Alienware m15, GTX 1070 Max-Q

The Alienware m15 is Dell Alienware’s finest attempt to stepping up the game to enter the thin-and-light gaming device market. Alienware is known for producing big and chunky gaming laptops, thus making this release a surprising move. The company claimed that it is 17 percent slimmer, 30 percent smaller, and 38 percent lighter compared to the previous generation Alienware 15. While it is a lightweight and slim gaming laptop, it certainly does not perform as great as other high performing gaming laptops. The m15 is the slimmest Alienware laptop ever at 2,18 kg (4.8 pound) and measures at 36,32 x 27,43 x 1,78-2,03 cm (14.3 x 10.8 x 0.7-0.8 inch). However, this isn't the lightest gaming system at its range yet, as both the MSI GS65 Stealth Thin and the Razer Blade 15 weigh less. Dell Alienware does not compromise build quality for weight: the lid is still made from anodized aluminium which looks and feels premium. The large backlit has an alien head in the center and there are three lines intersecting to the bottom half of the lid. The Dell Alienware m15 is available in Nebula Red and Epic Silver color options. The graphics processor is an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q with 8192 MB GDDR5 vRAM. It also features 16 GB RAM, 256 GB NVMe storage and an Intel Core i7-8750H processor, which is a hexa-core processor that can Turbo Boost up to 4.1 GHz. The Alienware m15 sports NVIDIA’s Max-Q design, promoting an extra level of portability. It features portability without having too much compromise on hardware performance. The cooling system of the Alienware m15 is Alienware's Cryo-Tech v2.0 thermal system which features a dual-intake, dual-exhaust airflow design, a high-voltage driving fan with 90 fan blades cooling the CPU and GPU, load balancing heat pipes across GPU and CPU, and copper fin stacks. The fans of the Alienware m15 are fire resistant liquid-crystal polymer fans. It has 3-phase fan control to create less friction and circulating air more efficiently. As for network connectivity, the standard configuration includes a Dell 802.11ac 2x2 Wi-Fi/Bluetooth 4.0 combo card. As for input/output ports, users will find a Killer Networks e2500 GbE port, two USB 3.0 ports, one USB 3.0 port with PowerShare, one Thunderbolt 3 port, one Alienware Graphics Amplifier port, HDMI 2.0, and a mini-DisplayPort 1.3. Finally, the Alienware m15 comes with a 60 Wh battery, but the user can upgrade to a longer-running 90 Wh unit. According to Dell, the 90 Wh battery can deliver up to 17 hours of runtime. Conclusively, Dell has entered the lightweight gaming laptop market with a fairly good attempt to compete with existing competitors in the market. The company has successfully delivered a device featuring sleek design and solid performance, although it’s still not the best in the market yet. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

The Alienware m15 makes good on its slim form with lots of gaming grunt and long battery life. It's a very solid 15-inch gaming laptop, though a few bits—bezels, body materials—need sprucing up.

Alienware's first ultra-thin laptop maintains the spirit of the original Alienware 15 R4 while propelling the series forward into the super-light gaming category. Of course, some sacrifices had to be made when moving to a smaller design, but it's mostly a success especially in terms of Turbo Boost performance and chassis rigidity.

There’s no question there are plenty of slimmer gaming laptop options out there. With its advanced thermal cooling technology, sleek gaming design, and various customizable options, the Alienware m15 definitely meets the criteria for a gaming laptop.

In a vacuum, the m15 is impressive: it’s thinner and lighter than prior Alienware laptops, while still providing an excellent gaming experience and surprisingly good battery life when you’re not gaming. But it does not exist in a vacuum, and it’s not as thin, light, well-designed, or immersive as its competition. Even with a starting price that undercuts Razer, MSI, and others, the Alienware m15 doesn’t stand out.

The Alienware m15 OLED offers undeniable performance in a package that avoids the pitfalls of many gaming laptops: egregious size. It’s slim and light enough to go into an average backpack, but it’s potent enough to work hard and play hard. Throw in a decent battery and a stunning display, and it’s an excellent machine. The price of this model does hold it back some, though. While it’s cheaper than Razer’s upcoming Razer Blade with OLED display, that model with have some higher-end internals contributing to the price and DisplayHDR certification. Meanwhile, plenty of other gaming laptops can offer similar performance to the Alienware m15 at significantly lower prices with the only major trade-off being that they’ll have an LCD display with a high-refresh rate and 1080p resolution.

