At Computex 2019, Dell updated the new design for their m15 and m17 gaming laptops, making it a common design language with the Area-m51 introduced earlier this year. With this update, the m15 and m17 are faster, stronger, thinner, but unfortunately it doesn't have a modular design like a senior. In terms of prices, both m15 and m17 will sell on June 11, starting at $ 1499. (white below is m15, black is m17).
The update of Alienware's m15 and m17 designs is a surprise to many, as the m15 was only upgraded last year while the m17 was at CES 2019 earlier this year. This new design is somewhat similar to the m51 released earlier this year.
Both will own a new keyboard, a smaller frame, made from magnesium alloy with longer journeys, so typing is also preferable. In addition, Trackpad is also refreshed, glazed and larger.
And of course, the duo also upgraded processor and graphics chips with Intel Core i 9th generation along with the latest RTX graphics cards. Specifically, the basic configuration uses Core i5 and the highest version is Core i9, optionally graphics card from GTX1650 to RTX2080.
In terms of options, the Alienware m15 will have a FullHD display with scan frequencies 60Hz, 144Hz or 240Hz or 60Hz OLED panels. It should be noted, only the 240Hz FullHD screen and the new OLED 4K comes with the Tobii sensor option that tracks eye movement.
A minus point of m17 and sad news for Brothers who like the big screen is that it won't have 4K options, but only: FullHD 60Hz Tobii or FullHD 144Hz with Tobii.
One note is that m17 is really big, heavy (heavier than m15 0.5kg – m17 weighs 2.63kg – m15 weighs 2.13kg). Many exhibitors were "choked", I thought m15 fit and fit more people.
Regarding the heat dissipation of the machine, Alienware has redesigned the cooling system, using Cyro-Tech 2.0 technology more optimally, increasing the wind volume by 20% on m15 and 25% on m17 compared to the previous generation. Plus re-design internal capacitors, 8 different voltage levels for graphics chips and 6 CPU levels. So the device will be more stable and cool when playing games.
