Alienware M17x R4 Notebook Review

 

It's partytime! While Nvidia's Kepler flagship still keeps us waiting, AMD's new Radeon HD 7970M is seriously mixing up the gaming notebook segment. In combination with Intel's new Ivy Bridge processors, Alienware had enough reasons to refresh its...

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

AMD still seems incapable of finishing a decent GPU switching software

Alienware M17

 

The Alienware brand conjures images of powerful and elite computing hardware—think of the nearly invincible antagonist from the 1987 action flick, Predator. Alienware's M17 looks the part, but the unit we received for review was about as dangerous as E.T.

Hip finish, luscious display, cool backlit keyboard

Heavy, unimpressive gaming performance, terrible speakers

As configured, this Alienware M17 doesn’t serve any particular mission well: It’s too heavy for frequent road trips, it’s not powerful enough for hardcore gaming, and without a TV tuner or Blu-ray drive, it’s not much of a media system.
