    Alienware 17 laptop review

Alienware’s approach to gaming laptops is simple: screw subtle design and sleek ergonomics in favour of humungous machines built around super-fast tech and covered in coloured LEDs.

The Alienware 17 is one such beast. Its weight (4kg) and size (5cm deep) make it more suited to a small trailer than a rucksack and it has 10 ‘light zones’ that can be customised in one of 20 colours.  Even the packaging makes it look like something found in Area 51.

Complaining about the size and weight of the Alienware 17 is missing the point, really – this laptop is all about no-compromise gaming, and in this it excels.

OK, so the styling won't be to everyone's tastes and it's a long way from cheap, but if fragging is your thing, this beast of a machine will be your new best friend.
