See Dell’s New VR Ready Gaming Laptops


Dell announced a thinner version of its Alienware (gaming notebook) laptops last week. The 13, 15 and 17 inch virtual reality (VR) ready laptops feature an Intel Core i7 CPU each. The Alienware 17 flagship notebook gains more power with overclocked Intel Core i7 k-series processors and DDR4 memory running up to 2667 Mhz. Newly added support for optional IR Tobii eye-tracking technology adds great accessibility features based on where you’re looking. It allows gamers to fine tune their skills with a new Overwolf app that can replay your gaze pattern so gamers can track where they were looking during gameplay; gamers can then learn from their mistakes and be sure to focus their attention on the best opportunities to crush the competition. 

The 15 and 17 inch machines have a 1080p IPS screens with 120Hz refresh and G-sync support, plus 2667 MHz DDR4 RAM.

On the graphics side, the laptops have the latest NVIDIA laptop cards and while the Alienware 17 has the NVIDIA GTX 1080 chip, the 13 and 15 Alienware feature the GTX 1070 and 1060 respectively.

They all support 4K display in addition to being VR ready. Dell is also touting battery life which it says has 68 watt-hour lithium ion battery and an optional 99 watt-hour battery to enable extended gameplay when away from a plug.
