Frank Azor, general manager of Alienware and XPS said at the launch event,
“Gaming is in a time of renaissance right now; awesome games and development, amazing resolutions and technology, plus the pure excitement around VR experiences – it’s an incredible driving force and it feels similar to the energy that started Alienware 20 years ago.”
The new Alienware laptops are not only slimmer than their predecessors but also have a more efficient and well-placed deep cooling system. Alienware’s logo has also been revamped and it supports the Windows Hello feature now which helps the users in logging in the Windows using face-detection. The new Alienware laptops come with the Tobii’s eye-tracking feature supported by an external or internal(in the case of Alienware 17) Tobi camera which not only helps in controlling the camera in games but can also be used to switch on the laptop by just looking at the Alienware logo. It even helps in saving battery as the backlit keyboard automatically turns off if you aren’t looking at it.
Alienware has always set new benchmarks for laptop gaming and we expect nothing less from these new Alienware laptops. We’ll soon come up with a detailed review of these very promising laptops. Till then, stay tuned.
