10 March 2010
  • Excerpt: The Alienware brand conjures images of powerful and elite computing hardware—think of the nearly invincible antagonist from the 1987 action flick, Predator. Alienware’s M17 looks the part, but the unit we received for review was about as dangerous as E.T.
  • Pros: Hip finish, luscious display, cool backlit keyboard.
  • Cons: Heavy, unimpressive gaming performance, terrible speakers.
