Dell has launched three Alienware gaming hardware laptops to the local ICT channel: the Alienware Area-51m and Alienware m15 and m17.

All three are available from official Alienware distributor Drive Control Corporation (DCC).

Alienware-51M is the world’s first upgradeable gaming laptop and the first to feature Alienware’s new Legend design.

The Area-51m is currently the only laptop with 9th Gen 8-core desktop processors, 64Gb2 of memory and 2,5Gbps Ethernet technology. Importantly, most of the Alienware-51m is upgradeable; the CPU, RAM, storage and GPU.

The 17-inch Alienware Area-51m’s features a 144HZ narrow-bezel display with cutting-edge thermal and cooling technology. Also, Area-51m is packed with an array of gaming must-haves including the Tobii eye-tracking technology which sits below the display and the latest Alienware Command Centre.

Alienware Area-51m features the Alienware Legend’s new brand identity and design:

  • Thermal and cooling technology to achieve and sustain overclocking power;
  • Improved AlienFX lighting, ultra-thin screen borders;
  • A new “three-knuckle hinge” design that reduces the overall dimension while creating a stronger assembly, all combining to yield the ultimate gaming experience; and
  • Two optional finishes, Dark Side of the Moon and Lunar Light, more ways for gamers to stand out from the competition.
