I like the reviews on this...yeah sure, obviously there are other series that have better capacity and drive, but for the price and what it can do...I'm hoping to get this for Xmas..I need a laptop that I can take to work...and feel confident taking it out...but I am kinda torn between the Alienware and the Predator...
Thanks for this amazing review. Do you have any idea about the date that Alienware will release new laptops in?
I like the 13" version just because of its Oled screen but I hope it can be available on the 15" version so do advise me to wait might oled screen will be available on 15"or buy this machine ?
Ty Vasquez How much does this alienware laptop cost? And for a gaming laptop who plays with the laptop unplugged it slashes game preformance in half and also for basic internet browsing and youtube its fine
He means, "what storage options are there?" There is 4 options, there is 512 gb PCIe ssd (Windows will be stored here) or 1 tb PCIe (Windows will be stored here) or a 512 PCIe SSD (Windows will be stored here) togheter with a 256gb PCIe SSD or a 1tb PCIe SSD (Windows will be stored here) togheter with another 1 tb PCIe SSD.
I have a question do these come in different colors or can you change the color of the LEDs because I want to buy a LED wireless mouse that doesn't change colors.just a question
Edit:never mind thanks for telling me:)
The 15 has more and better storage options to store all your games and movies as well as some professional programs on the SSD, has the option to get a 7820HK and a GTX 1070 as well as the 120hz, the 13 has a more colour accurate display option and (obviously) better portability.
Was on the same boat. Ordered and canceled my 15r3 because of that... Ended up ordering the 13r3 because of mobility, oled and good gaming capabilities. Im a gamer but not a hardcore one, so the screen and the 1060 do it for me.... cant wait to receive it!
I cannot find this laptop with the exact specs you are reviewing. I want this exact laptop with the i7 6700HQ GTX 1060 OLED Screen 16gb of ram and a 512ssd if you can find me a link it would be awesome
I am just a click away from ordering aw15 kaby lake core i7 , just that the 6700 suffered from serious throttling issues is what's stopping me, I mean are those issues still existing in kaby lake processors ?? and how bad is thermal throttling if there is any still...
Does this 13 inch model have the colored strips on the edges that light up to match the colors of the track pad and the alien head on the front? The larger 15 and 17 inch models have these strips, but it looks like from the video this smaller model does not. Thanks for your review!
Hey, just a quick question. I'm doubting between getting the i5 or the i7 version. Both have 256GB PCIe SSD's, GTX 1060, 16GB of RAM and a FHD screen (no oled unfortunately :( ). Price difference is 100 euros. I already wanted to go for a cheap inspiron 7567 but after all the upgrades it needs I can just as well buy the alienware and have a better, faster laptop with more ports and better build quality. Still doubting which to get. I can also get the 15" model with i7 for the same price as the but it only has a 1TB HDD.
Though decisions to make, but I want something that will last me for some years and can replace my desktop.
It beats me that in a laptop of this price they do not put an SD card reader. Huge mistake!!! Just like Dell putting a crappy TN panel in their new Inspiron 7000 (or 7567 in the US I think). Who is designing laptops at Dell these days???
I know we have a few of these at home. But you still need to carry the gizmo in your pocket or your bag when you go out. And when you are at home, you often need to be looking around for the little thing... Much more practical to have a reader built right in the laptop!
haha, ya battery life is tough to measure! Everyones results are going to be different. Laptopmag basis there tests around non real world use. So for example, just streaming a video for 7 hours. Myself and I'm pretty sure Dave Lee too, just use the laptop normally and measure based on what we do with the laptop. It's a very subjective test. With that being said, gaming laptops generally never have good battery life, especially with a 1060 inside.
Great video and thanks you sold me on this laptop. Just ordered it with the oled screen and this is my first gaming laptop. Been a console player and this is actually my first step into the pc/laptop gaming world. Also subbed!
I don't understand why the battery is so bad? Doesn't it use integrated graphics for normal tasks like sending email
And browsing web or watching YouTube? Everything should be at idle with almost no CPU usage. I don't see why it drains so bad.. is it the OLED screen?
yeah but, here in my country the "cheaper" msi, acer hp gaming laptop is almost priced same or higher than the alienware 13.. the pricing in PH is horrible.... the 500$ in US is almost at 900$ when they sell here
but yeah i guess i will wait a little more
Your "review" is so completely misleading people. I own this laptop and the trackpad is awful, it can barely scroll. The speakers are NOTHING to brag about. I hate these kind of reviews where the company sends you the product for a week for free, and you "test" it for a couple days and can't say anything bad about it or you'll lose subs.
What are you talking about it? The trackpad is good for a gaming laptop. It's not as good as the XPS 15 or 13, but good. It's quite possible you have a defective unit? Also, for a 13-inch laptop the speakers are good. As for subs, more are always great, but I have 0 issues ripping into a product. I can happily show you tons of reviews where I feel the product is not worth it at all. My integrity is more valuable and in the long run gets more subs than quick positive reviews.
I play a lot of Insurgency and my new R13 does not disappoint. Love the premium feel, lighting and especially the OLED display. Opted for the i5 CPU and 8 gb ram, which I upgraded to 16 gb. Figure I'd save me a little money since I don't do a lot of multitasking, nor have tons of tabs open and processes running in the background. Had to buy a 7 port hub though since there's only 2 USB ports; which is the only con. Every game I have thrown at it has played at 2K with everything on high. No hiccups. Love it.
Well, I guess if configure them at lower or medium specs 15 may come out even. However if you max them out in settings, 15" will be more expensive, despite OLED screen cost several times more than LCD. That easily offsets price advantage of 1060 vs 1070 card.
