17-inch laptop, featuring Intel Core i7 processors, dynamic overclocking and an FHD screen. Add an optional graphics amplifier for superior graphics and gameplay.
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 latest generation Intel Core processors, 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.
When paired with the optional Alienware Graphics Amplifier featuring a desktop GPU of your choice, you can transform the Alienware 17 into the ultimate at-home entertainment experience. Just plug in and get lost in the vivid display and massive performance boost of desktop-class graphics.
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.
Extreme built-in graphics options: Blow-your-doors-off gaming excitement comes jam-packed into the Alienware 17 itself, too, with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M or 980M graphics card options and up to 4GB of GDDR5. These are the highest class of mobile graphics cards available. Now the most graphics-rich games can be played at their quickest with support for graphics cards requiring up to a whopping 100W of mobile graphics power.
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.
Guaranteed up to 10 million keystrokes: Experience the sensation of uniform feedback with the reinforced steel plate of our TactX keyboard, which also protects internal components from debris. Launch shortcuts to applications or even macros in-game, thanks to five customizable keys capable of up to 15 unique commands, programmed via the Alienware Command Center software.
Rigorously tested for robust durability: Alienware laptops are tested to stand up to tens of thousands of functions: power button pushes, hinges opening and closing, twists, turns, and up to 1 million touchpad strokes. We test hard so you can game hard, reliably.
