In an age where people are starting to move more towards smaller laptops, this way of thinking is not something that gamers will ever entertain, as they still enjoy having a large 17-inch device to play their favorite games on. The new Alienware 17 laptop for 2015 is a fine example of this, as it sticks with the large screen size, although has made improvements so that its overall size is slimmer, and in turn lighter.
This latest model is not only beefier in terms of its performance, but is aided by a Graphics Amplifier to boot. Early reviews show this to be a pretty decent fully-fledged gaming machine with a flexible desktop mode, and a decent screen. However, all is not perfect because the laptop is still on the expensive side, and the Amplifier performance can often be bottlenecked.
We have come across an in-depth 2015 Alienware 17 gaming laptop review, which has also been testing out the Graphics Amplifier to see how well the two perform with one another. However, all is not great, which you will be able to find out more of in the review.
Before you do, we thought you might want to know about some of the basics, such as the new Alienware 17 specs, which you can see in the image above. The price has been detailed on this page of the review, although they did decide to upgrade a few of the components in order to get a better result in terms of gaming performance.
If you would rather watch a video review of this new gaming laptop rather then read one, then we have addressed that by adding one for your viewing pleasure below.
