Features

Operating System

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

CONSIDER THE GAME CHANGED

The Alienware Area-51m is unlike any mobile gaming machine ever created. With unprecedented desktop-level processing power, CPU and GPU upgradability, advanced cooling and a premium, revolutionary design, a true desktop-gaming experience is now available in the form of a laptop.

DESKTOP POWER PACKED INTO A LAPTOP

The Area-51m features a host of firsts for peak performance and power. It’s our first-ever Alienware laptop to feature 8-core, 16-thread Intel® processors, giving it a whole new level of compute power versus other gaming laptops. Engineered with desktop processors, the CPU is enabled with up to 125% rated power, allowing high-end overclocking. This results in higher performance for megatasking, CPU-intensive gaming, as well as day-to-day applications.

Lose yourself in vivid, uninterrupted gaming thanks to NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ graphics with full-throttle power and up to 30W of overclocking headroom—all on an immersive 144Hz G-SYNC 17" Full HD display. Users can overclock their settings via the new Alienware Command Center.

The Area-51m is also our first-ever Alienware laptop to support up to 64GB of DDR4 memory, ensuring you have enough RAM for even the most performance-intensive tasks.
alienware-17-area51m-laptop-unprecedented

UNPRECEDENTED UPGRADEABILITY

Gamers have made it clear that they’ve noticed a lack of CPU and GPU upgradability in gaming laptops.

The Area-51m was engineered with this in mind, finally allowing gamers to harness power comparable to even the highest-performance desktop, and taking advantage of latest technologies from NVIDIA® such as ray tracing, DLSS, and AI enhanced graphics.

CPU upgrades can be done using standard desktop-class processors, while GPU upgrades can be done via onboard graphics module replacement or with the Alienware Graphics Amplifier.

ADVANCED ALIENWARE CRYO-TECH COOLING

Our thermal technology, Advanced Alienware Cryo-Tech v2.0, optimizes component cooling, which maximizes overall performance and keeps your laptop cool to the touch. Here’s a closer look at our innovative cooling solution.

Dual-Intake, Dual-Exhaust Airflow Design: The Area-51m chassis prioritizes performance with a dual fan design that pulls in cool air from the bottom and top vents, while exhaling exhaust out the rear and side vents for optimal core component cooling. (The Intel® Core™ i7-8700 with NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2060 configuration does not have a side-exhaust)

High Voltage Driving Fan: The fire resistant, liquid-crystal polymer fan is built with 0.2mm blades, sleeve bearings and 3-phase fan control to create less friction and circulate air more efficiently. The Area-51m fans occupy an area of 95x105mm with a thickness ranging from 19mm to 21.5mm and can push over 25 CFM in open air conditions—something normally seen only in desktops.

Load-balancing Heat Pipes: The dynamics of thermal activity across critical components like the GPU and the CPU are intelligently discharged across various dedicated and shared 8mm and 6mm copper-composite heat pipes.The highest-end configurations carry 7 total heat pipes.

Copper Fin Stacks: The Area-51m features best-in-class surface temperatures, largely due to a thermal module, including four 0.15mm copper fins.Heat is drawn away from the most critical components to prioritize system performance and longevity.

Thermal Control: Cryo-Tech v2.0 ensures that 100% of the system's GPU thermal design power is enabled, while also ensuring CPU-intensive games benefit from high performance.

Whisper-quiet:  The cooling system of the Area-51m is so powerful, virtually no noise is heard while engaged in daily tasks.

ICONIC DESIGN WITH A MODERN EDGE

The Alienware Area-51m raises the bar for innovative engineering with its game-changing design. The new visual ID was inspired by our early industrial designs, marking a return to form while taking cues from our original roots.

The new futuristic design of the Area-51m reflects the diverse, evolving nature of gamers everywhere, incorporating high contrast, performance-focused engineering with blended bone lines, angled sections, bold lighting, and celebrated thermals.

Bold lighting: The latest evolution of AlienFX lighting features a striking ring of light at the rear of the system, highlighting system performance while maintaining ultimate customizability.

Narrow bezel: The Area-51m features a drastic reduction of screen borders thanks to its narrow bezel with a three-knuckle hinge. This reduces the mass and maintains a strong connection to the base.

Honeycomb design: The new thermal pattern features hexagonal vents for an enhanced airflow with a 47% improvement rate from previous designs, enabling higher performance while keeping your system cool.

Premium shell: The unique magnesium alloy exoskeleton enables enhanced rigidity, while reducing overall chassis weight. This allows more space for high-performance components inside the machine.

Dual color options: Gamers can choose between a new, futuristic look in Lunar Light or Dark Side of the Moon, a darker, more traditional appearance.

The TactX keyboard also features a steel back plate which offers improved rigidity and uniform feedback while typing across all keys for an enhanced experience that guarantees up to 10 million keystrokes.

2.5Gbps Ethernet: The Area-51m is our first-ever system to feature a 2.5Gbps bandwidth Ethernet connection, giving gamers 2.5x the amount of common wired Ethernet connections for blazing-fast file transfers through Killer E3000 ethernet port.

Thunderbolt™ Type-C port: This multi-use port is ready to be used as a USB 3.1 port, offering 10Gbps of data transfer, a Thunderbolt™ connection capable of 40Gbps, or even a DisplayPort enabling various monitors supporting the DisplayPort protocol.

Exceptional battery life: Up to a 90Wh battery delivers longer uninterrupted gameplay.
