Reviews for the Alienware m17 R2-C7XD9

80% Alienware m17 R2 Review
Source: Tom's Guide English
Alienware has pulled off something impressive with the m17 R2. It's a relatively slim package that's packing a major punch in performance, and it doesn't look too bad, either. The white soft-touch finish is classy and the keyboard is a dream to type on. The glossy plastic around the screen and speaker grill does look a little cheap, however, and will scratch over time.
