Alienware Aurora m9700 SLI Review

I4U News
14 August 2008
  • Excerpt: Once I opened the box I found all sorts of cool little touches that I have not seen from a PC manufacturer before like a leather looking ring binder to hold the owners manual which was nice. Little things like this give a feel of exclusivity to the owner.

Alienware Aurora m9700

CNET
25 October 2007
  • Summary: The Alienware Aurora m9700 packs a wallop with dual SLI graphics, two hard drives, an integrated TV tuner, and a gorgeous 17-inch wide-screen display, but we expected its performance to knock us out instead of merely leaving us weak in the knees.
  • Pros: SLI graphics provide solid frame rates; loads of drive space; integrated TV tuner; mouse and remote included; comfy keyboard with number pad; beautiful 17-inch wide-screen display.
  • Cons: Dual-core CPUs aren't offered; performance is very good but not great; glossy finish on touch pad makes it less than comfortable to use; glossy screen prone to glare.

Alienware Aurora m9700 Notebook with SLI and RAID

PC Perspective
19 October 2006
  • Excerpt: Alienware made a big splash in the headlines not long ago with their announcement of the world's first gaming laptop to support TWO GPUs. But that alone was not enough for Alienware, no sir! They also included RAID for increased performance and security. If there ever was a laptop to truly replace a desktop machine, the Aurora m9700 was the one to accomplish that.

Alienware Aurora m9700 SLI laptop review

TechSpot
10 August 2006
  • Conclusion: So is Alienware lying then, or is there something wrong with the Aurora m9700 SLI configuration? I do not believe Alienware is lying, and I do not believe there is anything wrong with the Aurora m9700. SLI is working correctly as I proved with the FSAA 4x and Aniso 16x quality testing. The problem is quite simple and it is the same problem that has plagued many desktop gaming systems in recent years.

Alienware aurora m9700 laptop - EUROPE EXCLUSIVE

Pocket Lint
21 September 2006
  • Conclusion: In our tests the m9700 performed very well and certainly held its own when it came to playing games. The combined 1GB cards certainly made the difference and our tests with one of the most demanding games on the market didn't seem to give it any problems what so ever. While the Alienware Aurora m9700 professes to be a desktop replacement and in size it is, we were pleasantly surprised that it didn't weight as much as a desktop machine -it's still 3.9Kg, but that's not...
  • Pros: Dual graphics cards, glossy screen, available in bright green
  • Cons: Powerpack almost as big as the laptop, scroll pad very plastic to touch

Alienware Aurora m9700 : Über-Notebook mit doppelter Grafik

netzwelt
15 June 2007
  • Excerpt: Vorsicht Suizidgefahr: Wundern Sie sich nicht, wenn Ihr PC plötzlich Anstalten macht, aus dem nächsten Fenster zu hüpfen. Vielleicht verkraftete er die Schande nicht, dass er von diesem Notebook gnadenlos stehen gelassen wurde. Desktop-Killer statt Desktop-Ersatz lautet die korrekte Bezeichnung für das neue 17-Zoll-Notebook Aurora m9700 von Alienware. Glauben Sie nicht?
