Alienware jumps into the VR-ready laptop gameLook closely at these new gaming laptops and you'll also spot a new, modern reworking of the Alienware logo.
[MUSIC] It's a great time to be a PC gamer or at least a fan of PC gaming hardware. Desktops are flying off the shelves thanks to the popularity of Virtual Reality Headsets among early tech adopters. Alienware is joining that arms race with a pair of redesigned gaming laptops. The new Alienware 15 and Alienware 17 both feature current gen Intel processors. And Nvidia's new 10-series GPUs, which is important as these new Nvidia GPUs promise nearly the same performance in both their laptop and desktop versions. That means the Alienware 15 and Alienware 17 are ready for the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive despite being slimmer than the models they're replacing. The new design is subtly updated with a thinner body and inset hinge that gives fans and vents more room to work. Without adding bulk and even optional eye tracking from a company named Tobii in the 17 inch version. If you look closely, you'll see one more important change, the iconic alien head is just a hair slimmer and more screen lined while the alien were named is now written in a lighter thought for a more modern look.
