Dell unveiled a number of brand-new gaming laptops at the Consumer Electronics Show 2023 (CES), which is currently ongoing. The American company has introduced a number of new products, one of which is the Alienware M18, a gaming laptop that features a large display.
An 18-inch display with two panels is included on the Dell Alienware M18. One panel features a QHD+ resolution and a refresh rate of 165 Hz, while the other panel features an FHD+ resolution and a refresh rate of 480 Hz. The device has a response time of 3 milliseconds, a brightness of 300 nits, a color gamut that is 100 percent DCI-P3, and ComfortView Plus technology, which is designed to limit the amount of blue light emitted.
The Alienware M18 features a brand-new design called Legend 3.0, which is said to be capable of delivering a powerful performance despite its compact size. It is exactly the same thickness as its predecessor, and both the top and bottom are made of aluminum. You have the option of selecting between the CherryMX ultra-low profile mechanical backlit keyboard or the Perkey AlienFX backlit full-sized keyboard. Both of these keyboards feature backlighting. This laptop comes equipped with a 720p webcam that also has IR sensors.
The Dell Alienware M18 features up to 13th generation Intel Core i9 processors and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 GPU onboard. These components are housed within the chassis. Later on in this year, it will also be accessible in AMD Ryzen and Radeon core processors and graphics processors. The system includes as much as 9 TB of solid-state storage and 64 GB of DDR5 RAM. There are two DDR5 SO-DIM slots that can be replaced by the user. In addition, the laptop has what is known as an Element 31 thermal interface, which consists of seven heat pipes, expanded vapor chambers, and four ultra-thin fans. All of these components work together to improve the cooling performance of the laptop. A large 330-watt power adapter is included with the Alienware M18 laptop, which is powered by a 97-watt-hour battery unit.
There is also a model of the Alienware M18 with a display of 16 inches that is referred to as the M16. This model is intended for users who do not want to purchase a laptop with a very large screen. The only difference between it and the M18 is the size of the screen.
In the United States, the Dell Alienware M18 has a starting price tag of $2,099; however, the business has announced that in the start, only models with more advanced specifications would be available for purchase. At a later time, the basic models will be made available to customers. The starting price for the Alienware M16 is $1,899.
