- Alienware Area 51m Drivers & User Manual Guide
Launching GPU Nvidia RTX mobile version triggers the presence of many new gaming laptops. We’ve already seen the offerings from Razer, and now a Dell turns that is rally through his Alienware brand.
At the stage of CES 2019, Dell officially introduced the Alienware Area 51m. His name can borrow the name of the first laptop Alienware, but Dell actually designed it as the ultimate gaming laptop, and it was not solely represented by upscale specifications only.
As I said, the Nvidia RTX GPU is one of the features it offers, with the most expensive variant packing the RTX 2080 desktop version that has been collapsed by Dell itself. Then in the processor section, there’s Intel Core I9-9900K, one of Intel’s fastest desktop chips today.
But making the Area 51m very special is, those components can be replaced with new customers like a PC. This differs from the majority of gaming laptops claiming to be upgradeable, but in reality, it can only be replaced by RAM and storage components only.
Speaking of RAM and storage, the 51m Area can be configured to package up to 64 GB of DDR4 RAM and a 2 TB SSD storage combination of 1 TB hybrid drive. Switching to the screen, users will be greeted by a 17.3-inch resolution 1080p display, with a choice of 60 or 144 Hz refresh rate, as well as optional G-Sync and TOBII eye-tracking support.
For connectivity, the Area 51m packages Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C), 3x USB-A 3.1, HDMI 2.0, Mini DisplayPort, Ethernet 2.5 Gbps, and ports to connect an Alienware Graphics Amplifier a.k.a. external GPU.
Once Area is 51m, it requires two adapters at a time. However, if it is only used for light work that does not require maximum CPU performance, users simply pair one adaptor. The batteries themselves have a capacity of 90 Wh, but we obviously can’t expect much if they look at the specifics.
All of this must certainly be redeemed at an expensive price when Dell began to market it on January 29. The low-priced variant is $2,549, which is a reasonable price for the device that can be compared as a laptop PC.
