Big screen. Big performance.
The Alienware 17 is thinner and lighter than any 17 inch laptop we’ve created before, but that doesn't mean we skimped on performance. It’s crafted with aerospace-inspired carbon fiber filled surfaces that add stiffness and durability, and copper heat sinks that enable proper cooling. Powered by high-performance latest generation Intel processors, and offering a new USB Type-C port with support for SuperSpeed USB 10 Gbps (USB 3.1) and Thunderbolt 3 technologies, the Alienware 17 is designed to give you the best experience on an impressive screen.
Built for intense gaming.
More power: Alienware 17 automatically overclocks and monitors internal temperatures to keep your system running cool when the action is hot and deliver performance precisely when you need it.
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. Get up to pixel density for astonishing color clarity, and extra wide viewing angles.
Sound and fury: Rich, impressive audio is powered by Klipsch and Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi technology. Visually connect with comrades and competitors with a 2.0MP Full HD webcam and let the banter flow with a dual microphone array.
The family powerhouse: Outfitted with the latest generation Intel processors, it is equipped for advanced power and a seamless gaming experience.
Supercharged gaming: The processors in Alienware 17 offer Dynamic Overclocking to kick in extra power when your game demands it, so you won’t miss a beat.
Connect and conquer: A double-shot of the best gaming networking technology is inside with Killer Gigabit Ethernet and Killer Wireless 802.11ac WiFi — so you’re getting the smoothest possible streaming video and gaming packets when you need them most. Multitask when you need to, without any lags or lulls in the performance you crave. Plus, all Alienware 17 laptops come with Bluetooth 4.1 technology.
Cutting edge craftsmanship.
Carbon fiber craftsmanship: Inspired by aerospace technologies, the carbon fiber composites in Alienware laptops deliver a unique rigidity and high stiffness-to-weight ratio. The result is a whole new tactile experience.
Sleek. Solid. Aluminum: Displays this good require serious protection, so we encased them in an anodized aluminum shell that matches the hinge strength and structural rigidity and boasts a new, iconic design.
Cooler with copper: Churn out maximum power while keeping your cool. Copper thermal modules allow your graphics cards and processors to perform at the highest level while the heat pipes and blocks prevent overheating.
Guaranteed up to 10 million keystrokes: Experience the sensation of uniform feedback with the reinforced steel plate of our TactX keyboard, which also protects internal components from debris. Launch shortcuts to applications or even macros in-game, thanks to nine customizable keys capable of up to 19 unique commands, programmed via the Alienware Command Center software.
Rigorously tested for robust durability: Alienware laptops are tested to stand up to tens of thousands of functions : power button pushes, hinges opening and closing, twists, turns, and up to 1 million touchpad strokes. We test hard so you can game hard, reliably.

Blow your hair back: Use your USB Type- C port as a Thunderbolt 3 port, and experience 40Gbps (4x the USB 3.1 protocol).
Solid-State Drive (SSD): Solid-state drives are similar to the flash-based memory that you find in USB memory devices and have no moving parts, making them more secure and less prone to failure than standard hard drives. SSDs also pull your data from the drive faster and outperform 10,000 rpm Hard Disk Drives (HDDs) in read/write speeds, meaning you’ll also get faster load times on game maps and other information that’s stored on your device.
For people on the go, the potential benefits are significant.
- Improved performance — faster boot times, faster application launches and faster access to all your documents
- Durability — helps protect your important files from potential drops
- Longer battery life — lower power consumption by SSDs than HDDs
- Quieter, lightweight, and cooler than standard hard drives

Build quality is great, it feels very sturdy.
Keyboard and touch-pad are some of the best I've ever used on a laptop.
Screen is gorgeous, and the video card is running all my game at high or ultra settings, just like I had hoped.
It doesn't run overly hot, even while gaming.
Battery is decent for a rig this powerful, of this size. I get about 4 hours out of it before I have to plug it in, while gaming (almost all I do).
I suspect it would last longer if I wasn't gaming so much.
In short, this laptop is everything you expect a high quality, top of the line (or close to it), rig to be.
I had LOADS of IRQ, BIOS and Driver issues out of the box.
Crashes, blue screens, conflicts...
I spent a day updating and troubleshooting various problems, updating practically ALL my drivers, the BIOS...
I wont go into all of it here, because there was a lot, and these sort of issues will be different with each computer, so a lengthy explanation wouldn't be useful, with one exception.
I had the exact same problem as tons of other people with the Killer Wireless dropping signal constantly.
Seriously, do a search, it's a VERY common problem with this laptop.
After spending some time researching the issue (which will generate a lot of possible solutions), and trying several "fixes" to no avail. I downloaded the newest Killer Network Manager from their website, then uninstalled both the existing suite AND the existing killer wireless drivers. Then I installed the newest version of the Killer Network Manager (which includes drivers). This fixed the issue. I have gone several days now with no Wireless issues. NOTE: be sure to DL the newest version BEFORE you uninstall everything or you won't be able to get online to DL it!
Long story short, after spending a couple days updating, uninstalling and reinstalling, and a 2 hours on the phone with Alienware to fix a few issues that updating drivers wouldn't fix, I now have an amazing laptop that runs perfect, and is everything I had hoped it would be.
Having to do all that work was a pain in the ass for sure, but it shouldn't be a deal breaker. None of the problems were defective hardware, etc.
As someone who is fairly tech-savvy, and someone who spent months researching before pulling the trigger on this purchase, I still feel that this laptop represents the best value at this price-point.
Summary: I received a first product that came with a "blue screen of death" issue. It started up and it went to the blue screen error crash, after rebooting itself for 6-7 cycles, I shut it down and contacted Alienware. After I spoke to Alienware support.... They have CONFIRMED a software issue. NVIDIA sent Dell/Alienware a memo/notice about the new video drivers for the card.
They said that the old drivers should work fine. since the computer wouldn't land on the desktop for me to address this, I decided to not endure the issue of a new $1600 computer that should work out of the box. Amazon promptly replaced the item and took the return without a hassle. Always great.
The second computer worked fine, I didn't install drivers or anything. It booted up without any hassles or difficulties. The performance and graphics are fantastic. I played World of Tanks and Final Fantasy 14 without issues. FF14 runs at 70+ FPS at the highest settings. Boots up very fast and it runs programs very quickly. The sound is great for a laptop, It even has a port underneath for some deep sounds.. It's not a boom box, but it's pretty rich for what it is.
After 24 days, it was dead. The light on the power adapter was on, but as soon as it got plugged into the laptop, the light went out and the laptop wont power up or recharge. Who knows what's wrong with it.
I contacted Amazon about the issue, they were helpful immediately and issued a return order and refund.
I titled this review "I Don't Know" because part of me knows for a fact that this can't possibly be the norm and it must be an isolated incident(s)
Here's where I stand. A laptop computer priced at this level should work without any issues, software or hardware. I am very understanding and it is a likely case of getting a couple of damaged/defective units. It is interesting to know that Dell would probably spot the issue and repair it. BUT, Would you REALLY want a mended computer that you JUST purchased for $1600?
In my opinion, the performance of the device should be a reflection of the price paid for the product. We should not have to tweak the hell out of the computer to get it to work.
Is there something I need to know may be?? Or what can I do to fix this problem I have????
