Alienware M17x R3 Laptop Review (Core i7 2630QM / 256GB SSD)
If you want the ultimate performance desktop replacement, then this might just hit the spot. Just be aware of the weight and the short battery life; this is a desktop replacement, not a ‘portable, everyday’ machine. Carrying it to LAN parties, then back home should be the extent of its travels.

Alienware M17xR3 Review
The Alienware M17xR3 is an outrageous device — as powerful as you could ever wish for, with a superb battery life and great looks.

If you do, you will have a new love in your life called the Alienware M17xR3.
