From the manufacturer
Deliberately Slim. Decidedly Savage
Survival of the thinnest: Defeat every opponent with a machine that’s engineered to be our thinnest and lightest 17” gaming notebooks yet. Manufactured with strict build tolerances and high-end materials, it ensures optimal performance without ever sacrificing power.
Bigger visuals: The m17 is designed for total immersion and maximum portability, with a larger 17.3 display to take you even deeper in the game.
Gaming at a premium: Built with high-end industrial materials like magnesium alloy, one of the lightest structural metals in the world, the Alienware m17 is meticulously designed for a performance-driven user experience. Magnesium alloy improves rigidity, steel ensures tactile comfort and copper in the thermal module keeps the graphics and processor cool.
Kick performance into high gear: Engineered with 8th Generation Intel Core i7-8750H processor, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q Design with 8GB GDDR6 graphics, and 16GB of 2666Mhz DDR4 memory, the Alienware m17 possesses powerful performance for uninterrupted gameplay and other activities.
No shortage of storage: Experience faster load times and a quieter system thanks to storage including an 512GB PCIe M.2 SSD.
Seamless graphics: Smooth fast-motion graphics are crucial when the pressure is high. That’s why we created a stunning and immersive in-game experience with an FHD (1920 x 1080) display and a refresh rate of 60Hz, for incredibly high frame rates.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070
The powerful new GeForce RTX 2070 takes advantage of the cutting-edge NVIDIA Turing architecture to immerse you in incredible realism and performance in the latest games. The future of gaming starts here. When it comes to next-gen gaming, it’s all about realism. GeForce RTX 2070 is light years ahead of other cards, delivering truly unique real-time ray-tracing technologies for cutting-edge, hyper-realistic graphics.
Tools Gamers Need
Make your presence felt: A front-facing integrated camera offers FHD resolution for incredible clarity. Emphasize every battle cry with dual-array microphones featuring speech support from Windows Cortana.
Killer Networking: Killer E2500, Gigabit Ethernet Controller, is designed to deliver incredible throughput and lower latency gameplay, heavily reducing any lagging or jitter. Killer Wireless-AC 1550 allows you to upgrade up to 1.73 Gbps max throughput for even more high-speed gaming, and prioritizes internet traffic and data streaming with Killer DoubleShot Pro.
Alienware Cryo-Tech V2.0
Dual-Intake, Dual-Exhaust Airflow Design: Our thin and light 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 cooling of the core components.
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. Additionally, the Alienware m17 has 60% larger fan-blades on the graphics-side fan than on Alienware m15.
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.
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 with high-performance.
Alienware Command Center
Calibrate your controls:
Now you have control over your hardware and software environments. Not only can you tailor the hardware for each and every game you play, you can personalize the space and setup to make your software look and feel precisely the way you want it, without interfering with your gameplay or other activities.
Ace library science:
The easy-to-use interface links all your various system settings with a gaming library, making it simple to access gaming information. No matter what the source, the command center gives you easy access to your games and the ability to fine-tune settings for each one.
