Computex 2019 is in full swing and Alienware and Dell Gaming have announced updated gaming laptops, peripherals, and more. In addition to updates to their Alienware and Dell Gaming lineups, the company has also unveiled a new Eyesafe Display and debuted their Dell Home Installation Services.

“Gamers across the globe have high expectations from Alienware and Dell when it comes to our gaming products and without a doubt our latest announcements will exceed even the highest of expectations out there. To get to this point it has taken over two decades of uncompromising commitment to gamers, the collaboration of an incredibly talented and devoted team, and an ever-expanding group of top-tier partners.”

Frank Azor, vice-president, and general manager of Alienware, G Series, and XPS at Dell

Let’s take a look at the list of new gaming-related announcements from the company.

Eyesafe® Display

Before we get into the gaming laptop updates, Dell has introduced a next generation Eyesafe® Display in the Dell G7 17 and Alienware m17 gaming laptops. The new display reduces blue light while maintaining colour accuracy — something which tends to get skewed when you reduce blue light.

The new display uses both software and hardware adjustments to protect your eyes from harmful blue light. In addition, the new technology can reduce dry, irritated eyes, blurred vision, reduced attention span, and trouble sleeping which can arise from extended computer and blue light exposure.

Alienware

The Alienware m15 and m17 gaming laptops, designed from the ground up, are now thinner and lighter than ever before. The updated systems feature Alienware’s new design ID, Legend, and are available with 9th generation Intel Core mobile CPUs, NVIDIA GTX 16 and 20 series GPUs, and new display technology.
