Dell unveils new range of computers
Dell’s acquisition of Alienware all those years ago does not seem to have hampered the latter’s build quality and performance, as the company has just announced a new range of Alienware computers that will satisfy most, if not all who are into the world of high performance computers. In fact, the new fleet of high performance gaming machines from Alienware will comprise of four factory overclocked liquid-cooled desktop systems as well as what is touted to be “the most powerful 15″ gaming laptop” in the universe – no wonder aliens from Jupiter can’t contact us – they don’t have the technology to do so! Built by Dell and Alienware teams, these new machines will sport the latest technologies, aggressive designs and unmatched customization and personalization. We’ll take a brief look at each of these machines right after the jump.
Alienware M15x – The most powerful 15″ gaming laptop in the universe, where it will feature a mobile Core i7 processor that debuted recently, accompanied by a 1GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260M GPU and is able to carry up to 8GB DDR3 1333MHz memory. With those specifications, you’re able to crank out framerates on the go like nobody’s business – just make sure to remain within reach of a power outlet if you plan to get plenty of gaming time in on your travels. Prices start from $1,499 upwards.
As for the Alienware Aurora and Aurora ALX, the former is the most upgradeable Aurora to date while the latter is the most powerful MicroATX desktop from the Alienware stable ever. Both of them will be powered by the new Intel Core i7 processor, where you can opt for the Extreme Edition 3.6GHz overclocked processor if you have the dough. Features include dual 1GB ATI Radeon HD 5870 graphics cards, up to 24GB DDR3 1333MHz memory or 12GB DDR3 1600MHz memory and a maximum of 2TB of hard drive storage space. Despite cramming all that in, you will see that they’re pretty happy in a compact, MicroATX chassis with prices starting from $1,299 upwards.
