X-Series gaming laptops are one of Alienware’s best-selling product categories. And it is extending into new areas with new X-Series models. With the premium build quality and lower profiles, the new Alienware x15 and Alienware x17 are aimed at the gaming market and are the thinnest 15-inch and 17-inch gaming laptops from the business.
“The X-Series was designed to meet the needs of our community. We made sure to deliver more than just your basic thin gaming laptop to our customers. We wanted to shake things up and start a new mobile gaming experience, and that’s exactly what we’ve done”, Said Vivian Lien, vice president of Gaming for Dell Technologies, stated in a blog post.
The new Cryo-Tech system is included in the X-Series laptops, featuring an updated thermal interface material (available on specific configurations). To reduce the spikes in core temperatures, the system uses technology to diffuse heat.
