The Alienware's design is inspired by aerospace technology. The use of carbon fibers for filling surface spaces make the machine rigid, strong, and lightweight. The 33.02 cm (13) Full HD TN panel anti-glare display brings the action alive with its 1366 x 768 resolution and rich color reproduction.
The notebook is powered by a 6th Generation Intel Core i5 processor that has a 2.3 GHz clock speed. There is a separate NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 960M graphics processor that delivers superior performance for all gaming and graphics applications. The combination of 500-GB HDD, 8-GB SSD, 8-GB DDR3 RAM, and a 2-GB DDR5 graphics memory fulfills your needs for storage and speed.
