If you’re looking for a proper desktop replacement -- replacing a gaming desktop, that is -- the Alienware M18x is undoubtedly the notebook to pick. It’s massive and has a price tag that’s painful, but its performance is almost...

It turns out that the Alienware M18x is also an outstanding gaming notebook when fitted with two GeForce GTX 580M graphics cards in SLI mode. Weighing over 5.5 kg, its portability is severely limited, but at least it can be easily moved from one desk...

In the beginning, we were skeptical of the M18x. Alienware's 18 inch "monster" does not exactly fit into any of the current trends, and most buyers do not go above the 17 inch range. However, after our in-depth testing of this laptop, we have to...
