Alienware 14 review

theverge.com
7 January 2014
  • Summary: "There's a thousand thin notebooks out there. If you want one, there's plenty of options," says Alienware's Frank Azor. Here at E3, the company's announcing the first new industrial design for its laptops in four years ... and yet where most firms are focusing their efforts on ever-thinner machines (see: the Razer Blade ), all of Alienware's latest products are actually thicker than their predecessors. They're slabs. They're tanks. Take the new Alienware 14, for example.
  • Pros: Fantastically fast for a 14-incher, Killer optional 1080p IPS screen, Great build quality
  • Cons: Thick slab-like design, Sub-par battery life, Software quirks

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,...

Alienware 14

LAPTOP Magazine
10 June 2013
  • Summary: With its powerful Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, combination mSATA SSD and HDD setup, and Nvidia GTX 765M GPU, the Alienware 14 is a powerful gaming notebook packed into a transportable package. This laptop's gaming performance is nothing short of impressive, and its design is otherworldly. However, the system runs hot while gaming, and its screen could be brighter. Overall, though, Alienware has made a very worthy successor to its 14-inch gaming notebook.
  • Pros: Slick design with customizable lighting, Powerful Intel Haswell processor, Outstanding graphics performance, Comfortable keyboard, Great audio quality
  • Cons: Relatively dim display, Runs hot while gaming

Alienware M14x

CNET
25 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.
  • Cons: High-end configurations can be insanely expensive, and Alienware's laptop design is overdue for a refresh.

Gaming in a semiportable package with the Alienware 14

CNET
29 March 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.
  • Cons: The new design still feels dated, and it's as thick as a few slim laptops stacked together. The fan is insanely loud.

Alienware M14x Laptop Review

hardwareheaven.com
18 July 2011
  • Excerpt: Over the past year or so we have taken a look at a number of Alienware systems from the 11" M11x to the M17xR3 with the M18x being the most recent model to be probed. There is however one model in the range that we have yet to review, the M14x which looks to combine some of the portability of the M11x with the power of the larger models.

  • Excerpt: The Alienware brand dominates gaming laptops , but the latest addition to Dell's range isn't the huge, brash notebook you'd expect – it's got a 14in screen, and it looks fantastic. See: The 7 best gaming laptops of 2013 .
