Alienware M18x R2 Notebook Review: NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 680M in SLI

AnandTech
28 September 2012
  • Conclusion: As I mentioned in the conclusion of my review of the Alienware M17x R4, there are no points awarded for repetition. The original M18x was good but not perfect, and simply repeating the design instead of at least iterating it isn't going to somehow result in a better review. I think for the most part the shell does work; the aluminum is attractive and however you feel about Alienware's aesthetics, it's at least distinctive and feels sturdier than competing notebooks from...

Review Alienware M18x R2 Notebook

Notebookcheck
11 July 2012
  • Summary: CrossFire deluxe. Hardcore gamers who don't care to make friends with a desktop PC have come to the right address with Alienware. The massive M18x is looking for customers in its second revision now with dual GPU solutions. Does a double Radeon HD 7970M mean double the fun?
  • Pros: Diverse Lighting options, Display with strong contrast, Exceptional Performance, Rich Accessories, A multitude of connectors, Aluminum surfaces, Great input devices, Relatively good sound, Nice workmanship, Simple to service or upgrade, Overclocked CPU, Performance does not trail "real" gaming PCs
  • Cons: Extremely high weight, Meager battery runtime, Display is like a mirror, Upgrade pricing is terrible, Will Alienware ever offer a decent non-reflective screen?

Alienware's M18x, Part 2: AMD's Radeon HD 6990M in CrossFire

AnandTech
14 October 2011
  • Conclusion: We had a hunch that NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 580M would continue to be the fastest single GPU available in notebooks, and that turned out to be accurate...mostly. In a couple of games the 580M is a slam dunk, while in others it trades blows with AMD's Radeon HD 6990M. Once multi-GPU solutions are brought into the equation, things tend to veer more in favor of NVIDIA's solution, but we remind you that two isn't always better than one: it may look better on charts, but...

Alienware's M18x, Part 1: NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 580M in SLI

AnandTech
3 October 2011
  • Conclusion: For end users who want a powerful gaming notebook, or heck, a powerful notebook in general, my go-to has been the Alienware M17x R3 since I reviewed it (provided they have the budget for it). Now that I've had a chance to sit down and review the M18x, my go-to is...still the M17x R3. The M18x is faster, yes, but with the added performance come some additional compromises. In and of itself, the M18x is another feather in Alienware's cap.

Alienware M18x Review

LAPTOP Magazine
29 August 2011
  • Summary: To paraphrase Samuel L. Jackson in Jackie Brown , if you absolutely, positively need to kill everyone at the LAN party, accept no substitutes. If you can only afford one GPU, the $3,300 M17x is a better option, but its chassis can only accommodate a single graphics card. But if you can swing for two GPUs, then the M18x is the way to go. From power to weight to price, this notebook simply has more--the most--of everything.

This 18.4in beast of a notebook is supremely powerful, but has a matching price tag

Good Gear Guide.au
13 April 2012
  • Summary: If you’re looking for a proper desktop replacement -- replacing a gaming desktop, that is -- the Alienware M18x is undoubtedly the notebook to pick. It’s massive and has a price tag that’s painful, but its performance is almost unparalleled.
  • Pros: Hugely powerful, Great screen and excellent build quality, HDMI-in, USB 3.0, amazing feature-set
  • Cons: Hugely expensive, Just huge, Clunky process to switch graphics

Alienware M18X

THE INQUIRER
23 February 2012
  • Excerpt: Looks-wise the Alienware M18X oozes style, class and great build quality. It has a stunning 18.4in full HD screen with 1920x1080 resolution. You can guess that this makes the laptop enormous in size and it is very heavy. If you don't mind lugging around 7kg then you're certain to impress people with this bit of hard core gaming gear.
