Alienware 14 review: PC gaming in a semiportable package

 

Dell's newAlienware 14offers great performance, competitive prices, and quirky features such as a backlit touch pad.

The new design still feels dated, and it's as thick as a few slim laptops stacked together. The fan is insanely loud.

Dell has revamped its gaming line, including the new Alienware 14. The design changes don't go nearly far enough, but no complaints about the performance.

Alienware 14 review

 

"There's a thousand thin notebooks out there. If you want one, there's plenty of options," says Alienware's Frank Azor. Here at E3, the company's announcing the first new industrial design for its laptops in four years... and yet where most firms are...

Fantastically fast for a 14-incher ; Killer optional 1080p IPS screen ; Great build quality

Thick slab-like design ; Sub-par battery life ; Software quirks

The welterweight extraterrestrial beefs up, in more ways than one

Alienware 14 Review

 

The Alienware 14 is a powerful portable gaming laptop with serious graphics punch and a slick redesign, but it gets toasty.

Slick design with customizable lighting; Powerful Intel Haswell processor; Outstanding graphics performance; Comfortable keyboard; Great audio quality

Relatively dim display; Runs hot while gaming

The Alienware 14 is a portable gaming notebook with a slick redesign and graphics might, but it runs hot under pressure.

Alienware 14 review

 

A hefty slice of gaming goodness

1080p screen ; Good processor choice ; Strong graphics ; 16GB of RAM ; Blu-ray drive

No SSD ; Heavy

This gaming laptop packs a wallop with Haswell and Nvidia GTX chips powering a 1080p panel. Portable PC gaming doesn't much better than this.

Alienware 14 gaming notebook (4th gen Core)

 

Get your game on with this beautiful 14in Alienware lappy

Sturdy construction ; Excellent performance ; Lovely lighting system

Its optical drive made some startling noises ; Graphics switching is a little cumbersome

The Alienware 14 supplies plenty of speed in a relatively small frame. It's mainly aimed at gamers, but even professionals who want a fast laptop should consider it.

Alienware 14 review

 

The Alienware brand dominates gaming laptops, but the latest addition to Dell's range isn't the huge, brash notebook you'd expect – it's got a 14in screen, and it looks fantastic. See: The 7 best gaming laptops of 2013.

Alienware's designers have done a great job tempering the excesses of traditional gaming laptops with good looks and matte aluminium, and the Alienware 14 doesn't just look great – it shifts, too. The quad-core processors puts paid to applications, and...

A 14.1in gaming laptop that has it all; stunning design, more lights than you can shake a stick at, great ergonomics, and oodles of power under the hood.

Beautiful design in red or black, Individually controllable light zones, Lovely soft-touch finish and excellent build, Good screen, impressive speakers, Lots of configuration flexibility

Noisy under load, Expensive, Relatively underpowered graphics, No Blu-ray drive option
