Tiny Alienware packs VR-pushing power


That pink trackpad is bit zingy, isn’t it? And yet, remarkably, it’s sitting on top of a gaming architecture designed so that you won’t be able to see it. Because you’ll have a VR headset on. Because the Alienware 13 – despite being a comparatively diminutive 13in screened, 2.6kg laptop – has an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card powerful enough to run a HTC Vive or Oculus Rift VR headset.

When we think of a “VR-ready PC”, we always imagine some hulking, steaming beast of a desktop. With a fish-filled liquid cooling system of some kind. And yet, here’s this thing that could fit in a tote bag, crunching the same numbers. Remarkable. And there’s more!

Throw your Rift into a motherfishing hedge, because the top dog 13, starting at $US2099, has a 2K OLED screen. Crispier than a liquid nitro choc-ice and contrastier than a bucket of hummingbirds, it’ll be the one to have if you can afford it. Though there are a selection of other Alienware 13 models, starting at $US1199 for one with a 1366×768 LCD and Core i5.

Which still comes with the GTX guns and, yep, that pink trackpad.
