Reviews for the Alienware x15 R1-JYMD9
Source: Mobile Tech Review
The Alienware X series of gaming laptops are a new design for 2021 with 4-fan cooling and silicone gallium thermal paste. Available in 15” and 17” sizes as the Alienware x15 and x17, we review both. These slim gaming laptops have Intel 11th gen H series CPUs and NVIDIA RTX 3060/3070/3080 dedicated graphics. Display options range from high refresh full HD to QHD 240Hz (x15) and 4K 120Hz (x17). The Alienware x15 and x17 have a healthy selection of ports including Thunderbolt 4, Wi-Fi 6E, per key RGB lighting with Tron lights and an optional Cherry MX keyboard on the x17.

The Alienware x15 is a smart, super-thin gaming laptop with a top-notch display that runs faster than any laptop we’ve ever tested. That’s pretty much all most potential buyers will need to know. The speaker system could be more accommodating to non-gaming sources, the port selection could be wider and the keyboard backlight could light all of the key labels, but I think these are ultimately rather minor quibbles. None of this detracts from a notebook that quantifiably improves your gaming experience, and if performance is at the top of your laptop-buying agenda, there’s simply no better choice.

Alienware's new X15 is basically a case study in thermal engineering, as well as industrial design and feature trade-offs. The Alienware team at Dell engineered the heck out of this machine's thermal solution, but it costs the machine some creature comforts as a result. We would have appreciated even one USB-C port on one side edge of this laptop. And locating its microSD card slot on a side edge would have been glorious too, but it just wasn't in the cards apparently, having to accommodate the X15's quad-blower cooling solution. That quad-cooling solution is also a first for us, as we've never seen this in a laptop of any kind before, but it also drove the need to eliminate SO-DIMM socketed RAM in the machine. So again, with the X15 it's all about trade-offs. You get a fantastic, futuristic-looking, just a hair over 5lb laptop here, with great gaming chops, especially for its size and weight class. However, in exchange for its classy chassis and industrial design features, there are obvious concessions that needed to be made.
