At a Glance: Alienware M15 R2 Laptop Review
With a more polished and less flashy exterior, Dell’s Alienware M15 R2 stands out from the company’s usual products. If it wasn’t for the glowing Alienware logo on the back, this system might have passed as a non-gaming laptop. But don’t let appearances deceive you; it’s got real power where it needs it.
Although this notebook does have a more professional look than we’re used to from Dell, as a gaming laptop, the Alienware M15 R2 features numerous aesthetic highlights. In addition to the aforementioned Alienware logo on the lid, this system also features an RGB LED-backlit keyboard and RGB LED lights on the power button.
This system can be configured with various hardware components, so it’s difficult to give a solid recommendation based solely on price. It appears evident, however, that the Alienware M15 R2 is built well and has an excellent thermal solution, as it handily beat out competing laptops with technically faster hardware. Thanks to its strong performance, I’d recommend it as an excellent gaming notebook.
