It wouldn't be an Alienware machine without plenty of lights -- you'll find multiple lighting zones to customize to your heart's content.

The Alienware 17 can pair with the Alienware Graphics Peripheral, giving you desktop-class performance -- provided you're willing to shell out the extra cash for it.
