Alienware Aurora ALX

maximum pc
9 February 2010
  • Summary: Falcon’s $4,800 Talon system (reviewed in January) is faster, thanks to its overclocked 3.83GHz Core i7 and quad CrossFire configuration, but it’s also an LGA1156 system. The Aurora ALX is LGA1366, so when Intel comes out with its hexa-core Core i9 next year, the ALX can take the upgrade—the Falcon cannot. That puts the ALX in a good place for folks who want a unique machine—without any of the hassles that can crop up with overclocking.
  • Pros: Truly unique chassis with multicolor perimeter lighting.
  • Cons: Needs backup drive for storage; outperformed by overclocked machines.

  • Summary: From testing the M15x and M17x laptops we knew that the acquisition of Alienware by Dell had provided both companies with the ability to release some very impressive products. Those two laptops were Performance award winners and the M15x which was one of the first systems to use mobile Core-i7 really was a huge step ahead of the last generation.

Alienware Aurora ALX (Core i7)

21 March 2010
  • Summary: Новейший ПК серии Alienware ALX — Alienware Aurora ALX (Core i7). Столь же шикарный и мощный, как и предшественники, но чтобы завладеть этой системой придется «продать почку».
  • Pros: Тестовая конфигурация была укомплектована процессором Intel Core i7-975 3.33 ГГц, но есть возможность заплатить дополнительно 200 долларов и получить тот же ЦП с повышенной до 3, 6 ГГц тактовой частотой. Этим можно похвастаться перед друзьями, вряд ли стоит ждать ощутимого прироста в показателях производительности ПК, они и без этого потрясающи.
  • Cons: Цена — 4249 долл. очень высока, особенно с учетом того, сколько всего не входит в комплект. И непросто одобрить машину, которая при такой высокой цене не предоставляет серьезных возможностей для расширения.
