Alienware were the first manufacturers I know of to go mainstream big time with high end gaming computers. Known for there eccentric weird alien design, which by the way is what you should expect being that name is, well Alienware. Now I must admit, I'm not a fan of their overall design on their desktops and laptops, yes these are highend machines that performed well, the best hardware you can find assembled into one computer. But that design of past Alienware gaming machines was for me are a lot to be desire, big, bulky and unappealing for my taste. If you know me or have read my posts in the past, you know I love all things thin, compact, sleek and clean. The new Alienware 13 that I'm covering in this post still has that same eccentric alien design, same keyboard placement, same bulkiness.
So the question that needs be ask, what is it about this new and current Alienware 13 has me so impressed to want to write about it? Its that OLED screen though. That super crispy QHD display with a resolution that measures 2560 x 1440, a 300 Nits brightness, 104% color gamut. Powering this high intense graphics on this crispy QHD OLED display is an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 965M with 4GB of dedicated GDDR5 memory.
While we're talking hardware, why not give you the rest of the listed spec sheet. Continuing right along, the processor is an Intel Core i7-6500U dual-core that boosts to 3,1GHz, 8GB LPDDR3-1600MHz RAM, 512GB Samsung PM851 NVMe PCIe SSD, Killer Networking Ethernet connection and 802.11ac WiFi connection. Its outer ports consist of 3 Thunderbolt Type C Ports and Alienware's own AMP Port.
My feelings about the Alienware 13 most certainly changed, because its that OLED display though.
