Alienware Area-51m Review: Newly Designed, Thin Gaming Laptop / Up to 64GB Memory / Advanced Cooling Technology

You’ve probably noticed that laptops have been getting thinner and lighter in the last couple of years. This is true for even gaming laptops, including the new Alienware Area-51m, which is sleeker than many previous Alienware laptops and comes in dual color options, such as “Dark Side of the Moon” and “Lunar Light”. This is a laptop with the power of a desktop, and it’s the first of the Alienware series to feature eight-core / 16-thread processors.

Regardless of which color you choose, you’ll find that the model comes with a narrow bezel, bold lighting with “AlienFX”, a premium magnesium alloy shell, and “honeycomb design”, which is a new thermal pattern that features hexagonal vents. These hexagonal vents are designed to help enhance airflow for keeping the system cool during gameplay.

There is also Advanced Alienware Cyro-Tech v 2.0 technology to help optimize component cooling, a high-voltage driving fan, and a dual-intake / dual-exhaust fan. Copper fin stacks offer best “in-class” surface temperatures, primarily due to a thermal module. Heat is always drawn away from the important components to prioritize the performance longevity of the system.

Alienware Area-51m Configurations

What about the specs? The Alienware Area-51m is available with several configurations, ranging literally thousands of dollars from the cheapest model to the most advanced.
