The Good

  • Design
  • RAM
  • Virtual Reality Ready
  • Display
  • Overclocking

The Bad

  • Fans

Design: The folks at Alienware really knocked it out of the park with the AW17R3. With an aluminum coating and an expert finish, this really feels like a piece of alien technology.
RAM: The Alienware AW17R3 can be upgraded to store 16GB of DDR4 RAM. Compared to other machines, which usually store 8GB of DDR3 RAM at the most, this model will be able to keep up with intense gaming requirements for years to come.
Virtual Reality Ready: With its large supply of RAM and its impressive GTX970M graphics card, this laptop meets the requirements to run virtual reality games.
Display: The base resolution on the Alienware AW17R3 is 4K – nearly double the resolution rate of standard HD gaming. This means some games can be upscaled and rendered in native 4K resolution for extra in-game detail.
Overclocking: The quad-core processor runs at 2.6 gigahertz or GHz, the standard rate for most modern gaming laptops. However, the four cores of this high-end CPU can be clocked up to much higher rates, meaning it can handle the boosts that come with 4K gaming.
NoMark
Fan: The beautiful design of this machine comes at the cost of airflow, which results in the fans generating a lot of noise during intense gaming sessions.
