Reviews for the Alienware m15 R7-VPV1K

90% Dell Alienware m15 R7 laptop review: Power-packed performer
Source: Gadgets Now English
Powerful internals, connectivity options and a great display do steal the show for Dell Alienware m15 R7. However, quirks like sporadic throttling, loud fans and portability issues surely hurt the overall score. With the ever-rising competition from brands like Asus and MSI, Dell may have to step up a gear or two.

80% Alienware m15 R7 review: A divine gaming laptop
Source: The Indian Express English
If I compare gaming laptops of the past to the new ones, I see a big shift. Sure, high-end gaming notebooks will still blow one away in terms of performance but now they are much lighter and more versatile. The Alienware m15 R7 brings power previously only available in the form factor of a desktop. Now, I can imagine a high-end gaming notebook with a high-refresh-rate display and serious computing power, all in a clamshell you can close and stuff in your backpack. It’s not cheap. But that’s okay. The m15 R7 is a tool for professional gamers and podcast editors, and it has to be built with their needs in mind.

15.60":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

2.69 kg:

With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
