The PC gaming experience goes through the keyboard: that is why it is important that the quality of this medium is high. In fact, not all gaming keyboards are the same. Alienware, through the collaboration started three years ago with CHERRY MX, can announce today the birth of its Alienware m15 R4 and Alienware m17 R4 notebooks with ultra-low profile mechanical keyboard.
The common goal was to create the experience of a mechanical keyboard and reduce it to a laptop form factor, something that had never been done before. It is not an easy task, but it has brought the advantages of a mechanical keyboard to mobile PC gaming, offering the necessary advantage to dominate the virtual battle arenas.
After experimenting with a series of material and mechanical changes on more than 160 prototypes, Alienware and Cherry MX have jointly developed a 3.5mm ultra-low profile design that incorporates stainless steel mechanical components for an experience like no other. Inspired by the upward-opening gull-wing doors of the iconic DeLorean sports car, the goal was to design the keyboard to be an extension of the gamer’s senses and allow deeper pressing with greater emphasis.
This original mechanical switch offers a complete 1.8mm key set in a self-cleaning mechanism tested for 15 million keystrokes per key. In addition to its durability, you can count on consistent and precise performance, with its two-piece key construction and gold-based cross-point contact system ensuring absolute precision and wobble-free keystrokes. All of this was accomplished without resizing the thinnest Alienware notebooks to date.
Gamers will also get incredibly responsive tactile feedback with full height keys that provide light activation force and distinct acoustics with each click. In addition to protecting the keyboard with a 100% working anti-ghosting system and key replacement, gamers can optimize their laptops with fully programmable keys for macro key assignments and per-key RGB backlighting AlienFX with up to 16.8 million. brightly colored.
The slim and powerful Alienware m15 and m17 offer an impressive range of specifications including 10th Gen Intel Core mobile processors and even the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 laptop GPU for powerful gaming. The laptops are also equipped with hyper-efficient voltage regulation technology to extend long-term performance, up to 4TB of storage, a micro-SD card reader, and Thunderbolt 3 that can charge PDs quickly.
