    If Portability and Power had a son, this would be it, August 16, 2011

    Kevin “Im_Juice_Lee” (Florida, USA) –

    This review is from: Alienware M14x AM14X-6557STB 14-Inch Laptop (Stealth Black with Soft Touch Finish) (Personal Computers)

    I am a Computer Science major in college and wanted a laptop with power for strenuous tasks like video/photo editing, graphics work, and playing games like Civilization V, Team Fortress 2, etc. At the same time, I wanted a computer light and small enough to toss in my backpack and take around to class all day without having to bring the charger. Power and Portability – madness? Think again.

    After about 40 hours of research and reading countless reviews of over fifty different laptops (hey, for spending $1300+, I want to be well informed), I chose this one and am not disappointed in any way! The laptop blazes through my games at high frame rates while having the battery to last through hours of lectures. The seemingly indestructible solid build and fantastic keyboard just add icing to the cake. Search anywhere for something 14 inches with 6 hours of battery life and this amount of raw power – you won’t find it. If you need performance in a small package, this little monster is just what you’re looking for.

    ~~~~~
    Size – Perfection of 14 Inches
    ~~~~~

    This laptop has a 14 inch screen, which in my opinion is the perfect size. When you have a 14 inch laptop on your lap at the high resolution of 900P, you have plenty of space to do work, have two windows open at once for multitasking, and not feel cramped or limited. 14 inches is still large enough to watch movies and play games as well. At the same time, a 14 inch screen lest the laptop be small and fit into a backpack easily. Alienware has a reputation for making large computers, however it’s not true in this case. The laptop is actually not as wide as most 14 inch laptops (width as in left to right side of laptop) by 0.5 inches, however it is a bit longer (front to back) by 1 inch and thicker (top to bottom) by 0.5 inches than most laptops. In my opinion the most important dimension is width (left to right) of a laptop, and this laptop is thin in that regard. One con, however, is that the laptop is about a 1.5 pounds heavier than other 14 inch laptops. The added heft actually makes this system really durable – as a college student, I’ve dropped it over a half-dozen times, stepped on it getting out of bed, and piled heavy books ontop of it in my backpack without causing any damage. This laptop is built like a rock and will withstand some rough use.

    Here are the exact dimensions and comparison to some other products:
    1.49 X 13.27 X 10.27 @ 6.35lbs — M14X
    1.13 X 13.45 X 9.64 @ 4.65 lbs — Acer 4820TG
    1.16 X 14.01 X 9.33 @ 5.57 lbs — HP Envy 14
    1.07 X 13.60 X 9.39 @ 5.20 lbs — Sony EA series (as thick as 1.4 at the back)
    1.20 X 13.90 X 9.70 @ 5.35 lbs — Dell XPS 14
    1.10 X 13.43 X 9.26 @ 5.20 lbs — Sony C series (14 inches)
    1.50 X 10.90 X 8.40 @ 5.20lbs — One of my Textbooks
    0.70 X 9.80 X 11.00 @ 1.50lbs — 3 Subject Notebook by 5 Star (8.5 x 11 pages)
    0.01 X 8.50 X 11.00 @ 0.01lbs? — Piece of Paper (lol)
    0.34 X 9.50 X 7.31 @ 1.34lbs — iPad 2 (WiFi) held in landscape mode
    0.95 X 12.78 X 8.94 @ 4.50lbs — MacBook Pro 13
    0.95 X 14.35 X 9.82 @ 5.60lbs — MacBook Pro 15
    1.29 X 11.25 X 9.19 @ 4.40lbs — M11X R3
    1.75 X 16.14 X 11.96 @ 9.39lbs — M17X R3 (as thick as 1.77 at the back)

    ~~~~~~
    Battery Life
    ~~~~~~

    Battery Life really varies greatly – but you can guestimate it based on 4 settings: brightness, WiFi on/off, alien FX on/off (the glowing lights all over the computer), and battery mode (power saver, balanced, or high performance). The nice thing about this laptop is that it has Nvidia Optimus technology which allows the battery hungry powerful graphics card to only kick in when you’re doing something that requires it (THIS SAVES A TON OF BATTERY!!).

    I ran a few tests and here are my results:
    Web Surfing from 100% to 5% battery with wifi on, powersaver mode, brightness 2 / 7, alien FX off: 5 hours and 45 mins
    Web Surfing from 100% to 5% battery with wifi on, balanced mode, brightness 5/7, alien FX on: 3 hours 20 mins

    By default, the computer’s power options sets it up so that the full power of the graphics card will only activate when you plug the computer into an outlet (even in high performance mode). So to get max performance, either plug in the power cord or tweak the settings. The problem with tweaking the settings to allow full power of the Graphics card on battery mode is that sometimes the graphics card requires more power than what can be provided by the battery on its own and forces a computer shutdown. People on forums solved this problem by going into the BIOS and capping the CPU at 75% on battery high performance mode which fixes the power overdraw shut-off problem. In short, just bring your power cable if you need to full graphics and processing power.

    I have had this laptop for about 2 weeks now and it is still the best laptop for the price. The processor is lightning fast, the screen is sharp, the alienfx is a really nice feature, and the klipsch speakers are amazing for a little laptop. It did not come preloaded with a bunch of crap software, and runs nicely. I love this laptop. No complaints whatsoever.

    I’ve had this laptop for a little less then a month now. It is a fantastic computer. The specs match what is listed here perfectly, and the seller did a fantastic job getting the computer to me quickly and safely.

    The computer plays all my games flawlessly. It is very efficient, with impressive battery length with customized settings when unplugged. Graphics are absolutely beautiful, and I can run anything I throw at this thing with highest graphic settings without lag at all.

    The backlit keyboard and AlienFX are neat features, they always impress. Great to show off with.

    Honestly, people always rag on me saying Alienware overcharges and isn’t worth the money. This computer is totally worth the price – any comparable machines are going to be around this price and not nearly as flashy. If you’re looking for a high performance computer with wow power, this is the one for you.
