Alienware has launched a laptop version of the Area 51, it is called the Area 51m. Dubbed as the “world’s most powerful gaming laptop”, the Area 51m is a desktop disguised as a laptop. Dell chooses the name Area 51 after its desktop-specific brand because of the desktop-level components inside the laptop.

The 9th-gen Intel CPU and 20-series overclockable Nvidia GPU are both modular, which means the components of the laptop are upgradeable like a PC. The Area 51m is Alienware’s first laptop to 8-core processor, 2.5Gbit Ethernet and 64 GB of RAM.

The Area 51m solves the fundamental problem gamers have with respect to buying a laptop: unlike their desktop counterparts, the gaming laptops become obsolete after a certain amount of time. No matter how high-end gaming laptop you buy, nearly all laptops fade into obsolescence after a few years. Since laptops don’t allow users to upgrade the crucial parts like CPU and graphics card, they tend to become unable to run the latest games that keep popping up every year.

With the Area 51m however, that is not the case.

The Area 51m solves this issue by depending on desktop PC markets for its components. It essentially is a desktop only with a screen, a battery and a keyboard built-in. The most interesting part of this laptop is that it allows you to swap not only the hard drive, RAM and battery but also the CPU and GPU, which makes it a close competition to desktop PCs.

Alienware has designed this laptop in a way that lets users take this thing apart just like they would a PC. The laptop comes in with easily removable screws and labeled guides imprinted into the frame to let users disassemble and reassemble the device on their own.

Alienware is offering the Area 51m with Intel’s 9th Gen i7-8700, i7-9700K, or i9-9900K, which is the fastest gaming CPU money can buy. In terms of graphics, the laptop comes packed with up to a GeForce RTX 2080—the best GPU in the market right now.

The Area 51m starts at $2000(₹1,40,000 approximately) and the prices may increase with better configurations.

Some of the key specifications include:

  • Alienware TactX keyboard with 2.2mm travel and per-key RGB LED lighting
  • CPU options: Intel Core i7-8700 (six-core), Core i7-9700K (eight-core), Core i9-9900HK (eight-core)
  • GPU options: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060, GeForce RTX 2070, GeForce RTX 2080
  • 8GB to 64GB DDR4 RAM
  • Single, dual and triple storage options, from 256GB to 3TB
  • 10/100/1000/2.5Gbps RJ-45 Ethernet, Killer Wireless 1550 2×2 AC, Bluetooth 5.0
