What you need to know
- The Alienware m15 R6 has been unveiled.
- It features the latest in Intel CPU and NVIDIA GPU hardware.
- Its starting price will be $1,299.
Just a month after the debut of the Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition R5, we now have the Alienware m15 R6 to look forward to. As expected, it's in line with all the other Alienware m15s in that it's an absolute tank of a laptop featuring the latest and greatest in gaming-centric hardware.
The m15 R6 features many benefits and special features, ranging from its stain-resistant paint formula and ultra-low-profile keyboard with 1.8 millimeters of total key travel to its new, optional 240W small form factor power adapter and wide array of hardware options.
If you're looking for an m15 R6 that's more affordable than the most expensive configs, you can get that and have your machine kitted with an RTX 3050 and less storage. Or, if you want to go all the way to the top of the gaming food chain, you can opt for an RTX 3080, Intel Core i9 11900H, and 32GB of RAM. Whatever your preference and budgetary limit is, Alienware has you covered — as long as you have $1,299 to start with, not including whatever sales tax you may have to pay in your area.
As is common knowledge, Alienware products are expensive, and the m15 line is no different. Here are the m15 R6 config options you'll get for your hard-earned dollar:
