Reviews for the Alienware x17 R2 P48E
Most ultrathin gaming laptops strike a careful balance between performance, noise, and power consumption. The Alienware x17 R2, on the other hand, shows no shame maximizing performance even if it means a louder and more power-hungry system.

Regardless, the premium build quality of this machine is significantly nicer than the competitive MSI product. And if Alienware's Legend 2.0 design language catches your eye like it does ours, you have to agree it's one of the best looking gaming laptops on the market right now. We'd like a USB-C port or two on either side edge, but otherwise this is a well-behaved, slim and sleek beauty with serious gaming horsepower on board. Software and firmware updates can be tweaked and optimized, but hardware is locked down for the most part. While it's ever-so slightly softer gaming performance versus MSI held us back from an Editor's Choice award, we still highly recommend the new Alienware x17 R2 for anyone looking for a super-premium 17-inch gaming laptop. At $4799.99 as tested, its a steep price to pay, but in this day and age especially, the Alienware x17 R2 delivers the kind of performance and no-compromise laptop gaming experience you'd expect, and it looks pretty darn slick doing it.

The Alienware x17 R2 is a force to be reckoned with. Thanks to the significant power of the new Intel 12th Gen processor and Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti GPU, it’s putting most challengers to shame. It’s got some of the fastest, if not the fastest transfer speeds I’ve seen on a laptop period and it’s got that funky, out-of-this-world look that the legion of fans love. However, for $4,799, I was expecting it to win a few more rounds of our benchmarking against similarly specced systems. Plus, I really need Alienware to step its game up on the webcam front. If unquestionable power is the name of the game, check out the MSI GE76 Raider as it has nearly identical specs and longer battery life. But if vibrant views, ultra comfortable keyboards and great audio is your bag, the Alienware x17 R2 is the gaming laptop for you.
