Alienware has updated its 13-inch Alienware 13 notebook by equipping it with Nvidia's Geforce GTX 1060 with 6GB of VRAM, making it both VR Ready and giving it a significant boost in graphics performance.

Starting at US $1,199.99, the Alienware 13 is built around a 13.3-inch screen and at this price, you'll get 13.3-inch HD 1366x768 TN screen, Intel's Skylake quad-core Core i5-6300HQ CPU clocked at 2.3GHz base and 3.2GHz Turbo, 8GB of RAM, 180GB M.2 SATA 6GBps SSD storage and Alienware HD+IR presence detection camera, which is a standard on all models, same as the GTX 1060 with 6GB of GDDR5 memory.

As was the case with most Alienware notebooks, the new Alienware 13 can be upgraded and taken over US $2,099.99 quite easily. The upgrade options include 13.3-inch FHD 1920x1080 IPS screen or high-end 13.3-inch QHD 2560x1440 OLED anti-glare touchscreen, Intel Core i7-6700HQ quad-core CPU, up to 32GB of DDR4 memory and up to 2TB of PCIe SSD storage  - 1TB for Boot and 1TB for storage.

Compared to its predecessor, the new Alienware 13 is both thinner (22mm) and lighter (2.6kg) and comes with the new Alienware TactX keyboard with 4-zone multi-color RGB AlienFX lighting. It also comes with a couple of USB 3.0 Type-A and Type-C ports as well as both Thunderbolt 3 port (USB Type-C) and dedicated Alienware Graphics Amplifier Port.

The new Alienware 13 is certainly an ultimate small gaming notebook that can be further beefed up with Alienware's external graphics box, the Graphics Amplifier, but as always, such things come with a hefty price tag.
