HD webcam and let the banter flow with a dual microphone array.
Supercharged gaming: The blazing Intel® Core™ i7 processor becomes overclocked when plugged into the optional Graphics Amplifier for the ultimate gaming advantage and excitement.
Keep your cool: The Alienware 17's main thermal module consists of copper heat pipes and plates set on the GPU. It features CPU-optimizing heat dissipation so your graphics card can use up as much wattage as it desires, and the chassis won't get too hot during battle.
Connect and conquer: A double-shot of the best gaming networking technology is inside with Killer Gigabit Ethernet and Killer Wireless 802.11ac WiFi — so you’re getting the smoothest possible streaming video and gaming packets when you need them most. Multitask when you need to, without any lags or lulls in the performance you crave. Plus, all Alienware 17 come with Bluetooth 4.1 technology.
