Dell is throwing in a year of onsite or in-home repair service at no additional cost. The Alienware m15 R4 is the newest gaming laptop from Dell and not some older configuration on clearance.

Unlike a lot of other gaming laptops out there, the Alienware laptop series is named in such a way that it's very easy to tell which models are newer or older. The Alienware m15 R4 is the latest 15.6-inch model succeeding the Alienware m15 R3 and, by extension, the R2 and R1.

Dell is currently shipping its Alienware m15 R4 model with a full year of onsite/in-home services for no additional fees. Such warranty options typically aren't included in the standard one-year limited warranty.

The Core specifications are also respectable considering the price and high-end chassis. Users are getting an octa-core Comet Lake-H CPU, 144 Hz display with 3 ms response times and full sRGB coverage, and a GeForce RTX 3060 GPU with G-Sync support. We can't confirm the target TGP of the GPU, however, which can range from 60 W to as high as 115 W on paper. We can only assume that the laptop is aiming for a high TGP ceiling since this is an Alienware, after all.

Keep in mind that the current configuration comes with a standard membrane-based integrated keyboard with four-zone RGB lighting. Dell is set to launch SKUs with brand new Cherry mechanical keys next month. The Alienware m15 R4 is otherwise visually identical to the m15 R3 with no major external changes. Expect our full review on the m15 R4 in the weeks ahead.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
