Earlier this week Dell confirmed that its recently launched Alienware-51M gaming notebook is available in South Africa from local distributor, Drive Control Corporation (DCC).

According to Dell (who owns Alienware), the Area-51 as it is dubbed, sports an Intel 9th Gen octa-core desktop processor, has up to 64GB RAM and 2.5bps ethernet functionality. There are a range of configuration options available on the Area-51M, with upgrades on features such as the CPU, RAM, storage and GPU.

“Gamers have long complained about the limited lifespan of a gaming laptop due to an inability to swap out the graphics card once a more powerful model hits the market. Area-51m ensures that gamers hardware never goes out of date,” says Dell EMC consumer product specialist at DCC, Heinrich Pretorius.

Some of the other notable features on the Area-51M include a 17.3″ screen, which has a narrow-bezel design with advanced thermal and cooling technology internally. It’s also packed with an array of gaming must-haves including the Tobii eye-tracking which sits and the latest Alienware Command Centre.

“The reimagined Alienware Legend design stays true to the brands core design tenets, taking cues from its deep roots in sci-fi culture and its early industrial aesthetic, to distinguish the brand from the rest of the industry,” explains Pretorius.Thermal and cooling technology to achieve and sustain overclocking power.

DCC is making the Area-51M available locally to the channel in two optional finishes – the Dark Side of the Moon and Lunar Light.
