Dell has just taken the wraps off its new Alienware 13 laptop, which seems to be quite the improvement over the Alienware 14 from last year. We start with a 13-inch HD display, that can be optioned with either a Full HD display, or Quad HD (touchscreen-capable) display if you choose.
Inside of the Alienware 13, we have an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M handling the visual side of things, and a slew of Intel Core processors to do the CPU side of things. Gamers can choose between an SSD and normal HDD in the Alienware 13, too. The company is touting an 8-hour battery life for streaming video, but if you want to get some gaming done, this will reduce, dramatically.
All of this arrives in a laptop that is under 4.5 pounds, which is a huge 2 pounds lighter than the Alienware 14. Dell expects to begin shipping the new Alienware 13 sometime in November.
