I always considered that, when it comes to gaming laptops, bigger is better – at least if we’re talking about the size of the screen and I don’t really think that there are any real gaming laptops that have a display size that’s smaller than 15 inches. Well, Dell is trying to change that and offer a chance to those looking for gaming options on smaller, portable screens with the introduction of the Alienware 13.
Dell has just announced that it’s updating its Alienware range of products soon and the product that caught my eye was the extremely impressive gaming laptop that we’ll know as Alienware 13: an OLED notebook that packs a big punch, even though its one of the smallest gaming laptops in the world right now.
The 13 inch notebook has a 2560 x 1440 pixel OLED touchscreen display that has a 1ms response time and an impressive contrast ratio of 100,000:1. And since it’s a gaming laptop that we’re talking about, it has the technology to let you enjoy the latest games and high settings!
It is powered by a i7-6500U processor (although other less advanced models might be available too), NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M or GTX 965M graphics cards and up to 16GB of RAM. In other words, a real beast under the small hood – one that will impress everybody who touches it, including me. Maybe I will finally change my mind and start considering laptops that have less than 17 inches in diagonal better for gaming.
The Alienware 13 OLED notebook is just about 1 inch thick and weights about 4.5 pounds, which makes it pretty chunky for its size – but it’s a gaming laptop that we’re talking about and these are always a bit heavier.
The most important thing is that those who are looking to game on the go and don’t want to carry around a huge beast of a laptop finally have the perfect option with the Alienware 13: it’s portable and extremely powerful, delivering great gaming experiences even when dealing with recent games.
