Alienware M17x R4 Notebook Review

 

It's partytime! While Nvidia's Kepler flagship still keeps us wai

Excellent Performance; Many lighting elements; Convincing Full HD display; Good input devices; Good Workmanship; Very fast GPU; Gummed surfaces; Rich selection of accessories; Great selection of connectors; Good sound quality; Simple to service

AMD's GPU auto-switching is poor; The plastic display cover causes extreme reflections.; High weight

Massive desktop replacements like the Asus G75V, the MSI GT70, the One M73-2N or the Schenker XMG P702 PRO.

The Power of Serenity Alienware and gaming - evidently always a s

Attractive design; Good workmanship; Very stable, high-quality case; Individualization possible; High image contrast and good color representation; Very good application and 3D performance; Low system noise in office mode possible

Heavy weight; Adverse port distribution for lefties; High surcharge for warranty extension; Mediocre display illumination; Price

Competitors? Which competitors could be named here? Various plastic buckets from the far east? Definitely not. Even if they might have a comparable hardware. The Asus W90 may just eventually have had the potential, but this wasn't exhausted.

Alienware M17x R4 review

 

Alienware has been flying the flag for gamers for a while now. While its hardware isn't exactly cheap, for those serious about PC gaming, it is one of the go-to brands.

Performance, build quality, connectivity

Screen, price, size and weight

A very good gaming laptop, but the base model the screen lets it down.

Alienware M17x R4 review

 

The Alienware M17x R4 is Dell's Ivy Bridge refresh of its popular Alienware M17x gaming laptop. This new M17x keeps the aesthetics of the old M17x, and packs a new processor and graphics card.

This particular refresh of the Alienware M17x R4 is... well, refreshing. The new Ivy Bridge processor and Kepler-based Nvidia graphics card offer up great performance, and the entire system costs under £2,000 - a pretty good deal for a gaming-oriented...

Perfect laptop.

 

I actually expanded the 8 gb ram to 16 gb ram, but it was only because I like more ram on my laptop....Its the best lap ive ever own, a good option for playing the both roles, in 1 (desktop and laptop). It really worth the price.
