The already impressive Alienware m15 is getting it’s newest iteration in amazing fashion!

In what should now be the standard in presenting products digitally, Alienware unleashed their latest m15 iterations. The Alienware m15 will come in two flavors, the AMD powered R5 and the Intel powered R6.

Under the hood of both these devices are the best that the current market has to offer. for the R5 you have the latest Ryzen 5000 processors, while the R6 comes with the freshest Intel 11th Gen processors. Of course, handling the graphics side is Nvidia’s RTX 3000-series. These notebooks also come with up to a 240Hz QHD display. The top variants receive another surprise in the form of Cherry mechanical switches for their keyboards. Sadly, you won’t be having a slot for a 2.5-inch harddrive on these models but you do get two m.2 SSD slots. Lastly, gone are the days of not being able to upgrade your RAM in 15-inch Alienwares. The m15 R5 and R6 will both have RAM upgradeability options.

The biggest key difference between the R5 and R6, apart from their processors of course, is on their I/O. The Ryzen-powered R5 sadly has no support for Thunderbolt 4 and will settle for the traditional USB Type-C. The R6, on the other hand, will enjoy full Thunderbolt 4 support.

The R5 will be available in the Philippines mid October with a starting price of Php 168,990. The R6 will follow right after during the end of October with a starting price of Php 160,490.
