Alienware m18 R2 review: A gaming juggernaut with speed to spare


If you're looking for the ultimate gaming experience, the powerful Alienware m18 R2 will certainly deliver.

Excellent performance ; Great mechanical keyboard with Cherry switches ; Ample ports ; Solid build quality

Mediocre battery life ; Very heavy ; Low display brightness ; Slight lag when switching GPUs

The Alienware m18 R2 is a gamer’s dream with top-of-the-line specs and a huge 18-inch display. However, you’ll pay handsomely for the privilege of hauling around the best gaming hardware in a very heavy laptop form factor.

Alienware m18 R2


There is no doubt that the Alienware m18 R2 is a capable gaming machine. We also like the design that easily stands out among the competition. The chassis is stable, well-built, and feels premium to the touch which corresponds to the high expectations...

Alienware m18 R2 review: Big battlestation with clicky keys


The $50 for the mechanical keyboard is worth the splurge.

Solid build quality ; Lots of upgrade and repairability options ; Strong gaming performance ; Cherry keyboard option feels great

Display is dimmer than the competition ; Heavy, even for its size ; Touchpad feels cheap

The Alienware m18 R2 is an 18-inch laptop that's heavy even for its size, but boasts a quality chassis, tons of storage upgrade opportunities, and strong gaming performance.

Alienware M18 R2 review: luggable gaming laptop has power to spare


Dell's gaming laptop brand, Alienware, delivers big from this large 18-inch panel powerhouse

Shedloads of gaming performance ; Excellent screen

Large and heavy ; Fans are noisy when gaming

The Alienware M18 R2 is a big laptop in every way, with an 18-inch screen, top-of-the-line processor, and graphics, all wrapped up in a package heavy enough to break your back if you pick it up wrong. But there is no OLED or Mini LED display option,...
