When paired with the optional Alienware Graphics Amplifier featuring a desktop GPU of your choice, you can transform the Alienware 17 into the ultimate at-home entertainment experience. Just plug in and get lost in the vivid display and massive performance boost of desktop-class graphics.
Built for intense gaming
Lean and mean on a big screen: Enjoy IPS (in-plane switching)-based LCD technology on an expansive 17" screen that offers stunningly clear color and clarity. The Alienware 17 is available with Full HD display, or you can choose Full HD display with a touch screen option. Get up to 1920x1080 pixel density for astonishing color clarity, and extra wide viewing angles.
IPS and touch mean a more awesome display: IPS panel technology decreases lag, and provides accurate color from all viewing angles. Optional touch technology with TrueLife high-gloss display brings you closer to the action.
Your keyboard advantage: Intense gaming requires a bold keyboard, and this premium reinforced full-size keyboard is up to the task. It includes 9 Alienware TactX programmable keys, a numeric pad, 4-zone multi-color RGB AlienFX lighting and the most responsive keys in the game – providing uniform feedback across all keys when typing.
