Alienware M17x R4 Notebook Review: Ivy Bridge and the GeForce GTX 680M

AnandTech
21 September 2012
  • Conclusion: What we're looking at with this review of the Alienware M17x R4 are really two things: the performance of the shiny new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680M, and the Alienware M17x R4 notebook itself. Amusingly if unfortunately, the conclusions drawn are pretty disparate.

  • Conclusion: Things we hope to see in future iterations of Alienware laptops include a sheet of rigid, non-glossy glass in front of the LCD screen; a Blu-ray drive that comes standard even in the base model; and quieter exhaust fans.
  • Pros: Excellent performance for the price, Big, bright 1080p screen, Customizable lighting effects, HDMI-in port
  • Cons: Thick and heavy, Reflective screen, Loud exhaust fans blast hot air when gaming

Alienware M17x R4

PC Magazine
21 June 2012
  • Conclusion: The Alienware M17x R4 adds the latest Intel Core processor and Nvidia Graphics to one of the best gaming laptop chassis in the business. It's ostentatious, audacious, over the top, and strangely enough, more affordable than rivals.

  • Cons: Shiny screen. Heavy. Less than three hours of battery life.

  • Pros: Solid performance, Striking HD display, Edgy design
  • Cons: Expensive, Short battery life, Fans can get loud

Alienware's M17x R3: An Antidote to Clevo

AnandTech
20 June 2011
  • Conclusion: After using the Alienware M17x R3, I'm actually sorry I'll have to send it back. Usually with most of the notebooks I've reviewed there's some kind of fatal flaw, or something that makes it less than ideal for my purposes. But the M17x R3 is mostly bulletproof.

Alienware M17x ( Core i7)

CNET
10 June 2010
  • Summary: Our configuration of the revamped Alienware M17x is expensive, but it's not bad value for money, considering the awesome components that lurk within. The Intel Core i7 CPU seems to really make a difference in terms of performance, and everything's wrapped up in a very stylish chassis
  • Pros: Huge array of customisation options; stylish chassis; incredible performance.
  • Cons: USB ports are too close together; unresponsive trackpad.
