Alienware M17x R4 17-inch Gaming Laptop Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
Hot Hardware have reviewed the high-end Alienware M17x R4, a 17-inch gaming notebook which features a 17.3-inch 1920x1080 display, quad-core/eight-thread 2.6-3.6Ghz processor, 8GB of RAM, 32GB SSD, 500GB 7200rpm HDD and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680M 2GB GPU.
Here's what they had to say:
"When you have a killer CPU/GPU combo like the Alienware M17x does with the Intel Core i7-3720QM and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680M, you know youre going to have a wickedly powerful system, and indeed, the M17x is an impressive specimen. Except for a couple of aberrations, this rig beat out the competition handily, even over systems with dual GPU configurations.
In the end, the Alienware M17x is a phenomenal gaming rig that outstrips most of the stiffest competition at a relatively reasonable price. Sure, $2,469 is steep, but the system could easily have cost hundreds of dollars more, and looking around at the competition, that price is probably just about where it should be for what youre getting. Aside from a few minor complaints concerning ergonomics and storage, the Alienware M17x is a killer refresh of the line that any gamer would be glad to show off."
This is clearly one of the most impressive gaming notebooks on the market right now, it really offers everything you could want in a desktop-replacement notebook.
