Alienware M17x R3 Review


Now in its third iteration, the M17x continues to be an impressive looker and performer. We go hands-on with this 17.3-inch top-shelf gaming notebook. Is the Alienware M17x R3 the best buy for gamers?

Fantastic performance ; Unique design ; Excellent keyboard and touchpad ; Great speakers

Build quality not as good as old M17x ; Gets noisy under full load
