Alienware Graphics Card Dock
« on: October 27, 2014, 10:30:21 PM »
If you buy an Alienware 13 laptop, you will soon have the option to purchase a $300 graphics card dock that takes almost any desktop graphics card and uses it to play games. This has been done before with limited success and being that Alienware only has one model that will work with this proprietary cable at the moment (more coming soon), I don't suspect this will fly either. If they made this $300 box work with other machines; such as MSI, Razer and ASUS, they'd sell a ton of them.

   Sounds kinda rad, right? Right. Well, except for one teeny detail: This requires a proprietary, PCI-Express-based cable, one that only works on the new Alienware 13. According to a Dell spokesperson, future models will use the same connection port, but for now, even if you have an older Alienware machine you're outta luck. Of course, too, if you own a notebook from another brand, like Razer or ASUS, this will be of absolutely no use to you. Which makes sense: Dell wants to give people an incentive to buy Alienware laptops.Source: Engadget
