Source: Tech For Pennies Archive.org version
You probably have a good reason to buy Alienware AW15R3-0012SLV if gaming, the hardcore sort, is close to your heart. The graphics performance in this notebook is strong, with the GTX 1060 graphics card providing some insane oomph for any game played on maxed out settings. Be it Triple A titles or older games you’re looking at, FPS is going to be smooth. One worse thing would be the missing solid-state drive, but you can install one yourself later. As it is, the Alienware will make an avid gamer happy!
