Graphics to Be Reckoned With


You′re only as good as your GPU.

Experience incredible scalability, performance and compatibility while obtaining desktop-quality imagery.

Your Command Center

Powerfully Unique Design


Power isn′t only on the inside of the Alienware M17x. Protect your world with Alienware′s all-new, anodized aluminum case design with aggressive lines and in-your-face attitude that can manage your thermals and look good doing it. And you can personalize your machine with a choice of two color options: Metallic Silver or Metallic Black.

QuickTouch system control pad — Run your fingers above the keyboard on your M17x and you won′t feel a thing. Your laptop, however, will. The Alienware QuickTouch control pad uses touch-capacitive sensors to access and manage power and volume controls, Bluetooth® and wireless connectivity and Command Center and Stealth Mode launch functions. Illuminated by the dramatic AlienFX lighting control system, QuickTouch renders mechanical buttons and control knobs obsolete.

Stunning Display — See bolder colors on the 17¨ widescreen LCD display. Featuring a dual CCFL back-lit LCD with higher brightness, the Alienware M17x will display more detailed, higher-quality imagery than single CCFL displays. And with an 8-ms response time, ghosting will be a thing of the past.

Webcam — The 2.0-megapixel webcam and digital microphone array lets you broadcast across the web, while wireless capabilities have you up and running anytime, anywhere.

Personalized plaque — Turn over your new Alienware M17x and check out the laser-etched nameplate* that proclaims your custom-built M17x is unique to only you. (*Personalized nameplate is not available in Nordic languages.)

Anodized aluminum — Sophistication. Protection. Durability. Alienware M17x′s case design combines a long life span with naturally textured beauty that can withstand normal wear and tear. Considering the amount of gaming power the M17x pumps out, a case that can manage thermals efficiently and has plenty of strength to protect everything inside is essential. The M17x′s anodized aluminum case design boasts aggressive lines and an in-your-face attitude.

Technologies

ALIENSENSE


Lockdown

AlienSense facial recognition software offers state-of-the-art security to M17x users. Utilizing the system′s webcam, AlienSense records and analyzes individual distinguishing features for incredible accuracy. Passwords can be forgotten, stolen or guessed. Biometric identification cannot be duplicated or forged.

Each time you log on to your M17x, AlienSense collects biometric data to constantly improve its speed and accuracy. The ability to learn allows AlienSense to adapt to day-to-day variations in your appearance, including hairstyle, whether you′re wearing glasses and even facial hair.

AlienSense has four separate security modes for varying degrees of desired protection:

Disabled — All functionality is completely turned off.

Face Login — Logs you on when you first access the computer and then performs no additional security checks until the computer is locked, logged off or rebooted.

Auto User Switching — Automatically switches between user Vista® accounts when a new user approaches and is recognized. "Auto lock on unauthorized user" locks the laptop after 60 seconds of viewing an unrecognized face.

Continuous Security — Your laptop is set to lock after a preset amount of time without a visible face. This is the highest security level that allows you to lock your computer automatically anytime you walk away from the system.
