- June 28, 2017
Half Christmas is here and we’ve got a present for you.
Ok, technically Half Christmas was June 25, but today, June 27, our Alienware 15 laptop with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 with Max-Q design became available for purchase in the U.S. for $2,499.
Alienware’s adoption of Max-Q technology provides the highest performance possible in a 15.6” notebook, while lowering the power consumption to 110 watts, and continuing our tradition of designing outstanding products tailored specifically for gamers.
While Max-Q design is engineered for a thin gaming laptop, our design team’s focus on what our customers want means we didn’t change the basic form factor of the Alienware 15 for Max-Q.
“We’ll go as thin as we feel comfortable,” Director of PC Product Planning Joe Olmsted told CNET recently. “We weigh those tradeoffs a lot, and gamers would prefer a good full deep-dished keyboard.”
So we will continue to provide uncompromised gaming experience with a premium keyboard and thermals on Alienware 15 that allows for higher wattage and greater performance. Just what sort of performance are we talking? Here are the results of our testing:
Alienware 15 notebooks with Max-Q technology will offer the highest total graphics power (TGP) available (110W) while continuing to offer outstanding features that gamers appreciate including:
So if you’re ready for new performance never before possible in Alienware 15. Future graphics, memory and storage upgradability are important to you. And, you would like a laptop design that insures your fingertips won’t burn as your game heats up.
Then Merry Half Christmas to you!