Source: Laptop Mag English
How do you make a great laptop even better? By adding a seriously beautiful OLED display to the slimmest laptop in Alienware's catalog and not skimping on high-powered components. This is easily one of the most satisfying gaming laptops I've tested this year. I just wish the fun lasted longer on a charge. If you want a slim gaming rig for less money, the Razer Blade 15's ($2,599) is $180 cheaper than the m15 and a faster SSD. But if you're looking for an incomparable viewing experience, the Alienware m15 OLED is the gaming laptop for you.

That said, this laptop doesn’t necessarily need to suffer for the sins of its parents. The OLED display is love-at-first-sight for me. Maybe not “I don't care that it costs $1,000 more than some laptops with comparable performance” love, but...well, depends what you care about. I could certainly see someone making the argument at least, and the m15’s internals perform well enough to do the display justice. After all, if you’re buying a screen that looks this damn good, you want whatever’s on it to look good too, right?

I still think the RTX 2070 Max-Q is in a weird spot, what with full-size GTX 1070 laptops remaining on the market, performing basically the same and usually priced much lower. And I think this particular Alienware m15 is in an even weirder spot, given there’s an m15 redesign already announced.

The Alienware m15 performs precisely in line with our expectations, that is, excellent frame rates while gaming and short render times in both Lightroom and Premiere Pro. Where it falters is in poor thermals, with the WASD keys getting as hot as 46 degrees. Regardless, the Alienware m15 makes for a great gaming system that will definitely turn heads.

Alienware m15 (R2) review: Hands-on
Source: Tech Advisor English
Until we spend more time with the m15, we can't really judge how well it holds up - but on paper it has top specs for the form factor (except for limited RAM) and some seriously tempting display options. From the outside though, there's not much to complain about here. Those big ol' bezels are gone, the keyboard's stepped up, and the Legend design looks lush. This is exactly what an Alienware laptop should look like in 2019 - let's just hope it delivers on the promise.

85.3% Alienware m15 P79F (i7-8750H, RTX 2070 Max-Q, OLED) Review | Notebookcheck
OLED is amazing, but it's not the holy grail of display technologies. A few key disadvantages outside of the pricier MSRP mean there are still good reasons to choose IPS depending on your usage scenario.

83% The Area-51m mini-me: Dell Alienware m15 R2 Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
If you've ever wanted the 17.3-inch Alienware Area-51m desktop replacement but wished it was smaller, then the 15.6-inch Alienware m15 R2 should fit the bill. The new model is a complete design overhaul of last year's Alienware m15 R1 that unfortunately feels more like a lateral step sideways instead of a big leap forward.

To sum it up, the top variant of the Alienware M15 R3 is a great laptop, but is hard to recommend to hardcore gamers despite its crazy specifications, mainly because of that display. I also would have loved slightly better thermal performance, and of course a lower price.

Alienware m15 R2 review: Power in a stylish and portable package
Source: Good Gear Guide English
Alienware’s been firing on all cylinders recently, and if you’re in the market for a laptop I’d absolutely recommend giving the lower-priced m15 R2’s a look. They’re beautiful, they’re durable, and as an added benefit? They come in black. After all, if you’re going to pay this much for a luxury machine, you don’t want it getting scratched the first time you take it out—no matter how futuristic the white version looks. Forget Dieter Rams. Richard Sapper had it right.

Thanks to all of that extra-fast hardware, the Alienware m15 R2 turns in the best performance we've seen in a 15" notebook. The system's good looks, excellent performance, and gorgeous display option make for an extremely attractive package, too. If you're in the market for a well-endowed notebook to take to your dorm or your next LAN party, this Alienware notebook should be on your short list of systems to check out. For that reason, we bestow upon the m15 R2 Hot Hardware's Approved award.

Alienware m15 R2 review: Eye-catching design comes with eye-tracking tech
Source: Pocket Lint English
We were immediately impressed by the Alienware m15 R2 when we first saw it at Computex 2019. Now having used it at home in the real world, it certainly didn't disappoint. Apart from a few minor niggles with battery life, a small main drive, and odd issues with footage capture, it's an absolute marvel of a machine. The 4K display option is absolutely stunning, HDR, ray tracing and eye-tracking are all added bonuses. The m15 R2 manages to perform well under pressure and without a typically obnoxious loud fan. Not that things don't get noisy if you really want them to of course. There's no doubt that on looks alone, both on-screen and off, the m15 R2 is well worth your investment. It will cost you a pretty penny though.

