70% - Alienware's foray into the thin and light gaming laptop sphere is an aggressively priced, if underwhelming, take on Nvidia's Max-Q design push.
Review date: December 20, 2018 | Model: Alienware M15
I'm torn on whether I should recommend the Alienware m15. On one hand, it's not quite as thin or as light as its main rivals. Its design, while more contemporary than what we've seen from Alienware in the past, still has a few remaining quirks. And even though its specs are in line with the latest offerings from Razer and MSI, the Max-Q rendition of Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1070 graphics chip is beginning to show its age. As certain triple-A games begin to prove themselves more demanding, 60 fps at 1080p has proved itself an ambitious target. On the other hand, the Alienware m15 I reviewed here delivers performance similar to the $2,599 Razer Blade 15 for hundreds of dollars less, making it the better value in terms of sheer horsepower alone. It's not for everyone, but it does paint a clearer picture of what the future holds for Dell's gaming-first notebook division.Reviewed by: Gabe Carey | Read full review...

It took a while, but Alienware has created a thin-and-light gaming laptop that's equal parts flashy, sexy and powerful. The m15 is legitimately portable without sacrificing the performance and endurance I've come to expect from the brand. And don't forget that lovely, vivacious display... For that type of cash, you can get either the Asus Zephyrus or the Razer Blade 15, which offer better gaming performance on some titles, although you'll sacrifice battery life. But overall, the Alienware m15 is a top contender for the thin-and-light gaming crown.Reviewed by: Sherri L. Smith | Read full review...

Alienware’s first attempt at a thin-and-light gaming notebook is mostly a winner. It’s far less bulky than previous models. And with that thin redesign comes strong performance and long-lasting battery... Those looking for a premium experience with enduring battery life, a vivid screen and a thin chassis who don’t mind dealing with a bit of heat should strongly consider the m15. Alienware has created a strong contender in a growing world of slim and powerful gaming laptops.Reviewed by: Andrew E. Freedman | Read full review...
