Yes, I actually got one a year after it was released :3 But as a mac person who’s been using mid tier mac computers, the Alienware 14 is currently my most powerful rig.
It’s more powerful 13-inch brother was announced 3 days after I got my com, which is kinda annoying but, oh well. For those waiting to get a REAL portable alienware laptop, the wait is finally here 😀
Anyway, lets go to the unboxing part – more pics and less words!
Long-time alienware users would be disappointed if they look at these. They used to get a baseball cap, a mousepad, a leather-cased owner manual.
Some pictures with my Macbook Air
Let’s boot it up
The lighting design looks more refined from what its predecessors had. Rather than just being a gamer-centric laptop, it might actually present itself as a multimedia workhorse/companion for graphic designers or video editors
In case you’re wondering what specifications did I get for my laptop. I chose the entry level model in the Singapore Online Store and upgraded what can’t be upgraded after my purchase, such as processor and graphics. I upgraded the RAM in-store too as it’s cheaper than buying a pair of 8Gb RAM on my own.
– Intel Core i7-4700MQ
– 1920 x1080 IPS Display
– 16 GB DDR3L (2x8Gb)
– 500 GB 5400RPM SSHD (8Gb SSD built-in)
– NVidia GeForce GTX 765M with 2Gb GDDR5
I didn’t upgrade the hard drive as I had already planned to replace it with SSD 🙂
On my next post, I’ll cover the upgrading process (with lots of pics too, of course!)
When purchasing a dell computer online, make sure to chat with a sales representative or call the hotline to get better pricing.
For those who noticed the 2nd box (on my 2nd picture). it’s a freebie from Dell.
