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 ; If you want a compact, 11-inch laptop that can still play virtually any game on the...

If you want a compact, 11-inch laptop that can still play virtually any game on the market there is no other choice than the Alienware M11x R3.

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).

A while ago I wrote the article “ The PC Industry is a Vampire Living off Apple Blood ” in which I criticized the PC industry for releasing unimaginative products that lacked refinement, R&D, and ultimately costing them consumers. The industry has...

Alienware M11x R3 ultraportable gaming laptop

 

The Alienware M11x R3 is one of the heaviest 11.6in laptops you'll ever hold, but it's also the most badass! Within its tiny form factor lies an Intel...

Small yet powerful ; Great build quality ; Customisable light schemes

Feels cramped ; Fan gets loud ; Slightly heavy for its size

The M11x R3 is a little gaming laptop that you'll love. It looks good, it feels good and it performs very well. The only downside is that it's a little cramped due to its size.

Alienware M11x R3 review

 

Gaming laptops don't need to be great hulking brutes. They can be small and (relatively) light while still giving you the power you need, like the Alienware M11x which packs a Sandy Bridge Core i7 and an Nvidia GT540M graphics card into an 11.6-inch...

Ultraportable gaming notebook with plenty of power

No optical drive and a poor keyboard

Squeezing a gaming machine into an 11-inch form factor is a challenge, and it's not quite clear if Dell has succeeded with the Alienware M11x. It's certainly powerful enough, but you're going to miss the optical drive - after all, most games still come...

Alienware M11x R3 review: One of the most attractive little laptops on the market, and it has fast graphics performance

Alienware M11x R3

 

Great performance and battery life. Good sound for a tiny laptop. Backlit keyboard. USB 3.0 and gigabit Ethernet a welcome addition.

Still not using the 3G slot. Touch pad buttons can be improved. Screen isn't as vibrant as we'd like.

We still love the M11x, but with the ever-marching pace of technology, we'd like to see it go on a diet, get a better screen and a much better touch pad and buttons for the R4. And maybe, just maybe, make use of the currently pointless 3G slot.

Alienware M11x R3 review

 

We will be reviewing the newest Alienware M11x R3 which, at least in terms of appearance, is an almost exact replica of its forerunner model that was released in 2010. In terms of the hardware component, the latest M11x has received a hardware boost,...

We expected a lot of the Alienware M11x R3 unit, and for the most part it delivers on its end of the deal. However it has certain drawback such as a relatively average Audio speaker system and the fact that it heats up to quite an extent under a heavy...
