Alienware M17

8 December 2009
  • Summary: Alienware is trying to have it both ways with the new M17, combining a relatively low starting price with some very pricey upgrades, including quad-core CPUs and ATI CrossFireX video cards. Our configuration wasn't very exciting, but turned in capable gaming scores.
  • Pros: Decent mix of price and performance; optional quad-core CPUs and dual ATI GPUs.
  • Cons: Backtracks to an older, clunkier Alienware design; can get very pricey with the right options.

Alienware M17

maximum pc
20 April 2009
  • 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. Our zero-point notebook is based on Intel’s Core 2 Duo E6700 and Nvidia’s GeForce Go 8600M, so we’ve grown accustomed to newer challengers gutting it.
  • Pros: Hip finish, luscious display, cool backlit keyboard.
  • Cons: Heavy, unimpressive gaming performance, terrible speakers.

Alienware M17 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
2 December 2008
  • Summary: Considering its solid gaming performance and $1,999 price tag, the Alienware M17 proves itself a solid solution for gamers who crave elite performance without putting up their car or firstborn as collateral. Gamers on a tighter budget may want to invest in the $1,699 Gateway P-7801u, the follow-up to the highly popular P-7811FX that boasts Nvidia GeForce 9800M GTS graphics, a bigger 320GB hard drive, and an extra gig of RAM.

Recensione Alienware M17

28 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Alienware offre sempre hardware dalle lte prestazioni sia per i desktop che per i notebook gamer, ad un prezzo comprensibile. L'Alienware M17 è attualmente uno dei più efficienti notebook in circolazione nell'offerta Alienware. Appare molto confortevole, specialmente per l'alta risoluzione ed il livello di dettagli, montando una CPU Intel Quad-Core e due schede grafiche ATI Radeon 3870 in crossfire.

Обзор игрового ноутбука Alienware M17

29 July 2009
  • Conclusion: Alienware M17 Alienware M17 сослужит хорошую службу геймерам, любителям фирмы ATI . Это устройство предлагает мобильное аппаратное обеспечение, способное справиться с современными требовательными играми, за соответствующую цену. Корпус  прочен, но не мобилен : вес  корпуса составляет около 6 кг , включая источник питания. Однако M17 все равно легче, чем настольный ПК  с соответствующим дисплеем.

Alienware M17: 17 Zoll Gaming-Notebook mit Crossfire-Grafik im Test

10 July 2009
  • Summary: Mit zwei Mobility Radeon HD3870 – ATIs derzeitigem Top-Modell – bestückt Alienware das M17. Jeder der beiden Grafikchips bringt 320 Shader mit. Trotz der Grafikpower baut Alienware ein 17-Zoll-Display mit nur 1440 x 900 Bildpunkten statt eines höher auflösenden Displays ein – eine kluge Entscheidung: Viele Spiele - Notebooks protzen mit einer hohen Displayauflösung, die man aber beim Spielen wieder reduzieren muss, weil der Grafikchip dafür zu langsam ist.
