Following a public unveiling at this year’s E3 in Los Angeles, Alienware showcased its latest range of elite gaming laptops at an even in Sydney.
Under the theme of “Game Victorious”, the new 14, 17 and 18 Alienware laptops were on display for the first time in Australia.
The latest games were playable to demonstrate the power of the hardware under the hood of the notebooks, with Ubisoft letting attendees play a pre-released version of its upcoming action adventure title, Splinter Cell: Blacklist.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
