Alienware m17 R4 Review


Stellar performance with Core i9 and GeForce RTX 3080 in our test configuration ; Unique, satisfying Cherry MX mechanical keyboard ; Scads of configuration options, including 360Hz display ; Plenty of ports

Pricey as configured, in line with field-leading speed ; Poor battery life ; Hefty power brick

Given its feature set and premium price, the Alienware m17 R4 is an aspirational laptop for serious gamers. Its blazing frame rates, quality build, and unique mechanical keyboard set it apart from the pack.

Alienware m17 R4 review


The Alienware m17 R4 just leveled up with Cherry MX keys

Excellent graphics and overall performance ; Clicky, comfortable mechanical keyboard ; Beautiful, bright display with super high refresh rate ; Lightning-fast SSD ; Attractive design

Expensive ; Subpar battery life

The Alienware m17 R4 continues to up its games, adding a Cherry MX ultra-low profile keyboard to its already impressive specs.

Unrivaled performance Awesome mechanical keyboard Attractive design

Noisy fan Heavy

A speed demon that prioritizes raw performance, the Alienware m17 R4 puts plenty of pop into a sleek but bulky chassis.

Brilliant gaming power ; A fantastic 360Hz display ; Impressive design and connectivity ; A versatile, high-quality keyboard
