Plug in with plenty of ports
Whether you need to plug into an external display or speakers, or want to transfer movies and music, Alienware 18 has you covered with all the ports you need. Alienware 18 comes with a Killer 2200 Gigabit Ethernet port, three SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and one USB 3.0 port with PowerShare technology (allows you to charge USB devices when the computer is turned off or in standby mode), a mini display port, HDMI 1.4 output/1.3 input, 7-in-1 media card reader, an HD audio and in-line mic and headset jack and more.

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.
 
Massive storage and monster speed
Make your Alienware system a vault of games, movies and music with an optional 1TB Quad Play solid-state drive (SSD) configuration — that’s three 256GB SSDs in a RAID 0 configuration. You get faster boot speeds, data access times and the ability to write massive amounts of data in a flash with minimal battery life consumption or system noise.

Ultimate control. All from one place.

Change how you experience the game. The redesigned Alienware Command Center 3.0 lets you choose lighting and special effects, accelerate your gaming performance, monitor in-game results, and more — all in one hub.
