Tobii Eye Tracking

I tried using the eye tracking when I plated Deus Ex: Mankind Divided but didn't find it useful. The optional circle indicates where I'm looking, but it also showed me how my gaze drifts. So I guess it might be useful as a tool to improve your aim. It also works with power management to wake from sleep when you gaze at it.

Low key

When the Alienware 17 is unilluminated, it's not terribly exciting to look at.

Typical

On the inside, it's a typical gaming laptop, without any visual bells or whistles.

Keyboard

The keyboard has a nice feel, even just for typing, and it's reinforced with steel.

Illuminated touchpad

You can't see it here very well, but the entire touchpad illuminates as part of the color programming.

Alienware command center

It wastes a lot of screen space and doesn't provide a lot of controls for performance tweaking. It's pretty good for programming the lighting zones, though.
