Alienware 17 Gaming Notebook Review

6 September 2013
  • Conclusion: To say I went into this review of the Alienware 17 optimistic is accurate; surely Alienware would be able to tame Haswell and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M, wouldn't they? If not them, then who? Yet the truth is unfortunately far more complicated, which has led to this review taking much longer than I had hoped. Testing, then retesting, then sanity check testing, then retesting again, then sanity check retesting..

25 June 2013
  • Conclusion: We'll go further: The 17-inch Alienware is the gaming laptop that other gaming laptops are compared to. The new refresh comes just in time to preserve that status, and keep Alienware at the top of mobile gamers' short lists.
  • Pros: Topnotch build quality, Good performance, Stunning display, Cool lighting effects
  • Cons: Expensive, Heavy, Bulky power brick

Alienware 17

13 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Alienware’s newly refreshed 14-, 17-, and 18-inch gaming laptops seem to exist in a unique bubble. For most laptop and Ultrabook makers, Apple sets the design standard, and the priority is to make everything thinner, lighter and sleeker. The new Razer Blade is a great example of that. But as far as Alienware is concerned, that whole aesthetic movement may as well have never occurred.
  • Pros: Impressive specs and performance, Distinctive design, great feel, Tons of configuration possibilities
  • Cons: Extremely bulky and heavy, Alienware 18 has no matte screen option, Alienware 14 has no macro keys

The Alienware 17 grabs your attention with its captivating redesign and enhanced lighting catches, while the bright, full-HD screen draws you into the best games on Earth.

Alienware 17 review

19 February 2014
  • Summary: Alienware’s approach to gaming laptops is simple: screw subtle design and sleek ergonomics in favour of humungous machines built around super-fast tech and covered in coloured LEDs. The Alienware 17 is one such beast. Its weight (4kg) and size (5cm deep) make it more suited to a small trailer than a rucksack and it has 10 ‘light zones’ that can be customised in one of 20 colours.  Even the packaging makes it look like something found in Area 51.
  • Pros: Power, power and more power, Big 1080p screen, Decent battery life
  • Cons: LED-heavy styling, Not really portable, No 4k

  • Excerpt: The spec alone is mouth-watering, with a quad-core i7-4800MQ processor running at 2.7GHz, 16GB of memory and a high-performance GeForce GTX 780M with 4GB of video memory.

TEST: Alienware 17 - Røff, harry og hissig

PC World
6 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Er du ute etter en vanlig bærbar har du et vell av pc-er å velge i, fra små ultrabærbare til store saker som aller helst burde ha fast plass på skrivebordet, og fra billige og relativt enkle modeller, til mer forseggjorte og sprekere saker. Er du ute etter noe som duger til spill blir utvalget med ett noe knappere, selv om du etter hvert har en del å velge i her også.
  • Pros: God skjerm. Meget bra tastatur og styreflate. God byggekvalitet.
  • Cons: Høy pris. Ytelse sammenlignet med tilsvarende pc-er.

  • Summary: Az Alienware őrületet a legolcsóbban akkor úszhatjuk meg, ha egy 14 colos belépőszintű modellt vásárolunk potom 557900 forintos áron. Az arany középutat jelentheti jelen tesztalanyunk, mely a cikk írásakor 557900 forintos listaáron gyűjthető be, a képzeletbeli trónon pedig az Alienware 18 terpeszkedik, melynek csúcsmodellje 1,48 millió forintot kóstál. Egy biztos, az Alienware modellek sosem lesznek sok százezres darabszámban értékesített tucat notebookok.
  • Pros: masszív kialakítás, egyedi design, hatalmas Full HD kijelző, elképesztő tempó, rengeteg csatlakoztatási lehetőség, remek hangminőség, egyedi fényeffektek, kiváló billentyűzet és touchpad, egyszerű bővíthetőség, wireless funkciók.
  • Cons: iszonyatosan nagy és nehéz, komoly zajt termel, a kijelző nem IPS technológiájú, az optikai meghajtó nem tud BD-t írni, magas ár.
