Alienware M17 17in Gaming Notebook

 

Ardjuna takes a look at the first mobile quad-core notebook we've seen. Can this and the M17's ATI CrossFire X graphics deliver gaming nirvana?

there aren't many laptops out there that offer it.

Alienware M17x review

 

Alienware's M17x is a supersized beast in an Ultrabook world. Can it prove there's still a need for the desktop replacement laptop?

Alienware M17 review

 

The latest 17inch notebook from our outer space friends has phenomenal gaming power. But is it worth the outlay?

Expensive, but surprisingly good value and the best high-end gaming laptop available

Alienware M17x 2012 review

 

Gaming goliath that now boasts an Intel Ivy Bridge quad-core chip

Ivy Bridge CPU ; Powerful ; Future-proof ; Surround sound ; Slick gaming

Expensive ; Heavy ; Bulky ; Poor battery life ; Garish

Alienware is back with a bang - with a threefold attack on the PC gaming arena. Along with the M14x and the M18x, the Alienware M17x R4 has had an Intel Ivy Bridge-flavoured refresh for 2012.

Alienware M17x review

 

Despite that, the M17x is well-designed and comfortable to use when you're settling in for a long gaming session. The large screen provides full-HD resolution of 1920 x 1080, with excellent image quality – although the glossy, reflective screen coating...

There’s no doubt that the M17x is one of the most powerful gaming laptops currently available. However, in the form we tested it, it’s also one of the most expensive, with a price tag well over £1700. The machine’s sheer size and weight may also deter...

Dell Alienware M17x review

 

If you're after a showcase of what the most powerful mobile hardware can do, the new 2012 version of Dell's Alienware M17x is it. This is an almost old-school huge desktop replacement laptop with a brand-new quad-core Intel Ivy Bridge Core i7-3610QM...

Alienware M17 review

 

When we think of Alienware PCs, two words come to mind - and 'cheap' usually isn't one of them. This boutique game machine maker creates premium packages with premium prices. For an Alienware laptop, the Alienware M17 is priced within a reasonable...

That gripe aside, those who want to get their game on will get a good deal out of the Alienware m17 - especially considering the price. As a gaming machine, the Alienware M17 delivers speed where it counts, but it lags a little in more conventional...

Amazing 2D and 3D power and a great screen make this an incredible desktop replacement laptop

No corners have been cut when it comes to the screen, though. It's a reflective model, so works best in darker environments, but colours are vibrant and consistent across the panel's surface. The Full HD resolution is perfect for sharp 3D graphics and...
