Alienware x15 R2 Design Review
The Alienware x15 R2 is most likely the most visually spectacular gaming laptop we have ever seen. It’s smooth and extremely light, but the white exterior is astonishing, with a lovely little alien logo.
The inside is also remarkable, with speakers covering the top of the keyboards, significantly increasing the volume.
The keyboard not only feels and operates luxuriously but also looks magnificent as a result of the RGB lights built into each key and on the back of the laptop. Also, having air vents on the back and sides is a good idea as it gives you many more opportunities to push the heat out.
The Alienware x15 R2 weighs and measures the same as the previous model, measuring 14.16 x 10.97 x 0.62 inches and weighing 5.18 pounds.
Price and Availability
The Alienware x15 R2 is now available in the US, UK and Australia, with prices starting at $2,910 / £2,800 in the US and UK and AU$5,203 in Australia.
While this high-performance laptop is well worth its high price, it is hard to recommend the x15 R2 based on its price, particularly given the current cost-of-living crisis.
This machine chews and chews any PC game you put into it. There were no visual or performance difficulties with the titles, even after hours of play. Sound quality is also pretty good, both music and sound effects are crisp and clear, and the 15.6-inch FHD 1920×1080 display with G-Sync makes any visual pop with -color.
The keyboard is quite responsive, with a maximum response time of 3ms and a minimum response time of 1ms — according to the specifications.
It has N-key switching and anti-ghosting technology, 1.5mm key travel, and media keys accessible on the right side. Although a num lock pad would have been ideal, the installation of stereo speakers on either side of the keyboard was a wise choice.
Since this is a robust gaming laptop, the battery life is awesome. If you plan to take this beast outside, pack your charging cord and prepare a place to plug it in. Because the alternative is that the battery dies in three hours with a regular session and much less while playing a visually demanding game.
However, the battery charges quickly enough, taking about an hour to reach about 80%, so if you choose to go battery alone, you will not must wait long.
The Alienware x15 R2 is still a compact and stylish machine with just the perfect amount of RGB. The black and white coating is astonishing, as is the illuminated keyboard. Not to mention how much I appreciated the images on its 15.6-inch, 1440p display. However, despite the great gaming and productivity capabilities of the Alienware x15 R2, its competitors have often surpassed it in games.
However, let’s say you are searching for a trendy laptop and do not mind trading some gaming performance for some great design. In that case, the Alienware x15 R2 is a decent choice with plenty of ports and upgrade options to fit your needs.
