  • Conclusion: Das Alienware M18x durchlief schon einmal unseren Testparcour im Juni diesen Jahres mit dem Testergebnis „Sehr gut“. Damals handelte es sich um eine Version mit Intel Core i7-2630QM, 2 AMD Radeon HD6970M im CrossfireX und einer 500 GB Hybrid-Festplatte .
  • Pros: sehr gute Verarbeitung, sehr hohe Leistung, hohe 3D-Leistung, gutes Soundsystem, viele Beleuchtungsmöglichkeiten
  • Cons: Gewicht, schweres und großes Netzteil, Neustart notwendig für Grafikkarten-Switch

  • Conclusion: Der Bolide Alienware M18x steht eigentlich nur sich selber im Weg. Das immense Gewicht von 5,6 kg verwässert den mobilen Anspruch. Doch die umschaltbare Grafiklösung steht dem wiederrum entgegen.
  • Pros: herausragende Verarbeitungsqualität, Hybrid-Grafik, Akkulaufzeit, Anschlussvielfalt, individualisierte Beleuchtung, ausgewogener Sound auch bei geringer Lautstärke, hohe Leistung (CPU & GPU)
  • Cons: Glare Display: Blickwinkel, Klang des Subwoofer bei voller Lautstärke, Gewicht, Neustart notwendig für Grafikkarten-Switch
