Alienware 13 R3 OLED; VR Gaming Machine On The Go
You know that the display is going to be nice when you have OLED in the name of the device and yes, same is the case here as well. Alienware 13 R3 OLED features a very nice optional OLED display. Yes it is optional, you can opt not to have it but it will be worth it. The 13.3-inch, 2560 x 1440 touch panel is amazing to look at and immersive to game on. At 271 nits the screen of the Alienware 13 R3 OLED is very bright indeed and can easily beat the competition.
The Alienware 13 R3 OLED is one of the smallest VR ready machines on the market as of right now. It has the following features:
- 2.6-GHz Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor
- 16 GB RAM (Upgradable to 32 GB)
- GTX 1060 GPU
- 512 GB HDD
- Windows 10
The lid is mode up of Alienware’s Epic Gray anodized aluminum while the rest is made of magnesium alloy. There is a lack of lighting on the back, you only get the single illuminated Alien head. This is a good change as it shows a more mature look. Gives the company and the device a much grown up feel if you know what I am talking about.
The backlight keyboard seems to be an industrial design but you have the back-lit keys so not all is lost here. Some of the ports that you will find on the back of the Alienware 13 R3 OLED are as follows:
- Thunderbolt 3 port
- Mini DisplayPort
- Gigabit Ethernet
- Power jack
- Alienware’s proprietary port
Alienware devices have really great audio and somehow the company has improved the audio and made it even better in the Alienware 13 R3 OLED.
If you are looking for a small VR ready gaming laptop then the Alienware 13 R3 OLED could be a great solution for you. The device starts at $1,199. Pair this with an Oculus Rift or and HTC Vive and you are all ready to go.
