Alienware

Dell has introduced new versions of its Alienware 15 R4 and Alienware 17 R5 gaming notebooks, which now feature new keyboards with customizable per-key lighting. The systems rely on Intel’s Coffee Lake processors and their only difference from predecessors is the new keyboard. Starting this Fall, Dell’s Alienware 15 R4 MLK and Alienware 17 R5 MLK laptops will be equipped with new TactX keyboards featuring RGB LEDs and supporting n-key rollover for more than 100 key commands. The keyboards also feature 2.2 mm key travel in a bid to provide a very rapid keystroke response. The Alienware 15 R4 MLK and Alienware 17 R5 MLK notebooks are based on Intel’s quad-core or six-core processors outfitted with AMD’s Radeon RX 570 or NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1060/1070/1080 GPUs...
