Since some think that an Intel Core i5 processor would be enough for their new gaming notebook, it seems that Alienware's latest machine will soon get new hardware options. Frank Azor has just confirmed that an i5+ GeForce GTX 1060 configuration for the Alienware m15 should arrive in about two months.

The new Alienware m15 only comes with an Intel Core i7-8750H processor for now, but — fortunately for those who have been asking about it — the Intel Core i5 will soon be added to the list of hardware options for this gaming notebook. Since this will come with a GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card, the performance drop in full HD resolution will probably be barely noticeable in most titles.

As usual, Frank Azor was really quick to answer a new Alienware-related question on Twitter, but this time he also came up with a rather accurate date. When asked about the plans for an i5 + GTX 1060 Alienware m15, his reply was the following: "Yes, we will be launching a few more configs in about 60 days. These are just our initial configs for now."

The four Alienware m15 models available right now come in Epic Silver and Nebula Red, but only one configuration that has a price tag of more than US$2,000 can be acquired in red. Let us hope that more color options — or at least the availability of the Nebula Red choice for the low-end configurations — will be taken into consideration by Frank Azor and the Alienware team as well.

If you still have any special wishes regarding the changes that Alienware should work on for the m15, please drop them in the comments section and we will try to find out if they can become reality or not.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
