We are sure that everyone has had a great festive season and hope you have all made New Year’s resolutions that you hope to stick to. Back at Gadget Buddies HQ we have decided to leaner and meaner this year, by getting rid on chunky devices that take up a lot of room. Now we all know that to play most modern PC games requires a monster computer rig with loads of equipment inside, including a cooling system to protect your investment.
In 2015 it’s all about reducing the clutter. We saw how computer chips became smaller last year, all the way to the 5 rand coin sized Intel Edison processor and how laptops started packing greater power. 2014 was a great year and has definitely laid the foundation for 2015 to be better!
We recently got our hands onto an Alienware gaming laptop. Now Alienware make very specific hardware that really requires a fundi to enjoy them and to think that their parent company is Dell. The latest is the Alienware 17 and boy does it pack a punch. What is even more appreciated is that Dell has made the laptop slimmer, something that was not visible in previous models.
The Alienware 17 is equipped with an i7 processor and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 980M graphics card. They have also gone for an all HD 17 inch LED Display and Dolby 5.1 sound. Basically if you into gaming with the occasional work sessions, this is the laptop for you. We tried out Uncharted 4 on it and were blown away by its performance, while playing on full detail.
