Introducing the most luxurious Alienware yet, the first-ever x16
X Series laptops are designed for gamers who expect their Alienware laptop to complement every aspect of their lifestyle, including beyond gaming. They want a more portable companion that can be taken with them wherever life leads yet demands supreme performance to match. To address both of these needs, we pull deeper from engineering’s bag of tricks to architect the most aggressive designs possible. As our flagship brand, X Series serves as our innovation portal, bringing many technology breakthroughs in addition to elevating premium materials, finishes, and features to the forefront of the product experience.
The new Alienware x16 is our first 16″ gaming laptop since 2004 and our most premium Alienware product yet. It answers the debate on whether to buy a 15-inch or 17-inch gaming laptop by pinpointing a sweet spot between both sizes. Promising more performance, a taller 16:10 display, and an improved six-speaker design, the new x16 bests our current x17 in almost every way and does so in a sleeker and more robust full-metal chassis. Everything you hear, see, and feel is on another level.
Built with top-firing tweeters for clarity and a dual woofer configuration for strong bass, x16 creates a spatial audio experience with its 6-speaker audio. With Dolby Atmos, you will experience rich, layered sound that reveals depth, clarity, and details like never before, bringing your entertainment to life.
Complimented by our best AlienFX experience, x16 now boasts 100 micro-LEDs (touting 50 individual lighting zones!) on the rear stadium and is the first Alienware laptop enhanced with new AlienFX Scanner, Loop and Rainbow lighting mods. Additionally, our illuminated RGB touchpad is now 15% larger (than the one found on the x17 R2). Finally, we continue to offer per-key RGB keyboard lighting with optional CHERRY MX mechanical keys to complete our most dynamic and customizable lighting experience to date, all controllable via Alienware Command Center.

Note: An RTX 4080 laptop GPU is not equivalent or does not perform similarly to an RTX 4080 desktop GPU. Instead, the RTX 4080 laptop GPU performs similarly or a bit faster than an RTX 4070 or 3080 desktop GPU. Nevertheless, it is still an excellent laptop GPU for a QHD+ resolution.
