The VR-ready Alienware 13 notebook is now available to purchase

The new Alienware 13, which the company is billing as the world's first VR-ready 13-inch notebook, is now available to purchase (opens in new tab). The portable powerhouse packs plenty to be excited about, including NVIDIA's latest GTX 10-series graphics chips.

On the Alienware 13, you'll find a 13.3-inch display in HD, FHD or QHD options, with the QHD configuration coming with an OLED panel. Inside you'll be able to choose between an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor, along with NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1060 graphics chip. RAM options range from 8GB on the low end, all the way up to 32GB at the top. As for storage, you're looking at SSD options going from 180GB up to 1TB. Of course, this is all packed inside a pretty unique chassis, which Alienware says is stronger and more durable than previous generations while also be a little thinner.

If you're interested in giving the new Alienware 13 a shot, the VR-ready notebook is now available starting at $1,199 for the base version, or $2,099 with an optional OLED display.

  • Needs more bezel.
  • That made me laugh.
  • wish it was lighter. and thinner
  • That pricing is pretty good for a gaming laptop with such power.
  • I dunno...everything seems pretty good but putting a ($300) 1060 into it is pretty limiting. Especially with QHD, a 1060 for $2,100 is insane. That's gonna seriously limit its futureproofing in new and unreleased titles, especially as we move to DX12.
  • nvidia graphics ... no thanx ... their drivers are always flakey ... and a month wait after ordering.  
  • Your other option is AMD which is not a whole lot better in the driver department.
  • "The new Alienware 13, which the company is billing as the world's first VR-ready 13-inch notebook"   Technically, the Aorus X3 at 13.9" was the world first 13" VR ready laptop.
  • Cool. Been saving up for something to replace the M11x-R1 I picked up back in 2010 and still use as my daily driver.
  • Hey, can someone please explain what VR ready means in context of a laptop? I mean I assume it will work with VR when a headset is connected, but I am not sure. Thanks in advance :)
