Final Thoughts

When all the testing was done and the results were in, the Alienware m15x is one of the best gaming notebooks to ever hit the market. It has loads of performance for general productivity tasks and when game time comes around it has the muscle for today's hottest video games.

The only real downside to the m15x is the sound system, which lacks volume. You could consider the price to be a downside as well, but you don't wander into a Ferrari dealership and complain that the high-end rides inside are too expensive and you can't really complain that one of the fastest 15-inch notebooks on the planet is too expensive either. As the old adage goes, you can have fast and you can have cheap, but you can't have both in one machine.

If you want a gaming notebook that can be used for any task from gaming to media center duties and beyond, the Alienware m15x is worth a hard look. Simply put, this is the best performing 15-inch notebook I have ever laid my hands on.
