Alienware put its big-boned laptops on a Biggest Loser diet, and the transformation is stunning.
Alienware’s beefy gaming laptops have never been known to be thin, but that’s about to change. The new Alienware m15 introduced in early October is a whopping 17 percent thinner and 30 percent smaller than the current 15-inch Alienware laptop.
Pricing of the new Alienware m15 wasn’t immediately available, but it’s likely to be in the same range as its thicker relative’s going rate. Much will depend on what’s inside when it goes on sale October 25.
What this means for you: Gaming laptops are the last bastion of hulking, fire-breathing, theoretically portable PCs. But thin is in, even with gamers, and new generations of CPU and GPU have made slimmer performance laptops possible. Alienware’s m15 is just the latest to get the Biggest Loser makeover, while maintaining a decent amount of gaming cred.
The slimmer, trimmer Alienware m15 Size is the first difference you’ll notice with the Alienware m15. While the current Alienware 15 R4 is about 15.3 x 12.0 x 1.0 inches, the new Alienware m15 is 14.3 x 10.8 x 0.8 inches—significantly trimmer all around.
