The quintessential college dorm room is relatively small with blah cinder block walls and a pair of twin beds. And since this spartan space is going to be your home for the next year (or more), you may as well make it as comfortable as possible. If you’re a tech nerd, that means geeking out your new living quarters with some of the latest and greatest gadgets around. From super powered gaming laptops to TV’s that you can control with your smartphone, we searched high and low for the tech that will make your hallmates jealous. Just remember to leave your room on occasion.
Any properly teched-out dorm room is going to need a super-powered PC, and the Alienware 18 fits that description perfectly. This 18-inch gaming rig sports a gorgeous 1080p display, powerful 2.8-GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, 32GB of RAM and both a 512GB SSD and 750GB hard drive. We also love the customizable lighting. But the pièce de résistance is the system's dual Nvidia GTX 780M graphics cards, each of which pack 4GB of video RAM.
With that kind of firepower, you'll be a gaming god among mere mortals. And, of course, it will run Microsoft Office.
