Alienware x17 R2 will get slimmer, positive aspects Intel’s twelfth Gen CPUs



Alienware is known for a few things when it comes to its gaming laptops. Creating systems that are powerful and pretty with lots of configurations. Oh, and the lights. Lots of blinking, breathing, pulsating LED lights. You’re getting all of that with the latest addition to the Alienware xSeries family, the x17 R2. And you’re getting a few more bells and whistles thanks to Intel’s new 12th Gen processors, some new cooling tech and some new Nvidia components. 


The original Alienware x17 was a vision in Lunar White and x17 R2 carries on that tradition. Sporting Alienware’s Legend 2.0 design, the x17 R2 is all sleek lines and rounded corners. And as pretty as the notebook is with its blink-and-you-might-miss-it pearlescence, the heart wants what it cannot have –– in this case, it’s the off-black tint that Alienware lovingly calls Dark Side of the Moon. 

And while the x17 R2 maintains its predecessor’s good looks, it did undergo a bit of a makeover for the new year, shedding a few tenths of an inch to become Alienware’s thinnest 17-inch gaming laptop to date weighing 6.5 pounds and measuring 15.7 x 11.8 x 0.8-inches, which 0.04 inches slimmer than its predecessor and puts it in striking distance of the Razer Blade 17 (15.5 x 10.2 x 0.78 inches).
