The most powerful Intelmobile processor available, ATI CrossFireXCore dual-GPU graphics and Alienware’s dramatic industrial design deliver the ultimate Hi-def mobile gaming and entertainment experience. Strike fear in your enemies and taste sweet victory. Speed is Survival. Any hesitation means almost-certain death. Powe through the most headcore games and intense applications with the latest Intel Core i7 and Core i5 processors featuring the Intel Turbo Boos Technology for dynamic, on-the-fly overclocking. Graphics to Be Reckoned With

You’re only as good as your GPU. If you want your games cranked up to max settings with ultra-fast frame rates, the Alienware M17x now offers up to a full one teraflop of sheer graphics power with ATI CrossFireXTM . Experience incredible scalability, performance and compatibility while obtaining desktop-quality imagery.

BinaryGFX — With Alienware’s BinaryGFX technology, users have the ability to switch between discrete or integrated graphics.

Stealth Mode — While in Stealth Mode, discrete graphics cards are turned off and other components throttle down to achieve a 65W power limit.
Your Command Center

Alienware Command Center provides intuitive, user-friendly access to exclusive applications and controls, including AlienFX lighting effects software and AlienFusion power management system. Updates and new releases download directly into Command Center, creating a constantly evolving tool for modifying and personalising your M17x.

AlienSense — This facial recognition software identifies numerous distinguishing features, utilising the M17x’s webcam to read and verify biometric measurements that cannot be faked or stolen like a typed password.

Powerfully Unique Design

Power isn’t only on the inside of the Alienware M17x. Protect your world with Alienware’s all-new, anodized aluminum case design with aggressive lines and in-your-face attitude that can manage your thermals and look good doing it. And you can personalise your machine with a choice of two colour options: Metallic Silver or Metallic Black.

QuickTouch system control pad — Run your fingers above the keyboard on your M17x and you won’t feel a thing. Your laptop, however, will. The Alienware QuickTouch control pad uses touch-capacitive sensors to access and manage power and volume controls, Bluetooth and wireless connectivity and Command Center and Stealth Mode launch functions. Illuminated by the dramatic AlienFX lighting control system, QuickTouch renders mechanical buttons and control knobs obsolete.

Stunning Display — See bolder colours on the 17" (43 cm) widescreen LCD display. Featuring a dual CCFL back-lit LCD with higher brightness, the Alienware M17x will display more detailed, higher-quality imagery than single CCFL displays. And with an 8-ms response time, ghosting will be a thing of the past.

Webcam — The 2.0-megapixel webcam and digital microphone array lets you broadcast across the web, while wireless capabilities have you up and running anytime, anywhere.

Anodized aluminum — Sophistication. Protection. Durability. Alienware M17x’s case design combines a long life span with naturally textured beauty that can withstand normal wear and tear. Considering the amount of gaming power the M17x pumps out, a case that can manage thermals efficiently and has plenty of strength to protect everything inside is essential. The M17x’s anodized aluminum case design boasts aggressive lines and an in-your-face attitude.
