Review Alienware M11x R3 Gaming Notebook

 

It´s about time. It was only a question of time before Alienware

Sehr schnell für seine Größe; Hochwertige Materialien; Exzellente Akkulaufzeit; Schicke Beleuchtung; Gute Eingabegeräte; Schnittiges Design; Grafikumschaltung; Flotte Festplatte

Spiegelndes Display mit mäßigem Schwarzwert; Hohe Geräuschentwicklung unter Last; Ungünstige Anschluss- anordnung; CPU-Throttling unter Volllast

Above all else the older revisions of the M11x. Other than these the choice of less expensive high performance subnotebooks is very limited (e.g. Acer Aspire 3820TG).

Review Alienware M11x Subnotebook

 

The Midget amongst the Gamers. Until now, Alienware has rather be

Chic design; Excellent workmanship; Extensive lighting; Quite a lot of connections; Fairly good application and gaming performance; Long battery life; Good input devices; Fast hard disk

Reflective, poor luminosity and sensitive display; A weak CPU in comparison to the graphic card; Wrist-rest gets warm; Noisy under load; Screwed battery

There aren't actually any. The Alienware M11x has cleverly settled into a market niche - that of the currently rather thinly equipped gaming capable notebooks.

Dell Alienware M11X Gaming Laptop

 

Alienware gaming notebooks are known for their rugged build, powerful hardware, excellent performance, and the most popular belief, their exorbitant price tags. Now, the new Alienware gaming notebook offers all of this, but at a comparatively...

Alienware M11x Review

 

The terms petite and gaming notebook are about as incongruous as self-restraint and Wall Street, so our curiosity about Alienware's M11x was naturally mixed with skepticism. Could this sub–five pound, 11-inch rig do much more than play aged or anemic...

Uberportability, robust gaming, and long battery life in one kick-ass package

No optical drive; no Express Card; old-school hybrid graphics solution

Frankly, we’re amazed at Alienware’s accomplishment. Are there sacrifices? Sure. The biggest being the lack of an optical drive. But all things considered, that seems a fair trade for an otherwise thoroughly outfitted ultraportable that can actually...

Alienware M11x R3 Review

 

The Alienware M11x R3 is the third version of the world's smallest and lightest gaming notebook. Equipped with your choice of second generation Intel Core i5 or Core i7 processors and Nvidia GeForce GT 540M graphics, this high-performance 11-inch...

Best-in-class gaming performance ; Fantastic battery life ; LED-backlit keyboard ; Durable build quality

Heavy for an 11-inch laptop ; Cooling fan sounds like a hair dryer ; Lackluster screen and no alternative screen options ; Expensive compared to previous version

As we mentioned at the beginning of this review, the Alienware M11x is a laptop that is essentially in a class all by itself. Although there are many 11-inch netbook alternatives on the market, none of them come close to delivering the gaming...

Alienware M11x R3

 

A second-generation Core i5 processor and beefier graphics make the Alienware M11x R3 one powerful gaming ultraportable.

Like its predecessors, the third-generation Alienware M11x offers equal parts style, gaming prowess, and portability. As the only true gaming notebook under 13 inches, the M11x is a must-have for anyone who needs a lightweight notebook that's capable...

Alienware M11x (spring 2011)

 

Last year, we were extremely bullish about the Alienware M11x. The 11.6-inch ultraportable laptop offered a unique blend of compact size and performance, particularly in terms of graphics, a reasonable price. At the time, it was without equal in its...

This year's version of the Alienware M11x has markedly improved graphics performance and battery life, and the laptop's solid build, USB 3.0 ports, and impressive 5.1 surround-sound Klipsch speakers are also pluses

The M11x still has a chunky chassis; also, the lack of an optical drive isn't a dealbreaker, but can be frustrating when installing games

Don't be fooled by its unchanged looks: the 2011 Alienware M11x makes big leaps forward in performance, graphics, and battery life, while keeping a reasonable price. Anyone looking for a portable gaming-ready laptop will have a hard time resisting the...

Alienware M11x (second revision)

 

In my review of the original Alienware M11x, I called the system a revelation for gamers: Finally, here was an ultraportable laptop with enough muscle to play the latest games at good quality and performance levels and without worrying about anemic...

Fantastic performance ; AlienFX customizable lighting

Reduced battery life from first revision ; Display has poor vertical viewing angles

A boost to the internal hardware gives the second revision of the M11x substantially stronger performance, but battery life takes a hit.
