Reviews for the Alienware Aurora m7700

60% Alienware Aurora m7700
Source: PC Mag English
Alienware is perhaps, thanks to its extraterrestrial designs and robust gaming systems, the most well-known boutique vendor in the PC business. Continuing the trend is the Aurora m7700 laptop ($4,169 direct) that's built with tons of processing power and 3D prowess, thanks to an AMD Athlon 64 FX-60 desktop processor and the nVidia GeForce Go 7800 GTX graphics card. Aside from the hit the price puts on your wallet, be prepared to handle some serious shoulder strain when lugging around this 12.4-pound monstrosity.

The Aurora m7700 gaming notebook is a 12.8-pound beast with a 3-pound power adapter, but what a beauty of a desktop replacement! Are you ready? We're talking 17-inch WXGA+ wide-aspect screen, optional dual optical drives (our review model had just one), optional dual RAID hard disks (our unit included a single 160GB drive), four built-in speakers, a built-in 1.3-megapixel Webcam, an nVidia GeForce Go 7800 GTX graphics card with 256MB of RAM, a seven-in-one memory card reader, a USB floppy drive, and almost as many ports and connections as a desktop PC: serial, parallel, PS/2, DVI-I, two FireWire, four USB, S/PDF, S-Video-in, and S-Video-out.

Reviewing an Alienware is always a fun experience due to the fact that you are almost guaranteed a super high specification system which is designed to hit 0-60 in a few seconds. With the case of Alienware’s high end laptops they create systems with the goal of being desktop replacements with no compromises. This review focuses on one such product with a mouth watering specification list comprising a 7800GTX backed up with 2gb of DDR400 ... and did we mention a FX-60 dual core CPU? Please take a moment to clean the drool from your keyboard before you read on.

If you're a hard core gamer looking for a notebook that can handle today's cutting edge games, Alienware should be on your short list. With killer graphics cards and two excellent LCD options, the Aurora m7700 is ahead of the desktop replacement pack. Throw in AMD's notoriously excellent for gaming CPUs and the m7700 will put some FEAR in your gaming buddies hearts. Though not for the faint of muscle at over 12 pounds (crank that up a few pounds for the AC adapter), and not small desk friendly, the Aurora notebook is certainly much more portable and space saving than the desktop it replaces. Few of us have the pleasure of gaming 24/7, and the m7700 proves equally capable of handling MS Office work, Photoshop and software development.

Alienware Aurora M-7700 Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
One -- Performance, performance, performance. This is the fastest laptop on the market, bar none. The Athlon 64 FX-60 is blistering. I found it impossible to choke up, it devoured every program (or multiple programs) I threw at it. Another important aspect -- the Nvidia Go7800GTX 256MB video card. It's incredible. I didn't find a game I couldn't play maxed out. Not even FEAR, currently one of the hardest games to handle, posted a problem. Combine a 7800GTX and an FX-60, and you have one of the fastest gaming systems available today, all in a "portable" (compared to a desktop, that is) package. The hard drive also contributed to performance.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce Go 6800: NVIDIA GeForce Go 6800 is lower clocked than the 6800 Ultra video card for notebooks (and also cooler). The number of pixel pipelines and vertex pipelines is the same like in 6800 Ultra.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
