  • 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.
  • Pros: Large, bright screen. HDMI-in is rare on a laptop. Blu-ray drive. Lots of video outputs. Four USB 3.0 ports. Ivy Bridge processor. 3D performance that rivals dual-card systems. Full-size keyboard with numeric keypad. Solid build quality. Attention-grabbing lighting effects. 1080p screen.
  • Cons: Shiny screen. Heavy. Less than three hours of battery life.

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.