Source: Gadgets Now 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.

Currently, you can get a gaming laptop in a similar configuration at a far lower cost than the Alienware M15 R3. Alienware needs to take a few pages out of Dell’s XPS’ diary and focus on continual annual improvements. They have a great product, and just by sorting out a few issues like cooling and setting a competitive price will make help return the Alienware return to its former glory.

The Alienware m15 R4 is a good gaming laptop with a compact form-factor. Dell put a high-powered GPU and a 300 Hz screen in a .8” thick chassis here, without skimping on the build quality, IO, and keyboard. At the same time, though, the battery life is terrible on this 300 Hz configuration that doesn't support Optimus, and the laptop runs fairly noisy and hot. These, and a couple of other small problems, make this m15 not the right choice for me, but it could be for you.

80% Dell Alienware m15 R4 review (2021 model – RTX 3070 Laptop, 300 Hz screen)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
The Alienware m15 R4 is a good gaming laptop with a compact form-factor. Dell put a high-powered GPU and a 300 Hz screen in a .8” thick chassis here, without skimping on the build quality, IO, and keyboard. At the same time, though, the battery life is terrible on this 300 Hz configuration that doesn't support Optimus, and the laptop runs fairly noisy and hot. These, and a couple of other small problems, make this m15 not the right choice for me, but it could be for you.

The Alienware m15 R4 is easily one of the best gaming laptops I’ve ever reviewed. And, to be fair, for $2,150 (at least!), it really should be. You do indeed get what you pay for, between a powerful GPU, a fast SSD, a gorgeous design and a vibrant screen.

The new system isn't a run-out-and-buy-one temptation for owners of RTX 2080 laptops, but being able to more plausibly play with ray tracing might appeal to some. And those upgrading from an older gaming rig should be truly excited. This isn't a ground-breaking laptop in and of itself, but is still an improved—or should we say, Ampered up?—version of a system we can highly recommend.

Overall, the Alienware m15 R4 is an exceptional gaming notebook. Thanks to its top-notch cooling system with a pair of big blower fans and heat pipes galore, frame rate stability was just as blisteringly-fast at the end of our testing as it was at the start. That alone should be worth something to gamers on the go. Add that performance to Alienware's head-turning space age industrial design, Tobii eye tracking and 4K OLED display eye candy, and it's easy to see why we're giving this Alien our coveted Editor's Choice award.

80% Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition review
Source: Laptop Mag English
Alienware and AMD make a good team as evidenced by the Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition. The laptop delivered impressive overall performance and respectable gaming performance thanks to its AMD Ryzen processor and Nvidia RTX 3060 GPU. Plus, you get a beautiful display, powerful speakers and a comfy keyboard, in an all-too-stunning package. And while I’m pleased with the $1,779 price, I really would like to see this configuration with an RTX 3070 so it can give competing laptops more of a fight. As it stands, it can play games at playable frame rates, but it wasn’t blowing out the competition. And the battery life leaves much to be desired. If you’re looking for high frame rates, the $2,999 Razer Blade 15 Advanced Model is the way to go. If multitasking power and endurance is your thing, then the incredibly affordable $1,499 Asus ROG Strix G15 Advantage Edition is your laptop. But if you’re a fan of Alienware and AMD, the Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition in its stylish glory is a great choice.

80% Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition R5 review: 1080p AMD gaming with style
Source: CNet English
Old flagship gaming laptops never die, they just fade into the neutral zone. That's what's become of Alienware's m15 laptop line with the introduction of its thinner, more cutting-edge and far more expensive x15 line. The company seems to differentiate between the two by the display choices; it tags the Intel-based R6 models as the ones with "boundary-breaking visuals," which translates to... 1440p G-Sync display options. Along with the repositioning, Alienware brings back its first AMD CPU-based m15 in a l-o-o-o-ng time.

80% Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition R5 (2021) review
Source: Tech Advisor English
The Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition R5 gets plenty of things right considering its low price. On the inside, the RTX 3060 delivers solid mainstream gaming ability and the AMD Ryzen 5 5800H is a superb option for mainstream workloads and content-creation (if 74% Adobe RGB is ok), and the Alienware also serves up a good IPS display, a satisfying keyboard and bold, familiar aesthetics. In some areas, there are inevitable compromises. The trackpad and speakers both disappoint. External connectivity is good for gaming, but not for some workloads. Battery life is fine, if underwhelming, and this machine does get hot under duress. It’s thicker and heavier than plenty of 15.6in gaming laptops, too. These are not surprises, though, and they’re not issues that you’ll solve without lots more cash. The m15 R5 gets the most important things right making it an ideal candidate if you want a gaming laptop that won’t break the bank.

75% Alienware M15 R5 Ryzen Edition Review: The Right Parts At A High Price
Source: The Verge English
The M15 R5’s performance didn’t come into question during my testing. I don’t think I’ll ever tire of seeing the great battery life AMD’s processors bring, and it’s great that this GPU can hold its own next to pricier components like the RTX 3070. But as a whole, Alienware missed the landing when it comes to value. If you want more features for your money, even if it involves swapping some of the M15 R5’s power for a QHD screen and better portability, you should look elsewhere. The M15 R5 isn’t the jaw-dropping value that it needed to be (and that I’d hoped it would be) to steer everyone away from the 2021 gaming laptop frontrunner (so far), the Asus ROG Zephyrus G15.

Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition R5 Review: Zen 3 Laptop Invasion
Source: Hot Hardware English
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.

Lisa Gade reviews the Alienware m15 R5 Ryzen edition 15.6” gaming laptop with their updated “Legend” design that we’ll also see in the just announced Alienware m15 R6 with Intel 11th gen CPUs. The R5 is available with AMD Zen 3 Ryzen 7 5800H and Ryzen 9 5900HX 8-core processors and NVIDIA RTX 3060 and 3070 graphics. 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. We cover benchmarks, thermals and noise, and compare it with the last gen R4, Asus ROG Strix and Lenovo Legion 5 Pro.

73% Alienware M15 Ryzen Edition R5 Review – Promising Move Forward
Source: Pokde English
The Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition R5 is certainly a powerful gaming machine but some of its missing elements make it feel like you’re missing the full experience. You get powerful performance, good RAM and storage configuration, Wi-Fi 6, HDMI 2.1, one of the best keyboards on a laptop with per-key RGB lighting, 165Hz refresh rate, and a useful Alienware software suite in a portable, yet attractive body. However, the reduction of ports is seen as an odd choice, CPU thermals could be improved, it is a little bit on the heavy side, and it is pricey as this variant starts at RM9,199. At the end of our Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition R5 review, I award this with our Silver Pokdeward.

I had some high hopes for this model and feel a little let down. The extremely high CPU temps out of the box was probably the worst offender to me, that is, until I discovered that the GPU is not using all of its CUDA cores. The reduced IO is another thing that kind of threw me off, and the speakers got worse. But I can’t ignore some of the pros to this model. The Ryzen CPU is a nice one to have, as the battery life and performance are very good, and the Cherry MX keyboard is phenomenal! We'll get in-depth on all these down below.

86.1% Alienware m15 R6 laptop review: More efficient, but the RTX 3080 is slower than in the predecessor | Notebookcheck
Wait a minute, another m15? Yes, after the m15 R5 with a Ryzen processor now comes the m15 R6 with an Intel CPU, which brings the usual advantages and disadvantages (keyword Thunderbolt). Of course, the new Tiger Lake processor is more efficient and also faster than the Comet Lake predecessor in the R4, but Dell applies the emergency brakes in the 3D performance, and the R4 also still has something to say here.

80% Alienware M15 R6 review: Keyboard overlord
Source: Pocket Lint English
The Alienware M15 R6 doesn't seem quite as dynamic as some of its rivals in a few areas. It uses a middle-weight version of the Nvidia RTX 3080 graphics card when some have a version that can suck up more juice when you let the fans spin faster. And it lacks a few of the niceties of the top Razer and Lenovo models. You don't get a particularly great touchpad and look of the thing is stuck in a cautious middle-ground between gaming laptops that stick to the classic brash “gamer” style and something more serious and plain. There's nothing wrong with that, it's just our take on the style used here. However, the Alienware M15 R6 will tear through all of today's games beautifully and it has a great keyboard, which should never be undervalued. It would shine even brighter if the underlying plate were a little stiffer, but this keyboard is brilliant for both work and gaming.
