Alienware Area-51 m15x Laptop

What You Need to Know

  • The case design has a much more subtle look, which i like.
  • Alienware has their command center which allows you to change all the lights to plenty of colors; this gives it a serious sense of style.
  • The touch sensitive buttons are convenient, but don't always work which can get annoying
  • The glossy silver finish is nice, but it does collect a lot of dirt and grime from gamer fingers
  • It's actually relatively thin and not too heavy
  • They offer expandable hard drives up to 320 gigs and a Blu-ray burner that you can swap out while the computer is on
  • It's nice to have these options, but you're paying at least $150 extra for it
  • It's probably just easier to buy a larger hard drive and not worry about it
  • It crushes the competition in processing tests like encoding and Photoshop; you actually will be able to play Crysis
  • Gaming is incredibly smooth; 15-20 frames per second on Crysis at 1280x960 with all high settings, which is incredible


  • These start at $1,500, but one maxed out with all the best specs will cost you about $4,700
  • It can't hurt to customize something for about $2,500
  • This is definitely a reasonable price for arguably the best gaming laptop out there
  • If you need one, buy this
