Series:

That's it: high-end hardware, a gorgeous new alien spaceship design and customizable flashy lights. With pre-installed Windows 7, the Alienware 14 is a portable gaming delight. It’s covered in anodized aluminum on the outside and soft touch coating on the inside, giving the keyboard and palm rests a luxurious feel. The touch pad is backlit: a nice design touch and practical for low light use. This 14 inch laptop weighs bulky 3 kg, which is light considering the power it packs.

Its 1920x1080 resolution, anti-glare LED display produces brilliant colors. You rarely see such in machines of this size. The machine was built for gaming, and handles graphics on higher settings like a dream with stunning graphics rendering powered by the Nvidia GeForce GTX 765M with 2 GB of dedicated video memory. The display is surprisingly dim, which might improve darker images. The machine is driven by an 2.4-GHz quad-core Intel Haswell Core i7-4700MQ processor (customizable as Dell products). It's lightning fast, and the battery even lasts a decent 5 hours with light use. One major downside is how hot the machine runs during gaming. But for what it is, and everything that it achieves, the Alienware 14 is a beauty that cannot be beat.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M: Upper mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GT 700M series. Based on the Kepler architecture and manufactured by TSMC in a 28nm process.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


4700MQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14.0":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
