Reviews for the Alienware x15 R1-JH85R
Source: Trusted Reviews
The Alienware x15 R1 impresses with its design, performance and screen – it’s one of the best gaming laptops around right now. It also includes a great keyboard and it’s a solid thermal performer. That said, it’s worth looking elsewhere if you want more ports or better battery life, and you’ll have to be careful about which version you buy.

On the whole, the Alienware x15 is a more successful redesign than the x17, and a good gaming laptop. The slimmer chassis and slight bump in weight make more sense at 15 inches, and the performance was more in line with what we'd expect. The system's portability and raw power don't blow us away, but it's a good mix of the two. If you're shopping in the $2,000-plus gaming tier, this is one of the better options out there. It's not the best of the bunch, however: The Razer Blade 15 Advanced Edition we reviewed was a bit more expensive (though playing with configurations can fix that), but offered a superior GPU, more storage, longer battery life, and a lighter design. Razer's flagship remains our favorite cost-no-object gaming rig, but if you like the Alienware's design, it's a solid alternative.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
