In the end, it boils down to what a buyer values more: the overall package and premium aesthetic vs. raw specs and performance. There are some design choices here that contribute to a higher bottom line for the Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition R5, including the higher 125 Watt thermal budget and the cooling system required to keep everything healthy and humming along at full speed. There is also plenty of flashy RGB-lit bling on hand, a high quality keyboard and premium materials, if these sort of trimmings are important to you. Buyers that hold raw performance-per-dollar as king might want to consider other options, but gamers that want to stand out in a crowd of boring black notebooks and still have plenty of high-powered gaming performance would do well to consider the Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition R5.

Dell offers it with full HD 165Hz, full HD 360Hz and QHD 240Hz fast refresh IPS displays and your choice of a traditional zone backlit keyboard and the CherryMX per key RGB mechanical keyboard. The Alienware has 2 RAM slots and socketed Wi-Fi 6 card, which is a great improvement over the past few generations that had those parts soldered.
