Gaming in a semiportable package with the Alienware 14

CNET
21 August 2013
  • Summary: Dell has revamped its gaming line, including the new Alienware 14. The design changes don't go nearly far enough, but no complaints about the performance.
  • Pros: Dell's new Alienware 14 offers great performance, competitive prices, and quirky features such as a backlit touch pad.
  • Cons: The new design still feels dated, and it's as thick as a few slim laptops stacked together. The fan is insanely loud.

Review Alienware 14 Notebook

Notebookcheck
27 July 2013
  • Summary: Tempting. New case, new name and new components: Alienware risks a lot to offer the best gaming notebooks in 2013. The integrated features won't be easy to beat for the competition. Despite its 14-inch form factor the notebook can be equipped with a high resolution anti-reflective display and a GeForce GTX 765M. A well balanced package or just an overpriced beauty?
  • Pros: Non-glare display with high contrast, Respectable performance, High-quality materials, Excellent build quality, Convenient keyboard, Nice illumination, Large touchpad, Flat PSU, Configurable, Matte finish, mSATA-SSD, 3x USB 3.0, We really appreciate the matte Full HD display.
  • Cons: Not all the components are accessible, Enormous noise development, No CPU-turbo under full load, GPU throttling under full load, Meager box content, Bad battery runtimes, Idle temperatures, Bulky case, High weight, A thinner and lighter case with longer battery runtimes.

Geek With Laptop
19 June 2013
  • Excerpt: There was a time when an Alienware laptop was out of reach to many gamers simply on the prices of these cool looking machines! But now part of Dell, these laptops are more affordable than ever and the latest addition to the range the Alienware 14 is something very special indeed. There are five models in the range with prices starting from $1,200 to $2,700; the final price could even be higher because as ever, Dell will tempt the buyer with optional extras and upgrades,...

  • Cons: Thick slab-like design, Sub-par battery life, Software quirks

Alienware M14x

CNET
6 April 2013
  • Summary: It's tough to find mobile PC gaming in a package that's neither too big nor too small. The Alienware M14x comes very close, with plenty of component options and a size that's hefty, but not backbreaking.
  • Pros: The Alienware M14x, Dell's latest Alienware laptop, manages to pack amazing performance into a smaller-than-expected body with plenty of configuration options.
  • Cons: High-end configurations can be insanely expensive, and Alienware's laptop design is overdue for a refresh.

17 April 2013
  • Summary: The latest revision to the Alienware M14x packs the first Intel Ivy Bridge processor we’ve seen in a laptop. It brings true high-end performance into a compact and portable machine at a high but quite justifiable price tag.
