Alienware M17 Review

Latest pricing, specs and Alienware M17 gaming laptop review. How many PC games will it run? Is it a good choice for a PC gamer? Should you buy this laptop?

This Alienware laptop features a NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card, an Intel Core i7-9750H CPU and 16 GB of RAM.

You get a large screen laptop at 17.3 inches and this of course has an impact on weight, with this big screen model coming in at 11.9 lb (5.4 kg).

This gaming laptop can run Fortnite, Apex Legends, Minecraft, PUBG and GTA V - some of the the biggest PC games at a recommended level.

Alienware have engineered their M17 to be their thinnest and lightest ever 17” gaming notebooks, yet have used high-end industrial materials, such as magnesium alloy for the case, to ensure that it is strong, light, powerful and thermally efficient enough to never compromise the throbbing graphics and processors within.

The powerful GeForce RTX 2070 uses cutting-edge NVIDIA Turing architecture to deliver real-time ray-tracing technologies for hyper-realistic graphics. Yet at less than 6lbs, the M17 balances physical durability, battery life and performance in an impressive way, hence our final rating score of 99/100.

Look out for an Alienware M17 Amazon discount deal in the Black Friday 2020 sale.
