E3 2013: Alienware reveals new line of laptops

At Alienware's press event Monday night at E3, the gaming manufacturer showed off a new line of high end gaming laptops that replaces its "Mx" family. The laptops only use the Alienware brand to identify themselves; they are called the Alienware 14, Alienware 17 and Alienware 18 laptops. Having seen all three close up at the press event, the notebooks definitely have a cool design aesthetic, with a top panel that is smoother than previous laptops from the Dell subsidiary but that still has a somewhat edgier look.

All three new Alienware laptops have a custom lighting system for the keyboard, top panel, bottom panel, and touchpad, and can all be adjusted with the new Alienware Command Center software. They can even support lighting profiles for when you are playing a specific game.

All three new laptops have support for Intel's fourth generation Core processors inside, up to i7 chips, and NVIDIA's GeForce 700 series of GPUs. The Alienware 14, with its 14-inch display can have up to three storage drives, while the Alienware 17 and 18 can support up to four storage drives. The Alienware 18 also has the option for SLI dual NVIDIA GeForce 700 series GPUs and has a full HD screen with PLS support, which allows for viewing the screen even at a wide angle.

All three new Alienware laptops are available for sale now. The Alienware 14 has a starting price of $1,198, with the Alienware 17 priced starting at $1,499. The Alienware 18 is priced starting at $2,099.
