This laptop’s performance is also helped by high capacity system memory. It’s already come with 32GB of DDR4 SDRAM. There are two storage drives inside, a hard drive with a capacity of 1TB and an SSD with a capacity of 256GB. As for display, the device features a 15.6 inches display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The display looks pretty good thanks to IPS technology and 300-nit brightness, with the high-end GPU and G-SYNC technology make the graphics even smoother.
The Dell AW15R3-7920SLV-PUS is full of ports. There is a DC-in jack, an RJ-45 port, a USB 3.0 Type-C port, two USB 3.0 Type-A ports, an Alienware Graphics Amplifier port, a Thunderbolt 3 port, an HDMI 2.0 port, a Mini-Display Port 1.2 port, a 1/8″ audio-out jack, and a 1/8″ headphone/microphone combo.

The so-called Alienware TactX keyboard has 4-zone, multi-color RGB with AlienFX lighting controls. There are 5 user-programmable macro keys that could be very useful for repeating same actions while playing your favorite games. To provide stable connection, the manufacturer equips it with Killer Networks e2400 10/100/1000Mbps and Killer 1435 802.11ac 2×2 Wi-Fi with Bluetooth 4.1 combo. On audio side, it comes with 2.0 speaker configuration and 7.1 digital audio out support using HDMI out connection.

With those high-end specs, it can deliver impressive performance for enjoyable gaming experience. However it weighs 7.69 lbs, makes it rather uncomfortable for some people if they need to bring it. Another downside is the display resolution (FHD) is not attractive especially for an expensive laptop.
