Because 14 inches is the new 15 inches, the highlight of Alienware’s thinner-in-the-X-series gaming laptops for 2022 is the brand new x14, seen as CES 2022, There are also refreshed versions of the larger models, the x15 R2 and X17 R2; up to all included 12th-Gen Intel i9-12900HK CPUs and new Nvidia 30 Ti-Series GPU (Though the options depend on the size of the laptop). They also feature a new stain-resistant finish on the cover, which is good, because white.

The series is set to ship within the next month or two. The X14 starts at $1,799, the x15 R2 at $2,199 and the X17 R2 at $2,299 US ($1,799 is approximately £1,330 or AU$2,485).

Note that I don’t say it’s light: One problem I have with the X Series is that they’re deceptively heavy. The x14 weighs 4 pounds (1.89 kg), despite its 14-inch, 0.6-inch (14.5 mm) size. This is due to the cooling required to fit the discrete GPU in that chassis, but to me the weight is more important than an extra millimeter of thickness. However, it doesn’t sacrifice ports, and even includes a microSD card slot.

The X14 notably maxes out on the RTX 3060 and Core i7-12900H, but it supports Nvidia’s Advanced Optimus (which has better juggling whether the display is using integrated graphics or discrete) than the plain-old Optimus. GPU) and an FHD 144Hz display that is G-Sync compatible.

This 14-inch gaming laptop is 14.5mm thick.

You also get support for dual-channel LPDDR5 memory and Dolby Atmos surround sound.

But I think my favorite variation for the line is the new, far less bulky and heavier power brick. It’s the same broad, reasonably lightweight design of the XPS line and charges the laptop via USB-C, at least, for the X14.
