Alienware unveils slimmed-down gaming laptops

Dell has unveiled two new Alienware gaming laptops: a 15-inch and 17-inch model, both of which have been slimmed-down to conform with the unrealistically high standards of the modern laptop fashion scene.

Both units can be equipped with Intel i7 CPUs and Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 980M, and are compatible with Alienware’s Graphics Amplifier.

The team at Alienware are punting the laptops’ size as one of its selling points, promising the pair are 20% thinner than their predecessors.
