The Alienware m15 and m17 duo gets refreshed with the new i9 mobile processors!

Dell’s thin and light gaming beasts, the Alienware m15 and m17, are getting mid-cycle refreshes featuring the new 9th gen i9 mobile processors. The duo was officially launched this Computex 2019.

This is still the much loved m15 and m17 we got introduced to last fall, though with much needed upgrades on both internals and looks. First up we get a more refined and futuristic look, gone are the standard Alienware lines we had with the past models. We’re now getting a cleaner display lid and a more aggressive back exhaust. The color scheme was also changed to two-tone black and silver instead of pure black.

Inside, we’re now getting the newly launched 9th gen Core i9 mobile processors and up to an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q GPU. Cooling was also revamped, the m15 and m17 now features new fans, larger air intakes, thick copper and zinc alloy heatpipes, and as we mentioned earlier, redesigned exhausts.

To top it all off, the 15-inch m15 can now be outfitted with a variety of display options such as a 60Hz FHD panel, 4k OLED panel or a 240Hz FHD IPS panel. Sadly, the m17 only has FHD panels but with 60 and 144Hz options. The duo is slated for release this June with starting prices of $1,499 (~Php 78,555).
