Alienware have today launched their latest gaming laptop at E3, or perhaps we should say an update to already popular model, the Alienware M17x gaming laptop has undergone a re-design and been boosted with the inclusion of the very latest powerful components to give gamers on the move a true beast of a mobile gaming machine. Their choice of an Allpowerful.com marketing campaign to promote this release is perhaps quite appropriate!
Alienware was established in 1996 and have been building high performance gaming machines to provide the best PC gaming experience possible ever since. They were then bought by Dell in March 2006 but they have remained a distinctly separate from the rest of Dell, there aren’t even any Dell branding on their PCs unlike the Dell XPS desktop gaming PCs!
One benefit of being acquired by Dell is that it’s provided the investment for expansion of the markets that their machines are available in, previously Alienware products could be bought in 6 countries, however they are now present in 35 countries – therefore you’ve got a much better chance and easier way of getting you hands on this latest Alienware M17x gaming laptop.
The Alienware M17x features a striking design, clearly some time has been spent on this – the casing is anodised aluminium with aggressive lines and a ‘one of a kind’ chassis which will definitely make a statement to your fellow gamers at a LAN party or even just down the local coffee shop catching up with your emails!
As soon as you see this new re-designed Alienware gaming laptop, you can tell where it’s come from with its unique visual styling, yet it looks suitably new and different from previous Alienware designed machines.
“The Alienware M17x is a gamer’s dream and sets the universal standard for 17-inch laptops that enthusiasts worldwide will love,” said Michael Tatelman, vice president of sales and marketing for Dell’s consumer business. “Alienware’s premium performance is critically important to the larger Dell consumer product portfolio, and our new ‘All Powerful’ branding campaign conveys the brand’s technological strength as much as Dell Adamo conveys precision craftsmanship and design.”
I personally think that the Alienware M17x looks like a great gaming laptop, not just on the outside though, just a take a look at the specifications below and you’ll see that this ‘alien beast’ of a mobile gaming machine has formidable power – it’s literally years ahead of my desktop PC that I use for my main gaming experience! It will be available in the UK for from £1699 including VAT and delivery.
