Given its limited resolution of 1600×900, the performance on the GT 650M is slightly better than what you would get on a GTX 660M at 1080p. And if you opt for the basic level 1366×768 screen, the M14x R2 will give you even higher frame rates.The...

There's certainly a lot to like about the Alienware M14x R2 in terms of portability, its productivity performance, and the build quality. It also has a great keyboard for a gaming rig, and it starts out at a relatively modest £999. That's all well and...

From the outside there's little to differentiate Alienware's R2 version of its M14x laptop, but inside it's a generational leap from the original. Designed around the recently released mobile Ivy Bridge processors, it's a desktop replacement at heart,...
