Great Resolution – And Portability – For the New Year

January is a month of new possibilities. For many of us, it begins with an ambitious list for the new year, and that’s certainly true for Alienware. As a company known for industry-leading innovation, we can celebrate past successes, like our award-winning 18” notebook and Area 51 desktop, but we prefer to toast what’s ahead.

One of the products we’re most excited about is the Alienware 13” OLED, the first gaming notebook to feature an OLED display. Debuting at CES, this is a notebook custom-designed for the mobile gamer, made possible through our partnership with Samsung. OLED technology means higher contrast and better color saturation, creating a more vibrant display with true black. Plus experience the incredible response time of 1ms (typical), 2ms (maximum), for this gaming display that’s ready to play as fast as you are – just the kind of New Year “resolution” that gamers appreciate.


We’re proud to be first-to-market with a gaming laptop featuring an OLED display, the perfect combination of performance, graphics and size for on-the-go gaming. We’re also hoping to help this awesome platform stand out in the crowd with a dark-red chassis. While we will ship an OLED offering in the existing silver chassis in the early spring, the red one is not official just yet.  

With your help, though, maybe we can make it happen; if you want to get this head-turning design please ‘like’ or comment on this blog. Keep an eye peeled this week at #CES2016 and tweet/RT @Alienware with #OLEDinRED to help us make it happen! While the official specs and price will be announced soon, we can tell you the Alienware 13 OLED will be comparable to the existing Alienware 13 configurations in look and price.

For everyone who appreciates a more immersive, realistic and portable gaming experience, there’s awesome news on the horizon in 2016. Resolve to be good to your gaming self.
