Our distinctive Element 31 thermal interface supplies and CPU vapor chamber know-how use the part changes of liquid to shortly dissipate heat. Smart followers and the temperature of the processor could be managed by way of the Alienware Command Center.

The Alienware X14 consists of an 80 Whr lithium-ion battery that isn’t solely crucial battery found on any 14-inch laptop computer pc wherever however as well as solves the issue of shoppers dropping vitality and entry whereas being on the go.
