    Alienware M17x R4 review: mobile gaming at its finest

    Posted August 11, 2012 - 7:15 am

    If a laptop weighs nearly 10 pounds, can you comfortably hold it on your lap? Probably not, and that's why we call gaming monstrosities such as the Alienware M17x R4 "desktop replacements." Because, really, they're desktops that are only slightly easier to move than traditional towers.

    Home Theater PCs aren't new but they're not exactly mainstream, either. Alienware wants to change that with its new console-ish gaming PC, the Alienware X51.

    Product review: Alienware OptX AW2210 21.5-Inch LCD Monitor

    Posted November 19, 2009 - 10:09 pm

    Alienware Invades with New Notebook

    Posted May 29, 2009 - 12:39 pm

    When Alienware reps set the new M17x in front of me for a demo, my first thought was "If I just sit here and look at this thing, will it transform into a robot--or a 2009 Dodge Charger?"

    Alienware m17 Desktop Replacement Notebook

    Posted January 29, 2009 - 3:51 pm

    Does the m17 deliver the goods? Yes. I've roamed Fallout 3's post-apocalyptic wastelands at the laptop's 1920-by-1200-pixel native resolution. It's completely playable, and I didn't run into any game-killing snags.
