If you're in love with the concept and have money to burn, you'll get the promised performance, but there are much better design innovation and values out there. We think the Alienware m15 R4 offers the most performance per dollar, the Asus Zephyrus Duo 15 is a more appealing (while similarly speedy) experimental design, and the Alienware m17 R3 is a more practical RTX 20 Series solution.
