A battle-hardened but not yet war-weary gaming laptop

 

The old-school Alienware 17 is heavy and fast out of the box for when you care more about gaming and less about portability, plus offers a Tobii Eye Tracking option.

The Alienware 17 R4 is built like a tank, offers a well-designed lighting scheme and controls, and you can get a reasonably fast configuration for the money.

The fans are loud and seem like they're always on, battery life doesn't impress, could use more USB connectors and Alienware doesn't make it easy to tweak or monitor performance.

If you want something that's fast out of the box but don't yearn to endlessly fiddle for that last bit of speed, the Alienware 17 delivers.

Expensive. 9.7-pound weight and 2.5-pound power brick are not travel friendly. Short battery life. Loud fans under heavy load.

The revamped 17-inch Alienware flagship laptop delivers on the expectation of high-end performance, coupled with some premium extras and a sturdy but stylish design. You'll have to cough up for the fastest components, but the price falls in line with...
