Reviews for the Alienware m17 R4

85.3% Alienware m17 R4 laptop review: Burning up into the atmosphere | Notebookcheck
The Alienware m17 R4 is the latest addition to Alienware's m17 lineup. Compared to the m17 R3, there's a brand new RTX 3000 graphics card, but the CPU is identical to the predecessor's top configuration. The new 360 Hz display is also currently one of the fastest on the market.

The Alienware m17 R4 offers brilliant gaming power, a great screen, impressive connectivity and a top-notch keyboard – but it isn’t perfect. The CPU is beaten by rivals, this machine is heavy, and battery life is poor. It’s an excellent big gaming laptop – but it isn’t infallible, and neither is it cheap.

Alienware m17 R4 Review
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
Lisa Gade reviews the early-mid 2021 refresh of the Alienware M17 R4 17.3” slim gaming laptop with NVIDIA RTX 3060, 3070 and 3080 16GB max mobile wattage GPUs and Intel 8-core i7 and i9 CPU options with vapor chamber cooling. We test the i7 with RTX 3070. There’s a new 360Hz full HD G-Sync display option (our unit) in addition to the existing 144Hz full HD and 4K wide gamut displays. The laptop is available with per key and zone AlienFX backlit RGB keyboards and there’s a new Cherry MX mechanical keyboard option. For those who prefer a smaller size, there’s the similarly spec-d Alienware m15 R4 with higher thermals. In this review we focus on gaming temperatures and fps, internals, benchmarks and the new 360Hz display quality. We did not enable Alienware’s new TCC thermal offset for our tests.

The Alienware m17 R4 is lightning quick, with solid design, a great screen and an impressive keyboard. It falls victim to the usual gaming laptop flaws of heavy design and poor battery life, but this expensive beast is a top-quality, high-end option for those that don't need portability.
