So is it worth your hard-earned money? As always – it depends. If you are looking for solid cooling performance, excellent image quality and portability, the GL702VI will probably be your best shot.

It also does a great job of cooling down the hardware, feels more premium, offers better upgradability in terms of storage and RAM, and offers overclockable CPU for the enthusiasts. And as for the Alienware, it’s more in between but fails to really beat any of the above mentioned in any aspect, except build quality.

A laptop with this weight is comparatively heavy and less designed for mobility than for use at the desk. Therefore, the devices tend to shine less with battery life than with a large screen and higher performance.
