Alienware has finally launched its new line of gaming laptops, the Alienware Super Slim x15 and x17. The Alienware x15 and x17 are considered the world’s most powerful sub-16mm gaming laptops; on the other hand, the x17 is one of the thinnest 17-inch notebooks ever, which has a thickness of only 20.9mm.
The Alienware Super Slim x15 and x17 are measured as around 0.6 inches and 0.8 inches thick. But despite their thin design, these models can be equipped with prominent GPUs like GeForce RTX 3060 and even the powerful GeForce RTX 3080. In addition, these laptops, x15 and x17, will come with either an 11th-gen Intel Core i7 11800H or 11900HK processor.
