Most of the manufacturers today are trying to make their laptops as thin as possible, unlike the M17x R4 by Alienware which is completely different. The 17-inch laptop is powered by the Ivy Bridge Core i7-3610, which is a 45W CPU with the normal speed of 2.3GHz, and can be clocked up to 3.3 GHz. Even though you have the Intel HD Graphics 7000 for dealing with everyday tasks, Alienware provides AMD Radeon HD 7970M for your gaming needs. The GPU comes with 1,280 pixel shaders and 2GB of RAM.
With the graphics card engaged, Crysis was running at an FPS of 42 in the full HD mode. You have to switch to the very high quality mode in Crysis for the game to go below 40 fps. The audio is very refined as far as laptops are concerned and the Klipsch speakers in the system provide crisp sound through the front grill.
The keypad is back-lit, which is a standard for the series and comes with a lot of cushioned break. The connectivity options are also very good and you get four USB 3.0 ports, a miniDisplay port, HDMI port, and Gigabit Ethernet along with SD card reader.
You get a lot of options for customization as well. You can decide between different CPUs and hard disk setups which include SSD boot drives, RAID arrays and dual hard drive setups. You can also swap between Nvidia and AMD graphics cards. Considering the hardware specs on offer, the price is bound to be quite high.
