Alienware M14x r2
Great design; Runs mostly cool; Powerful specs good enough to play current games at high settings; No bloatware; Lighting system is fun to play around with; Hybrid drive is fast enough to not miss SSD.
Good overall performance, Cache drive boosts access speed, Highly customizable, Attractive gaming-oriented design.
Solid build quality, Beautiful 1600 x 900 display, Excellent sound system
Reasonably compact for a gaming laptop, Solid construction, Customizable lighting effects, Plenty of onboard ports
Cool design, "Good enough performance" for most serious gamers while on the road, AlienFX lighting is still awesome
Sleek design; Vivid display with wide viewing angles; Customizable lighting; Solid performance and graphics
Rubberized body easily catches dust.
Delivers less-than-optimal DX11 frame rates, Not fastest in every application, Display not full HD.
Offers poor performance value, Lacks broad appeal
Gaming performance could be better at screen's native resolution, Display is reflective, Loud exhaust fans, Limited graphics-chip options
Still a horrible glossy screen, Still thick and heavy, Powerful, but not "best in class"
Runs slightly hot when gaming; A tad expensive
