Alienware m15 R4 and m17 R4 with CHERRY MX Ultra-Low Profile Mechanical Keys is available in Malaysia now, price from RM399

In case if you didn’t know, Alienware and German switch maker, CHERRY MX, has collaborated for the world’s first Gaming Laptop with CHERRY MX Ultra-Low Profile Mechanical Keys. Debuting on the new Alienware m15 R4 and Alienware m17 R4, it is now available for Malaysia as an add-on CHERRY MX keyboard configuration.

According to Alienware, the partnership with CHERRY MX (aka Project X) began over three years ago. After experimenting 160+ prototypes, Alienware and Cherry MX co-developed a 3.5mm ultra-low-profile design that incorporates stainless-steel mechanical components for an experience like no other. Inspired by the upward-opening gull-wing doors of the iconic DeLorean sports car, the goal was to engineer the keyboard to be an extension of the gamer’s senses and allow you to press deeper with more emphasis.

This original mechanical switch delivers a full 1.8mm of key travel in a self-cleaning mechanism tested for 15 million keystrokes per key. Along with its durability, you can count on consistent and accurate performance, with its two-piece keycap structure and gold-based cross-point contact system ensuring absolute precision and wobble-free keystrokes. All of this was accomplished without changing the dimensions of Alienware’s thinnest notebooks to date.

On top of all this, gamers will achieve incredibly responsive and tactile feedback with full-height keys that provide light actuation force and distinct acoustics at each click. In addition to keeping the keyboard safe from freezing up with 100% anti-ghosting and NKRO, gamers can optimise their notebooks with fully programmable keys for macro key assignments and AlienFX per-key RGB backlighting with up to 16.8 million brilliant colour.

The thin and powerful Alienware m15 and m17 offer a range of impressive specs including 10th Generation Intel Core mobile processors and up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU and for powerful gameplay. The laptops also come with HyperEfficient Voltage Regulation technology to extend performance for the long haul, up to 2TB of storage, a micro-SD card reader, and Thunderbolt 3 capable of PD fast charging. It will cost an additional RM399 and RM499 for the CHERRY MX keyboard configuration on the Alienware m15 and m17, respectively. Both the Alienware m15 and m17 are available now on
