Reviews for the Alienware Aurora mALX

90% Alienware Aurora mALX 19" Gaming Notebook Review
Source: PC Perspective English
The only major design concern I have with the mALX is the troublesome power adapter. Unlike typical notebook adapter plugs, this one uses multiple prongs which is prone to breaking (like S-Video cables). This is particularly worrisome since this adapter is unique to the mALX so finding a generic replacement is non-existent. To compound this problem, the 3 lb. power brick dangles off this delicate connector exerting unnecessary pressure. Alienware should have given a longer cable to ensure that the brick sits on the floor. Otherwise you put the power brick on the table, which isn't always available.

With two Nvidia Go 7900 GTX graphics chips, it's no surprise that Aurora mALX was the performance champion in our tests. Wired: Two top-line graphics processors plus 2.4-GHz AMD Turion 64 Mobile CPU equals killer performance. Comes with nice headphones and a backpack. Tired: At 17 pounds with its beffy power supply, it pushes the definition of portability, which explains the backpack.

90% Top dollar gets top performance from this monstrous 19-inch gaming rig.

Just how big is Alienware’s 19-inch, SLI-based top-of-the-line mALX gaming laptop? Packed into the box is a backpack seemingly large enough for an Everest climb. With dual Nvidia Go 7900 GTX cards and dual HDD support up to 240GB, the mALX may be the ultimate rig for flying through the latest games at the highest settings. At 15 pounds and a base price of $4,499 (our configuration costs $5,549), this system is best suited for LAN parties. Wherever you take the mALX, it will dominate the competition. As is often the case with gaming laptops, the mALX is decked out cosmetically as well as technically. Color-shifting metallic fleck paint is airbrushed onto the cover. The standard Alienware design has been modified to look more like a texture out of Quake. Once open, however, the chassis is almost demure, if an 18-inch footprint can be. A full-sized keyboard with acceptable key depth lurks within. The glowing alien head remains lit, as does the set of irritating lights under the display.

Alienware Aurora mALX
Source: CNet English
The Alienware Aurora mALX is a show-offy laptop. Its 19-inch display is so massive that you need a huge Alienware backpack to carry it around. Its case features an extremely detailed custom airbrush paint job with a ribbon of metallic color that changes when viewed at different angles. And as with all status symbols, it's expensive: pricing starts at $4,499, and our review unit, which included a number of high-end upgrades, cost almost $5,600. The mALX isn't all bark and no bite, though. With two graphics cards running in a scalable link interface, the mALX achieved the highest frame rates to date on our gaming benchmarks. That said, the mALX didn't exactly blow away the competition; the 19-inch Eurocom M590K Emperor ($5,430) offers similar gaming performance, and the 17-inch Dell XPS M1710 ($4,215) trails just a bit behind it.
