The Alienware m15 with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 is coming in early 2019
Although the Alienware m15 has 5 hardware configurations to choose from right now, all come with the Intel Core i7-8750H processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 and GTX 1070 Max-Q graphics. The latest model added sports 32 GB of memory and a pair of 1 TB PCIe M.2 SSDs, but it does not come cheap at all and carries a price tag of US$3,890.59 (discounted from US$3,974.99).
Frank Azor has just made it clear for those waiting for news about the promised GTX 1080 configuration. Alienware's co-founder and VP General Manager posted the following message on Twitter: "About 60 days is the soonest we will be ready with new top end configs."
These being said, we should get ready for next year's Alienware m15 updates. Obviously, this means that some of those interested in the high-end setup should plan their finances accordingly since it would not be surprising to see the most expensive configuration easily break the US$4,000 barrier. However, it would not be surprising to see the Intel Core i5 + GTX 1060 model becoming Alienware's new best-seller — if it comes with a budget-friendly price, of course.
