The gaudy design and weighty heft don't detract significantly from the M14X's biggest strength -- what's inside. If you don't mind getting some weird stares in the coffee shop because your keyboard is flashing red, you'll be able to play almost...

Alienware made and won an ambitious gamble with the M14x: to house all the components needed for hardcore gaming, and everything that goes with it, all in a 14-inch chassis—without overheating issues. Despite the at-times noisy fan, the M14x is a...

When we reviewed the original M14x we noted it had a solid body and high quality, branded internal components. The slightly rubberised finish was exceptional and there is minimal flex to the keyboard which has good backlighting. The same can be said...

The m14x is now the smallest Alienware laptop you can get. It's a mid-range gaming device both in spec and performance, although, at the price involved, it will come up against stiff competition with Asus' G55VW....

Although the M14x looks the same as its predecessor – and still looks cool – it’s what's on the inside that counts here. For your hard-earned pounds, this Alienware offers high levels of gaming performance and plenty of connectivity inside a portable...

If Alienware products have two defining features, it's high-performance components and neon lights and the M14X R2 is no exception.So... neon lights? Check. Thanks to Alienware's built-in 'Alienware FX' software, you can choose from a photoshop-esque...

The performance of the M14x is strong, but it doesn’t outrun some other mid-range laptops as well as one might hope. The ASUS K53T throws a wrench in the works because it manages to play Battlefield 3 nearly as well and also achieves a higher 3DMark...

The M14xr3 is the middle child of the Alienware family. It's a great performer on the gaming grid, but its 14-inch frame works against it—the screen size may make you presume it's portable, but its weight is that of a desktop replacement. And...

The Alienware M14x is a solid, reasonably powerful gaming notebook, but it has issues ... mainly related to Dell/Alienware deciding to make the M15x smaller and create the M14x. The M14x indeed takes up less space on your desk, but in order to reduce the footprint Alienware made the M14x thicker and heavier than any other 14-inch laptop on the market. The end result is a 14-inch notebook that...

The Alienware M14x manages to fill an important gap in Alienware’s mobile gaming offerings, with a laptop that’s easier to carry around than the bulky M17x and performs as well. The laptop has a pretty formidable hardware setup, is very well built,...

The M14x that we received will set you back a whopping Rs.1,19,000, which is nearly the same as the Asus G74SX. You may argue that the high price is for the small form factor and portability, but the fact is that it’s just too heavy to be truly...
