  • New things from Dell: Tablets, phones, laptops

    Not to be left out of the deluge of new releases at CES, Dell is giving us a look at their new 5-inch tablet concept and Android-smartphone for AT&T. There’s also some new laptops and things, you know, if you’re into that. Read More

  • Steam to come pre-installed on Alienware PCs

    After a clean OS install, Steam is the third thing I load on the PC, after only Chrome and Photoshop. It has became the center of my gaming life and now Dell has worked a dell with the company to have the digital delivery manager pre-installed on all Alienware systems. Just think, Steam is non-spyware or bloatware software pack that will probably be installed on the Alienware rig anyway. Read More

  • Review: Alienware M17x gaming laptop

    Short Version: Billed by Alienware as “the most powerful laptop in the universe,” the M17x is simply an amazing piece of hardware. It combines the latest in hardware with an extremely high-quality finish to create a laptop that is incredibly fast and well-designed. Unfortunately, it also might be the most expensive laptop in the universe. Read More

  • Alienware Aurora ALX announced, melts faces with speed

  • Tokyo Game Show: How Resident Evil 5 looks on an Alienware PC (video)

    Alienware announced yesterday they will “shake the gaming world to its foundation” at the Tokyo Game Show 2009. Well, the show started today, I went there and played Resident Evil 5 (and a bunch of other titles, for example Streetfighter 4) on Alienware hardware. I’m not sure if the gaming world is really that different when compared to yesterday, but all the games did look… Read More

  • Alienware turns to Intel Core i7 CPUs for new M15x notebook, desktops

    Alienware said that it was going to “shake the gaming world to its foundation” this week at the Tokyo Game Show. I don’t know if these new rigs really do all that, but they are impressive enough. Read More

    Well, that’s no fun. We just posted the Alienware teaser this morning that states the company was going to introduce new kits at the Tokyo Game Show and the systems have already leaked. Read More

  • Alienware to "shake the gaming world to its foundation" at the Tokyo Game Show

    There are few companies that can actually fulfill a statement as commanding as “to shake the gaming world to its foundation.” I believe Alienware is one of them. The company has pushed the high-performance gaming envelope for as long as it has been around. If Alienware says that they have something special, I’m inclined to believe it. But what the hell is coming? Read More

  • Alienware unleashes a new mouse and keyboard for gamers

    Gamers have it made nowadays. In the old days, they would have to deal with computer peripherals that were meant for an office environment and not tailored to meet their gaming needs. But that’s changed. Now even Alienware has a line of gaming accessories. Previously, Alienware showed off the OptX LCD monitor and TactX Headset, but apparently there is a TactX keyboard and TactX mouse… Read More

  • Introducing the Alienware TactX Headset

    It looks like Dell is expanding the Alienware brand. First there was the OptX AW2210 monitor and now the TactX Headset. Judging by the specs of 16 Hz – 16kHz and -38 dB, it’s your standard gaming headset. That doesn’t mean there aren’t a couple of cool features. Read More

  • The Alienware OptX AW2210 21.5-inch LCD monitor – Hadoken!

    Dell’s prepped a killer 1080p monitor that should be great for gaming. Well, it should be. The OptX AW2210 is afterall an Alienware product. (read: it’s overpriced, but loaded)

  • Attack of the 43-inch curved screens

    Am I crazy, or did NEC and Alienware just unveil the same thing? Alienware’s original curved monitor, which we saw at CES last year, had some issues which have since been resolved, but was their hand forced by NEC’s announcement? At $8000 the NEC one isn’t going to be making into a lot of homes, but is this one any different? Well, it’s made by Ostendo and… Read More

  • Alienware debuts the allpowerful M17x

    Wow, it seems that someone over at PCWorld.com couldn’t keep their mouth shut and announced the Alienware M17x a bit early. No matter, the most important thing is that you see what this baby has under the hood. It’s damn impressive and certainly allpowerful. Read More

  • Alienware Allpowerful notebook teased in a riddle

    Get ready to meet your maker. Alienware‘s Allpowerful (that’s the codename) will decimate everything in its path and leave nothing but trembling subjects in the wake. This monstrosity is more than a desktop replacement. It’s so big, it could be the desk. Trust us, we’ve seen and played with the beast. Alienware isn’t ready to release it yet, but this riddle… Read More

  • Alienware teases at a new laptop line

    ALLPOWERFUL! Alienware is teasing a new laptop line with some sort of alien head and some weird alien language. We suspect they’ll be launching this in June, probably in time for E3. Until then, stare into the head. Stare into the head. Read More

  • Review: Alienware M17 notebook


    When you hear the name Alienware, most people think of a high-end machine with some funky styling and a premium price. Alienware is trying to shake this image, however, and they are taking a giant step in that direction with the new M17 notebook. Read More

  • Alienware Black Friday: $200 off m17x gaming notebook


    Well, this is a great deal… if you were in the market for a gaming notebook, which I suspect not too many people are. Which is probably why Alienware is pushing them like they’re HD-DVD players in January of ’08. Still, a solid gaming machine is a good machine in most every aspect, so if you’re looking for something quick, well-equipeed, and likely heavy, they start… Read More

  • Core i7 hitting Dells, Alienwares, Gateways


    Those big packages from Intel must have arrived at all the custom prebuilt computer sites, because all of a sudden they’re all making a racket about how their latest setups rock the new Core i7s like a hurricane: Dell has them in their XPS 730x starting today at $2K Alienware has them in the X-58 series starting at $1650 (or $3700, your choice) Gateway has them in the 6800 series… Read More

  • A full Alienware rig for a grand? Can it be?


    Looks like Alienware is sensitive to the needs of country. In these times, when the only people who can afford top-shelf parts are AIG executives, we need an option that doesn’t break the bank, yet can pull down 50fps in Far Cry 2. Alienware may be little more than a Dell organ now, but they still make good computers, and if you’re looking for something premade with a little… Read More

  • Alienware M17: When a 17-inch laptop outperforms your desktop (for a price)

    Dell-owned Alienware has released another gaming laptop that might interest some of you. It’s the M17, and it has that quad-core mobile processor, the Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9300. It also has CrossFireX, which is AMD’s fancy name for dual GPUs. As such, with two Mobility Radeons HD 3870, video memory goes up to 1GB. That’s quite a bit, and maybe just enough to get Crysis… Read More
