Reviews for the Alienware x14 i9 RTX 3060

80% Alienware x14 R1 review
Source: Laptop Mag English
I said it once, I’ll say it again, the Alienware x14 is one of the cutest little UFOs I’ve ever seen. But don’t confuse cute with weak, because with an Intel 12th Gen Intel Alder Lake processor and Nvidia’s 3060 GPU, the laptop is anything but. On the contrary, it consistently delivered solid frame rates on our gaming benchmarks and nearly dominated on all of our overall performance tests. Plus, it’s got a comfy keyboard and great sound for such a small system. However, for $2,067, I expect a more vivid display and better battery life. For that and more gaming power overall, you should check out the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 ($2,499). But if you’re looking for a great on-the-go gaming laptop with a comfy keyboard, great sound and a gorgeous design, check out the Alienware x14 R1.
