The Alienware m15 R4 and Alienware m17 R4 laptops have been refreshed by Dell to include Cherry MX ultra low-profile mechanical keyboards, with lighting for each key. According to Dell, the new keyboards aim to be an extension of the gamers’ senses and allow you to press deeper with more emphasis. This mechanical switch provides a full 1.8 mm stroke of the keys in a self-cleaning mechanism. Its two-part keyboard structure and point-to-point contact system ensure precision and wobble without wobbling during intense virtual game sessions.
Many gamers prefer mechanical keyboards because they are more responsive and usually more durable. For some of us, the mechanical keyboard just feels better to use, plus the sound of the mechanical keyboard can also be good feedback. In addition to the change in keyboards, laptops still run on 10th generation Intel Core processors and offer up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 GPU support.
