Reviews for the Alienware x15 R1, i9-11900H RTX 3080 FHD
The Alienware x15 R1 is quite simply the best gaming laptop on the market right now with best in class performance and a design that sets it apart in all the right ways. A laptop this powerful, though, runs hot and some might take issue with the display, but we sure don't. It looks and plays gorgeous, and needs to be on the top of everyone's list – assuming you have the budget for it, that is.

The X15 makes less sense, very little I would say. It’s heavier and larger than the competition without a significant CPU/GPU advantage, since most performance 15-inch ultraportables offer up to 100W RTX graphics these days. It also lacks the CherryMX keyboard available on the X17, so I’d reckon it would need to be aggressively priced for customers to pick it over something like a Blade 15. To wrap this up, I’ll advise you to wait for detailed reviews if you’re interested in any of these products. We’ll most likely not have them here on the site, since we’re not on Dell’s good graces for review samples, and I don’t think getting one of these just for review is worth it for us. I’d love to hear your thoughts on them in the comments section down below, though, if you end up getting any of these.
