The Alienware 17, of course, has a predictable price. For this, let’s not go without mentioning the following question that may immediately come to mind at the beginning of our review. Especially desktop side of the X99 platform and DDR4 ‘s emerged in a period of the game, although high-performance Although the water, how much sense to pay high sums to a laptop? The answer to this question lies in the user’s choice. Of course, our preference will be for the desktop computer at this point.

Among them, Asus , Monster , MSI , Gigabyte and Toshiba are notable brands. But today, our topic is Alienware 17. Let’s take a closer look at the monster …
The Alienware 17 , which has a powerful design as well as physically strong with its design , shows that it is special for gamers with each element. The laptop, which has Alienware’s strong logo on its cover, has lighting areas at different points starting from the back and going down to the inside and bottom of the case. Moreover, these lights are not in fixed colors. It is possible to change each of them as you wish. We’ll come back to that shortly.
The Alienware 17 has a large body as well as a powerful look. This means that it has both a thick body and a heavy case. For this reason, it can be troublesome to carry the laptop, which weighs approximately 4 kilograms , with you. It is also necessary to add the adapter you have to take with it. But of course it is portable as a result, so you can throw home-play parties with your friends . By the way, let’s also mention that Alienware is a stylish solution for those who do not want to separate their laptop. Alienware arms and backpacks can be found as accessories in the mold that reflects the aggressiveness of the laptop.
Now let ‘s get to the curious technical staff of Alienware 17 and their impact on performance. At its heart is the Core i7-4910MQ , one of Intel’s powerful processors . This 4-core processor works between 2.90 GHz base and 3.90 GHz ceiling frequencies. The internal graphics processor of the processor, which was released in the first quarter of 2014, is the Intel HD Graphics 4600. Of course, Alienware 17 is not satisfied with this. The laptop, which strengthens the graphics hand with Nvidia GeForce GTX880M , offers 8 GB capacity.
When we look at the RAM capacity, we see exactly 32 GB. The laptop, which also includes SSD as storage space, offers 256 GB SSD for performance and 1 TB HDD for large space. In the meantime, let’s say that the laptop runs with the Windows 8.1 operating system and let’s move on to the performance notes.
With Alienware 17, you can easily play the strongest games of the market right now. We played popular games like Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag , Metro: Last Light , Need For Speed and BioShock Infinite as long as we had the laptop at hand . It is possible to say that we got extremely satisfactory results in each of them at the highest level of graphic details.
Let’s share the results of Metro: Last Light Benchmark with you at this point.
So what’s the battery performance of the Alienware 17? There are models that focus on game performance and are also ambitious with battery life. However, it is hard to say that the Alienware 17 is too ambitious in this regard. As a result of our tests, we observed a performance of about 2 hours and 50 minutes . Not bad, but not good either. For example, the battery performance of the Asus G750 can exceed 3 hours and 30 minutes.
Special for players
Now let’s come to the subject of special lighting that we talked about in the design part of our review. Alienware 17 comes with software called Alienware Command Center . Thanks to this software, you have the opportunity to change the lighting in all areas of the laptop as you wish. Alienware Command Center, divided into different sections named AlienFX , AlienTouch , AlienFusion , Alienware TactX and AlienAdrenaline , offers many customization options besides LED lights. It is possible to adjust the LED lights of the laptop with AlienFX. You can do the customization completely yourself, or you can choose one of the ready-made themes here.

AlienTouch is all about touchpad. While typing on the keyboard, you can make the necessary sensitivity settings so that the touchpad is not affected by the contact of your hand, and you can configure other settings related to the use of the touchpad. Alienware TactX is another section where you can assign macros to the A, B, C, D keys that flow right above the numeric keypad on the keyboard.
Finally, let’s talk about AlienAdrenaline and put the point in our review. It is possible to monitor the current performance of the laptop instantly by using AlienAdrenaline. You can see what is happening in the memory, processor, graphics and storage areas from here.
Alienware 17 is a successful model that appeals to gamers who want to get high gaming performance on the laptop platform. It is clear that we like it for its striking design, technical details and their reflection on performance. We think the biggest handicap is its high price to reach.
The price of the Alienware 17 given to us is in the form of prices starting from 3999 TL. However, it should be kept in mind that the price of the current model abroad is around 3400 dollars.
