Despite its stylish exterior, the Surface Laptop 2 is loaded with high-powered hardware. It offers a 1920 x 1080 Full HD IPS display that supports 300 cd/m2 brightness, a contrast ratio of 700:1, a refresh rate of 60 Hz, and viewing angles of 170°. The display is powered by NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card with 6GB of GDDR6 VRAM. You can put your games through the best possible settings and enjoy them at their highest levels.
The processor is a 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7-8750H Six-Core which allows the user to easily multitask and quickly access files. There are 16GB of 2666 MHz DDR4 RAM that allow the user to efficiently run many programs simultaneously.
The Alienware m15 has 512GB of NVMe PCIe storage. If you need to plug anything into the computer that doesn’t connect via USB or Thunderbolt, you’ll find three USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports, one which features PowerShare technology and one Thunderbolt 3 port.
The Alienware 18 has an HDMI 2.0b, Mini DisplayPort 1.3, and Thunderbolt 3 ports for connecting to multiple devices at once. Other features include a built-in webcam that works with Windows 10, Gigabit Ethernet and Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac), Bluetooth 5.0, headphone/mic jacks, stereo speakers, and 16 million colors of customizable light from the series keyboard on the laptop’s body. The AC adapter, power cord, and battery are included along with an installed operating system of Windows 10 Home (64-bit).
Dell’s thin and light chassis is designed with a dual-fan cooling system. This keeps the core components cool, improving the overall performance of the device.
Dell’s Alienware m15 is great for gamers who want to carry their gaming laptop with them wherever they go. The laptop is packed with fast performance, including an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card and NVIDIA technologies like ray tracing, DLSS, and AI-enhanced graphics rendering. In addition to its power and portability, the m15 offers a long battery life.
Alienware’s Graphics Amplifier is designed just for gamers. It supports next-generation NVIDIA and AMD graphics cards that have a 4-port USB 3.0 hub and a dedicated PCI Express x4 Gen 3 slot to make sure that you have plenty of speed for your peripherals without sharing a connection with other devices.
The Cryo-Tech v2.0 thermal technology helps ensure that the system’s GPU thermal design power is enabled and keeps your system cool as the action heats up.
The m15’s superior performance is possible because of a 2.2GHz Intel Core i7-8750H Six-Core processor, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card, and up to 16GB of 2666MHz DDR4 memory in a 2 x 8GB configuration. With its two SO-DIMM slots, it is also upgradeable to 32GB of memory using just one module 16GB at a time.
The system can be quiet and will load faster. You can choose how much storage you want, with an Intel Optane SSD, PCIe M.2, or a hybrid HDD with 8GB of memory.
The M15 is a mid-range system that offers a lot of power. It’s reasonably slim and has a 144 Hz screen option. It has ports and connections, but it doesn’t have the design leaps of faith that other systems like the Asus Zephyrus, Razer Blade, or even the new Alienware Area-51 Threadripper have. The M15 is more about having the chops than flashiness.
The m15 is a good choice for anyone who wants a stylish computer that doesn’t make too many sacrifices for the sake of processing power or looks.
