Source: Techradar English
Alienware’s brilliant 15-inch gaming beast, the M15, just got a little bit better thanks to design tweaks and new components. But, it’s still painfully pricey.

80% Alienware m17 R3 review

The Alienware m17 R3 lives at the intersection of beauty and power. The laptop is one of the lightest desktop replacements on the market and sports a sophisticated design you don’t often see in gaming laptops. But beyond its stunning good looks, you have a laptop loaded with some seriously powerful components that deliver the high level of performance you’d expect from a notebook of this caliber. Throw in a lovely 4K display and a comfortable keyboard and you’ve got the makings of a good time.
