Packed with power. Made to move.
This 43.9 cm (17.3") laptop combines powerful performance and incredible graphics into a revolutionary new design — perfect for immersive gaming.

Cutting-edge design
The durable anodised aluminium shell, reinforced by a magnesium-alloy frame, protects your LCD and the internal components. Angled front and side walls give the Alienware 17 an elite and stealth look. And it's designed for maximum performance, with a rear GPU/CPU exhaust vent to manage heat generated inside the system.

Unleash the power
Alienware 17 is powerful inside and out - it's packed with new technology for maximum performance. With optional 4th-Generation Intel® Core™ i7 Quad Core overclocked processors, you get the speed, power and performance that you need to lead in everything that you do. And the 8-cell battery means that you can cram more action into a single charge.

Perform at your peak
Get the competitive edge with optional NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 780M with 4GB GDDR5 graphics memory. Turn on lightning-fast FXAA anti-aliasing for the ultimate combination of image quality and performance. NVIDIA® Adaptive Vertical Sync prevents image tearing and NVIDIA® PhysX brings your games to life with dynamic, interactive environments.

Pump up your audio experience
Powered by Klipsch® Speakers: Your Alienware 17 is a precision-tuned, premium stereo system designed to deliver the most lifelike audio experience that you have ever heard from a laptop. Dynamic drivers provide a punchy, rich full range of sound, to give you the best gaming experience possible.

Dolby Home Theatre v4: Whether you're listening through headphones, your laptop speakers or your home cinema setup, Dolby Home Theatre v4 delivers the captivating listening experience that your games and media demand. Surround Decoder creates a virtual surround sound experience and Volume Maximiser lets you blast your audio at peak volume without noise or clipping. And Dolby Home Cinema comes with an easy-to-use interface, so that you can maintain total control over your audio settings at all times.

Connect and conquer
A built-in Killer Gigabit Ethernet NIC identifies and prioritises your network traffic so that latency-sensitive streams that require maximum speed, like games or video chat, are prioritised over less-important traffic. See which applications are hogging your bandwidth and limit them using Visual Bandwidth Control™ so that they don't interfere with your games. Or, go wireless with a Broadcom 5G WiFi adaptor for faster speeds, better range and improved battery life.

Massive storage and monster speed
Make your Alienware system a vault of games, films and music with an optional 1TB Quad Play RAID 0 solid-state drive (SSD) - that's four 256GB SSDs in a RAID 0 configuration. You get faster boot up speeds, data access times and the ability to write massive amounts of data in a flash with minimal battery life consumption or system noise.

Ultimate control. All from one place.
Change how you experience the game. The redesigned Alienware Command Centre 3.0 lets you choose lighting and special effects, accelerate your gaming performance, monitor in-game results and more - all in one hub.
