Alienware m15 hands-on: A thin, light gaming PC that packs some punch

Cramming gaming power into a laptop that's also thin and light is a difficult proposition, but that's just what Alienware has done with its latest entry, the m15. The new laptop retains plenty of gaming prowess, but in a chassis that measures around 0.8 inches thick and weighs 4.8 pounds.

On the inside, the Alienware can sport an Intel Core i7-8750HQ processor, NVIDIA GeFore GTX 1070 Max-Q graphics, 16GB of RAM and dual storage with a 1TB SSD and 1TB hard drive. That's along with a 1080p display running at 144Hz. Oh, and there are plenty of ports to be had as well.
