"More consumers are embracing OLED graphics in televisions and smartphones, with self-lighting pixels that can switch off completely to achieve perfect black for significantly higher contrast," Alienware told us. The Alienware 13 has been designed via a partnership with Samsung, and rocks a 100,000:1 contrast ratio and a lightning fast 1ms response time.

It starts at $1399, and it's probably worth a look if you need an attractive gaming notebook that's also built like a tank, though we sincerely wish it rocked a GTX 970. It currently tops out at a GTX 965M with 4GB of VRAM. Bonus points though: Hook up an Alienware Graphics Amplifier and it's VR-Ready!

Alienware 13 with OLED display options include:

• 6th Generation Intel Core i5 and i7 CPUs

• Graphics options include NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M with 2GB up to the GeForce GTX 965M with 4GB

• 8GB Dual Channel DDR3L memory configurable up to 16GB
