Alienware m15 R4 Cherry is the first gaming laptop to include the famous MX keys, although the excellent keyboard on the laptop is rare and mechanical boards are found.
The firm’s partnership with Cherry (called Project X) began three years ago and resulted in the MX switch shrinking to a size small enough to fit on the laptop’s chassis.
The height of the ultra-low profile MX wrench is only 3.5 mm, which is a big difference from the original 18.5 mm or even 11.8 mm low profile version. It has passed more than 160 prototypes and has mechanical components made of stainless steel
Inspired by the top-opening gull-winged doors of the popular DeLorean sports car, Alienware allows you to push the keyboard deeper with more emphasis, designing the keyboard as an extension of the player’s senses.
You get a full 1.8mm travel, and the self-cleaning mechanism has been tested for durability for 15 million keystrokes. It is also extremely sensitive thanks to a two-part key structure and a gold-based cross-point connection system.
Of course, Dell’s Alienware m14 R4 has more than just a keyboard. It has a 15.6-inch Full HD display with an update frequency of 144 or 300 Hz, if you don’t prefer the Ultra HD OLED model. It runs on Intel’s 10th generation processors and the graphics card is Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 3070 or 3080
It starts at £ 2,049 at the Dell store.
Along with the m15 R4, Alienware has updated the Dell XPS Desktop and Alienware Aurora R12 with Nvidia RTX 3000 series graphics cards. They will go on sale on March 25 for 899 pounds and on March 30 for 1201 pounds.
