Dell has announced the newest member to their gaming laptops, the Alienware 13 Gaming Laptop. With a screen size of just 13 inches, it will be the smallest in the line-up. It weighs only 2.04Kg and is less then an inch thick. To be able to keep up with gaming demands, it features either the Intel ultra-low-voltage i5’s or i7’s CPU’s and up to the Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M GPU.
Optically it looks like the other Alienware laptops, just a bit smaller. Perhaps an reaction to the slim Razer Blade gaming laptops. By decreasing the screen size 1 inch, Dell managed to cut away 900 gram of weight and 19 mm of the thickness. Of course newer technology also helps.
The Alienware 13 will offer a wider variety of customization, for example the choice of 1366 x 768, 1920 x 1080, 2560 x 1440, 3200 x 1800, touch panel options. It’s being launched with Haswell, but Broadwell intentions have been signalled.
Both Engadget and PCMag have had their hands on this device already, but everyone else will have to wait until it’s launched in November. I’m sure more details will emerge before, they always do, so stay tuned.
