Alienware M17x R3 (3D Vision) Gaming Laptop Review

Alienware M17x R3 Gaming Laptop Review


Alienware should be a brand that a large chunk of consumers are aware of, whether it is from knowledge of the enthusiast market or even through TV placement in shows such as 24, Smallville and The Big Bang Theory. There is also a strong possibility that a large amount of consumers have become aware of the brand since Dell took on Alienware a few years ago, something which resulted in a leap in quality of the systems produced.

The first system to get the Dell and Alienware combined treatment was the M17x back in 2009 and at the time we reviewed one of the first samples available, finding it to be an excellent desktop replacement system. Since then the M17x was refreshed, the M15x brought the same style to a smaller form factor and the M11x entered the market with phenomenal performance and features for an 11" system. Now with the launch of Intel's Sandy Bridge platform which includes the latest generation of Core CPUs and the P67/H67 chipsets we have a second refresh of the M17x.

Today we will be putting the M17x R3 with its Sandy Bridge components, 120Hz screen and 3D Vision kit through a selection of real world tests to find out how it compares to a desktop P67 system, the original 2009 model M17x and the R2 from 2010.
