Virtual reality gaming appears to be the way of the future, but unfortunately to power a VR headset like the Oculus Rift or the HTC Vive requires some serious hardware. The good news for those of you lazy to build your own rig is that Dell’s Alienware division has announced a trio of new laptops that they claim are VR ready.
Now these laptops come in a variety of sizes, with the smallest being the Alienware 13. This laptop can be configured to fit NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 10-series graphics, meaning that if you value portability and mobility, then the 13-inch Alienware 13 is the laptop for you. However for those hankering after something a bit bigger, there is the Alienware 15 and 17 for you.
With the Alienware 15, it will sport a 15.6-inch Full HD display and will also be able to support the GeForce GTX 1060 GPU, but if you have the extra cash to splash, then the Alienware 17 is essentially the cream of the crop. This is Alienware’s flagship laptop and will support overclocked Intel Core i7 processor. There is also support for the optional IR Tobii eye-tracking technology to help enhance your gaming experience.
Unfortunately pricing for either of these laptops remains a mystery, but given what we know about Alienware’s laptops and seeing some of these specs, don’t expect them to come cheap. The Alienware 15 and 17 will be available in the US come 30th September, while the Alienware 13 will arrive in November.
