Reviews for the Alienware m15 R2, i9-9980HK, RTX 2080

70% Dell Alienware m15 (2019) review: The reliable gaming machine
Source: Gadget Show English
That said, it’s is one of the best choices out there if you are hooked on buying an OLED-screen gaming laptop. Even the likes of Asus and HP don’t have a powerful gaming laptop that has Tobii eye-tracking, customisable LED grilles, Intel Core i9 processor, 4K OLED display all in such a slim build. However, if you’re not a big fan of 4K OLED and Tobii eye-tracking hardware, Dell’s Alienware m15 might lose some of its shine to rivals who are offering an equally powerful alternative at a lower price.
