If gaming on a laptop is your priority, then you're in for a real treat with this one. Let's start with the Alienware's killer feature: it has a 360Hz refresh rate on its display. That's a huge step up from your average screen, and it's especially unique in a laptop. You'll really notice the difference when playing a game like Warzone or Halo Infinite. The screen is 15.6 inches and has a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution as well.

The internals for this machine include an 11th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB DDR4 RAM, and a 512GB M.2 solid state drive with NVMe technology for super fast read and write times. It is also powered by a Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card so you can play those shooters you love and do so at high settings. It also uses Alienware's Cryo-Tech cooling technology to ensure you aren't overheating after a long playing session.
