Big screen. Big performance.
The Alienware 17 is thinner and lighter than any 17" laptop we’ve created before, but that doesn't mean we skimped on performance. It’s crafted with aerospace-inspired carbon fiber filled surfaces that add stiffness and durability, copper heat sinks that enable proper cooling and now offering an optional Ultra HD 4K display built with IGZO (indium gallium zinc oxide) technology. Powered by high-performance 6th gen Intel® Core™ processors with Dynamic Overclocking on K-series CPUs, and offering a new USB Type-C™ port with support for SuperSpeed USB 10 Gbps (USB 3.1) and Thunderbolt™3 technologies, the Alienware 17 is designed to give you the best experience on an impressive screen.
Amplified graphics. Advanced gaming.
Plug in. Buckle up: Supercharge your at-home gaming with the optional Alienware Graphics Amplifier. Simply plug in the Alienware 17, reboot and enjoy a fully expanded desktop experience with advanced 4K NVIDIA ® or AMD- enabled graphics, multiple-monitor display and more connectivity with a built-in 4-port USB 3.0 hub.
Killer combo: Get desktop graphics performance when you pair a sleeker, space-saving Alienware 17 with the Graphics Amplifier. Place your amp out of the way and connect with a single cable for ultimate flexibility with maximum immersion.
Cutting edge craftsmanship.
Carbon fiber craftsmanship: Inspired by aerospace technologies, the carbon fiber composites in Alienware laptops deliver a unique rigidity and high stiffness-to-weight ratio. The result is a whole new tactile experience.
Sleek. Solid. Aluminum.: Displays this good require serious protection, so we encased them in an anodized aluminum shell that matches the hinge strength and structural rigidity and boasts a new, iconic design.
Cooler with copper: Churn out maximum power while keeping your cool. Copper thermal modules allow your graphics cards and processors to perform at the highest level while the heat pipes and blocks prevent overheating.
