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

AnandTech
12 January 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.

Alienware's M17x R3: An Antidote to Clevo

AnandTech
6 January 2012
  • 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

CNET
16 December 2011
  • Summary: The Alienware M17x is a monstrously fast laptop that makes mincemeat of the latest games, even at high resolutions. Unfortunately, it also costs an arm and a leg
  • Pros: Insanely fast gaming performance; powerful quad-core processor; customisable LEDs.
  • Cons: Keyboard flex; awkward touch-sensitive panel; overkill for all but the most enthusiastic of gamers.

CNET
16 December 2011
  • 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.

  • Conclusion: You also get excellent sound quality, and unparalleled control over the lighting on the keyboard and other parts of the notebook. If you can live with some fan noise and don’t plan to stray too far from a power source, this machine belongs on your short list.
  • Pros: Solid performance, Striking HD display, Edgy design
  • Cons: Expensive, Short battery life, Fans can get loud

Alienware M17x (2011) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
21 February 2011
  • Summary: There's a reason we're giving the Alienware M17x a very, very rare five out of five stars. With its second-gen Intel quad-core processor, AMD's Radeon HD 6970M GPU, and Samsung SSD, this is by far the most powerful notebook we've ever tested.
