Alienware M11x R3 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
23 June 2011
  • Summary: Like its predecessors, the third-generation Alienware M11x offers equal parts style, gaming prowess, and portability. As the only true gaming notebook under 13 inches, the M11x is a must-have for anyone who needs a lightweight notebook that's capable of playing serious games. The keyboard layout is somewhat cramped and the Wi-Fi performance is lackluster, but overall the M11x continues to impress.

Alienware M11x (Core i7

CNET
14 March 2011
  • Summary: Equipped with Nvidia Optimus technology and new Core i5 and i7 processors, the updated 11.6-inch Alienware M11x has improved performance, but it takes a small step forward, not a quantum leap.
  • Pros: Solid gaming performance in a very compact form; improves on the original Core 2 Duo version; automatic Nvidia Optimus graphics switching; impressive built-in audio.
  • Cons: The Core i7 ULV processor is still slower than normal Core i7 processors; higher-end configs get too expensive; no optical drive for installing games.

Alienware M11x (spring 2011)

CNET
12 March 2011
  • Summary: Don't be fooled by its unchanged looks: the 2011 Alienware M11x makes big leaps forward in performance, graphics, and battery life, while keeping a reasonable price. Anyone looking for a portable gaming-ready laptop will have a hard time resisting the urge to pick one of these up.
  • Pros: This year's version of the Alienware M11x has markedly improved graphics performance and battery life, and the laptop's solid build, USB 3.0 ports, and impressive 5.1 surround-sound Klipsch speakers are also pluses.
  • Cons: The M11x still has a chunky chassis; also, the lack of an optical drive isn't a dealbreaker, but can be frustrating when installing games.

Alienware M11x R3 review

Pocket Lint
8 August 2011
  • Conclusion: Squeezing a gaming machine into an 11-inch form factor is a challenge, and it's not quite clear if Dell has succeeded with the Alienware M11x. It's certainly powerful enough, but you're going to miss the optical drive - after all, most games still come on CD and many use a disk as part of their copy protection. It's also not as light as it might be, weighing in at about 2kg thanks to the battery - around the weight of a similarly configured 15-inch device.
  • Pros: Ultraportable gaming notebook with plenty of power
  • Cons: No optical drive and a poor keyboard

  • Summary: The Alienware M11x R3 has a solid build quality and its overall performance points to it being a good choice for gamers who are on the move, and who wouldn’t want to go through the trouble of travelling around with a bulkier gaming laptop.

Alienware M11x review

Gameplanet
30 March 2011
  • Excerpt: It may be small indeed, but the penalty hit to performance may be too much to tolerate for some.
  • Pros: Light on weight, with a funky design and a relatively clean Windows install.
  • Cons: Location of input/output ports causes space issues. Reflective display can be hard to view. For an expensive device marketed at gamers, it's not particularly powerful.

Alienware m11x (Core i5) review

Stuff.tv
14 August 2010
  • Summary: Alienware's miniature M11x has been around for less than six months, but a lot has changed since it blazed onto the scene. Back in March, it astonished us with its performance, small size and impeccable design. Since then, though, we’ve seen the arrival of rival ultra-portables like Acer’s Timeline X , not to mention a raft of particularly demanding games. So is the m11x still the lightweight laptop to own?
