Reviews for the Alienware M15, GTX 1070

80% Alienware m15 review
Source: Tech Advisor English
If you don't mind paying for portability, the Alienware m15 is one of the best light(er) gaming laptops around right now. The slimmer, lighter design hasn't brought any serious compromises on power or performance, and even battery life is surprisingly strong. The only real downsides here are the outsized top bezel and the fact that it runs hot - two reasons you may want to look at the more recent m15 R2 models.
