 Product Description

General Features

Up to 32GB RAM

The memory can be upgraded to 32GB using a 16GB module in each of the 260-pin SO-DIMM slots.

Internal Storage Upgrades

The system's internal storage can be upgraded or added to, as there are three M.2 SSD slots (one 2242 for SATA III & NVMe PCIe, one 2280 for SATA III & NVMe PCIe, and one 2280 for NVMe PCIe), as well as one 2.5" SATA III drive bay.

IPS Display

Built with an IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel, the display will provide you with wide 140°viewing angles and vivid colors for an immersive viewing experience.

Thunderbolt 3

Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB 3.1 at up to 10 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2 allows you to connect up to two 4K displays simultaneously. Additionally, you can daisy chain up to six devices from a single Thunderbolt 3 port.

Designed for VR

Dive into mind-bending virtual reality experiences with a VR-ready system that passes the Oculus-ready and Vive-optimized certifications. Powered by NVIDIA VRWorks technology, a level of presence is achieved by bringing physically realistic visuals, sound, touch interactions, and simulated environments to virtual reality. And with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card, the Alienware 17 delivers smooth VR performance.

HDMI 7.1-Channel Audio

The HDMI 2.0 port can output 7.1-channel digital audio.

Alienware TactX Keyboard

With an upgraded Alienware TactX keyboard, N-key rollover is now supported, enabling over 108-key commands for more actions per minute, and 2.2mm of key travel allows for rapid keystroke responses. Plus, it's reinforced with a steel backplate for rigidity and uniform feedback and a life of up to 10 million keystrokes.

AlienFX Lighting

Create a more personalized look for your machine with AlienFX lighting. This RGB/LED-enabled lighting is supported on over 130 games with the option to create and download unique themes. AlienFX lighting features 4-zone, multi-color RGB keyboard with lighting controls.

Hinge-Forward Design

A hinge-forward design brings the thermal shelf to the rear, enabling a variety of improved benefits, such as a thinner overall design while increasing performance, improved ventilation, higher quality sound, and external ports organization.

Designed to Keep Cool

A higher maximum thermal design power (TDP) support means that your system can handle a higher total wattage for internal components, enabling a higher level of performance. With the entire ventilation system upgraded, your system can stay cool even under extreme graphics pressure.

Hear Every Battle Cry

Due to the upgraded design, a larger and more effective speaker box has been installed, improving audio output for a clearer and more dramatic gaming experience.

Clear the Desktop and the Board

Avoid excess cables and embrace the "desktop mode" design, where most of your critical connections and ports are in the back and out of the way.

Killer Wireless

Killer DoubleShot Pro provides a wired and wireless networking setup that prioritizes internet traffic and data streams to the applications most important to you.

Alienware Graphics Amplifier Port

The Alienware Graphics Amplifier can be connected to this port and enables future-proofing of upgradeable full-length, dual-wide graphics and additional 4-port USB 3.1 Gen 1 hub for added peripherals. With a dedicated PCIe x4 Gen 3 with up to 40 Gb/s throughout, you won't have to worry about the disadvantages that come with a shared connection. Please note that the Alienware Graphics Amplifier is sold separately.

Battery Life

The Alienware 17 contains a lithium 6-cell / 99Wh battery.

Build Quality

The Alienware 17 uses premium materials to deliver high-performance gaming technology. Utilizing magnesium alloy for rigidity, copper for improved performance, anodized aluminum for extra protection, and steel for tactile comfort, it features a high-quality design for high-performance gaming.

Experience the Full Spectrum

AlienFX uses 20 different colors to create over 80 quadrillion unique themes to give your machine a more personalized look. Supported on over 130 titles, lighting zones can be customized to react to things like in-game actions, powering on and off, and notifications by pulsing, morphing, or simply holding a solid color. Once you've finished your theme, you can save and upload it to the Alienware Arena community site where you can share your custom creation with others and download any you find. And for times when you want a little less visual stimulation, AlienFX allows you to "go dark" by disabling all lighting effects until you're ready to turn them back on.
