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...

Alienware M18x R2

LAPTOP Magazine
31 August 2012
  • Summary: Each year, Alienware keeps outdoing itself in terms of performance, and this year's M18x R2 is no different. Its dual Nvidia GPUs, dual SSDs and gorgeous 1080p display put the M18x in a class by itself. The customizable lighting and booming audio just add to the fun. If you have the means, this gaming notebook is absolute perfection.
  • Pros: Magnificent 1080p display, Blistering graphics performance, Huge and comfortable keyboard, Rich audio, Stealthy sleek design, Solid battery life
  • Cons: Expensive, Mouse buttons a bit mushy

Alienware M18x R2 Gaming Laptop: Dual GPUs Attack

HotHardware
17 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Calling the Alienware M18x R2 a laptop is like referring to a Harley Davidson as a bicycle. Both have handlebars and ride on two wheels, but when the rubber hits the road, the Harley's going to leave a Schwinn in the rear-view mirror. So it goes with the Alienware system we abducted from Dell. Technically, it's a gaming laptop, but more accurately, it's one hell of a desktop replacement that leaves lesser systems in the dust.
  • Pros: Solid construction, Mammoth LCD panel, Two of the fastest GPUs in the universe, Lots of I/O ports, No bloatware, Desktop-like performance in a mobile (technically) form factor
  • Cons: Expensive (as configured), Short battery life, Heavy, Speakers sound slightly hollow

Alienware M18x (AMD Graphics)

LAPTOP Magazine
11 November 2011
  • Summary: As the saying goes, two is always better than one, but which dual video card setup should you get on the Alienware M18x: AMD's or Nvidia's?
  • Pros: Epic power, Highly customizable backlit keyboard and speaker grilles, Gorgeous full HD display
  • Cons: Heartbreakingly expensive, SSD Costs Extra, Very heavy, Slight flex on the keyboard

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.

  • 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.

Alienware M18X

THE INQUIRER
1 week ago
  • Excerpt: THE INQUIRER was at Dell Technology Camp in London today where the Alienware M18X got its first outing , so we took the opportunity to see what this high end gaming laptop has to offer. 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.
