Take a look at the new Alienware51m gaming laptop

See what the Alienware51m has to offer those looking to pick up a new gaming laptop.


This year at CES, Alienware and Dell brought their best to the show, showing off their new Alienware51m gaming laptop. Set in a stylish piece of hardware, the Alienware51m features a stunning 17-inch 1080p display with support for G-Sync and up to 144Hz. It also comes with built-in Tobii eye-tracking, up to 64 gigs of RAM, and a ton of storage operations. All of this is then packed into one of the thinnest and sleekest looking 17-inch gaming laptops that Alienware has ever made.

Those looking to pick up the new laptop can do so with plenty of configuration options, with the system offering support up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 as well as a 9th generation Intel i9 processor. This gives players everything they need to have a killer system, all without taking up the space that a desktop of the same configuration would.

The most interesting bit about the Alienware51m, though, is that the system will allow users a ton of room to upgrade and change out their configuration, including swapping out the machine’s graphics cards. The only real catch here, though, is that the new graphics card that you install has to conform to Dell’s Graphics Form Factor, which means you’ll need to wait for NVIDIA or AMD to release new cards that fit that particular format. Fortunately, you can also make use of Alienware’s external Graphics Amplifier box to provide a nice boost to your system without changing out any parts and pieces.

You can check out our video above, where we had a chance to look over the new gaming laptop, see how the different portions of the system are laid out, and even learn a bit about what makes it special compared to other gaming laptops.
