Alienware M18x Test

Alienware M18x

tested by hardwareheaven

Battery performance was recorded in three scenarios. The first during general use with tasks such as writing in Word, surfing the net, watching YouTube and listening to some music. For movie playback we were running a 3D Blu-Ray in fullscreen mode with 75% volume and gaming was a session of BulletStorm at 1920×1080 with maximum detail. Charge time was recorded while the system ran in general use mode.

this system is a desktop replacement without doubt and has a significant weight to it thanks to the tough, metal outer shell and large display with high end components/cooling inside. These factors do count towards build quality in a positive way though because the M18x feels well build, looks great and has an epic feel to the screen.
