With a lighter and thinner design than the Alienware 13, the new Alienware m15 is the brand's most compact gaming notebook so far. Frank Azor has just confirmed that this new machine for gamers on the go will hit the market on October 25, just as expected. The starting price will be US$1,300, but high-end SKUs are expected to hit US$2,000.

Although the Dell XPS 15 9550 with an InfinityEdge display which the company describes as "virtually borderless" has been around since 2015, Alienware did not move into this realm until the recently unveiled m15 notebook. Now, the Alienware m15 is ready to hit the market and — as confirmed by Frank Azor — those who were waiting for its October 25 arrival will not be disappointed, at least if they are living in the US.

The aforementioned confirmation was made by Alienware's co-founder and VP General Manager as usual, via Twitter. When asked about the availability of the m15, he only replied "10/25 in USA," so those in Europe and other continents will have to wait for a confirmation as well. However, we think that the Alienware m15 should reach them by the end of the year as well, although some markets could also receive it next year.

The Alienware m15 will have to face quite a few competitors that have been around for a few months already, such as the MSI GS65, Razer Blade 15, or the Lenovo Legion Y530. This machine will hit the market in gray and red color options, starting at US$1,300. Its processor options will be the Intel Core i5-8300H and i7-8750H, while the video cards to choose from will be the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 and GTX 1070 Max-Q.

We will get back to the Alienware m15 models available at launch next week, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
