Reviews for the Alienware x17 R1, i9-11900HK RTX 3080 FHD

All told the Alienware X17 R1 is a great gaming package. There's plenty on offer here, including great specification and visual design, in a slim-yet-powerful package that does little wrong. We only have a few minor complaints about the setup - some of which could be combatted by just ensuring you make the right choices in terms of the spec options. That 512GB drive, for example, is far too small for most modern games. The Alienware X17 R1 continues the company's trend of releasing cracking gaming laptops. It's out of this world.

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.
