Alienware has updated its high-end, 17-inch M17x gaming laptop with some new components, and the result is an incredibly powerful machine. It's been dubbed the Alienware M17x for some time now, but this latest version adds Intel's Core i7 processor for even more power.
Oddly, the 17-inch wide-screen, which is usually a sight to behold on a gaming laptop, is one of the M17x's weaker points. It weighs 5.3kg and measures 406 by 51 by 321mm, so it's really far too big and heavy to move on a frequent basis, except possibly from room to room.
Despite the glossy display, our gaming experience wasn't ruined by annoying reflections, because the M17x's screen is very bright indeed. The M17x will crush your spine with its monumental chassis, and then make your brains dribble out of your nose with its performance.
Even though Alienware found the biggest battery (85Wh) available for the M17x, it couldn't keep up with its battery-guzzling parts, namely the processor and SLI graphics cards. Alienware M17x is the complete package, as its looks can stand in the spotlight with its parts.
