CES 2016: Alienware 13 Gets a Beautiful OLED Display
CES 2016 has seen a number of firsts. From the world’s thinnest TV to the world’s first transparent display, the technological fest has seen it all. Now, Alienware has joined the league of firsts by unveiling the world’s first OLED gaming laptop.
Those familiar with OLED displays will know why this is a big deal for a gaming laptop. OLEDs offer deeper blacks since there’s no need for a backlight and lower latency. Alienware has claimed that its new Alienware 13 laptop will have a one millisecond refresh rate thanks to OLED.
The reason behind the delay to embrace OLED screens for gaming laptops is that OLED panels used to be expensive in larger sizes, but they are now affordable enough to be used by Alienware without having its laptops cost and exuberant amount.
The Alienware 13 will be priced similar to its Quad-HD display variant. The starting price of the OLED model is $1499 and the laptop is expected to launch mid-April.
