The powerhouse Alienware Area 51M R2 17.3 inch Laptop gives you cutting-edge gaming, design and editing.

Perfect for serious gamers, graphic designers and video editors!

The deluxe 17.3 inch screen has a 1920 x 1080 resolution, plus support from 8GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2080 Super Graphics to ensure all your games, movies and graphic design projects look incredible too, with stunning detail and beautifully smooth motion regardless of how hectic the action gets. The 144Hz panel also features 72% colour gamut, 300-nit brightness and Eyesafe® technology. 

Thanks to a 10-core 10th Gen Intel® Core™ i9-10900K CPU (3.7GHz base speed up to 5.3GHz) and 16GB DDR4 2933MHz RAM, this is also a seriously powerful laptop. A 512GB Solid State Drive provides a super-fast boot-up and screen load every time you lift the lid, a 1TB (1000GB) hard drive offers plenty of extra storage space.

Next-gen Tobii eye tracking adds a completely new form of immersion to your game. Smaller sensors with wake capabilities enable features and sensitivity to track head pose, presence, fine gaze and eye position.

Built with a premium magnesium alloy chassis, the lightest structural metal in the world, the Alienware M15 is meticulously designed for a performance-driven user experience.

We love the clever Alienware Cryo-Tech v3.0 technology that optimises component cooling, while maximising overall performance, with a 10% diameter increase in the CPU fan blades and 20% diameter increase in the GPU fan blades. Alienware Command Centre software also makes it easy to fine-tune all your game and systems settings, with intuitive overclocking options and all-new AlienFX settings.
