FIRE Laptop for Gaming
I have used this laptop for over 12 hours now of MAX graphics settings on 'New World' (the MMORPG) and it runs like a charm. And this is WHILE I was also inside a Discord voice server... So basically, nothing can stop me haha. I highly recommend this laptop. It feels and looks sleek. And even though...

YESSSSSSSSS!!!!!!
I wanted a laotop that can do anything wherever I go. I mainly bought it for work to edit videos and to play some games if I wanted to. I have the 16gb ram version and I was worried. I had YouTube playing a high quality video with discord video chat going on And Call of Duty warzone playing at the s...

My buddy still has a long way to go...
My Alienware m17 r4 has a 10870h and RTX 3080 Max P 16gb with the highest available tdp of 165w, it was the perfect desktop replacement for my old 2080 ti and r5 3600 and I paid 2200, not too bad considering the current environment
Alienware m17 R4 review: All of the gaming power, none of the bulk
The m17 is definitely not your average gaming laptop.

Recommending the Alienware m17 R4 is both easy and difficult for me. As much as I love the idea of having all this gaming performance in a portable and relatively small package, its price veers into "you can get more wi...

Verdict - m17 R4 with wasted potential
This might also be the reason for the screen flickering, which was unfortunately not only observed during stress tests but also when gaming. In addition, the surfaces get warmer than on most competitors, which reduces comfort while gaming.The Alienware m17 R4 delivers tremendous graphics performance, but it's unable to dissipate the overall system heat adequately, which results in screen flickering and very warm surfaces
$4k to burn, and can't make up my mind! I need help deciding
\-MSI GE76 Raider. \-Alienware M17 R4. The Eluktronics line of laptops is also something to look at, but I don't believe they have started shipping yet either. And the Legion 7 later this year.
Why webcams aren’t good enough
Company outfitted us with Dell Alienware m17 R3 laptops, an expensive gaming model that has built-in head tracking. The camera is a 720p with terrible image quality, worse than any Macbook. So no, I don't think Apple is below standard here.
246 mbps on Alienware M17 R4. I first noticed the horrible wifi performance (3-5 MB/s) when downloading Warzone and Cold War on Battle.net which never had a problem on any of my gaming PCs and were blazing fast to download. Lo and behold with speedtest.net I found out the wifi card is just bad. This is with GamerFirst VI installed with settings changed to make everything extreme and toggling on and off options.
