Product Description

A gaming rig for the hardcore, the quality here is absolutely exceptional. The Alienware 15 R2 has a no-nonsense design while remaining stylish: a silver lid and a unique yellow touchpad and accents. Its sleek nature, however, doesn't hamper the laptop's power, so gamers can rest assured in knowing that the games they play will remain in-tact. The construction that has gone into this laptop is incredible, and the result is a gaming laptop that doesn't mess about and looks awesome whatever it's doing. The copper heat sinks that enable proper cooling means that it runs almost silently, and even after a few hours of the most demanding games like Rise of the Tomb Raider, it remains quietly unassuming while delivering everything on full settings. The display is a bombshell, with IPS-based LCD technology on an impressive 15.6-inch HD screen that's crisp and clear, while the sound comes courtesy of the strikingly excellent Klipsch and Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi technology. You can get easier collaboration too, with the Full HD webcam and dual microphone array, so you'll never wonder where your teammates are ever again. A gaming laptop for the dedicated gamer with an eye on excellence and beauty.
