Gaming-Focused: Alienware M17x R4

You’ll be hard-pressed to find a gaming laptop with more power than the Alienware M17x R4, which is loaded with one of the most powerful Ivy Bridge processors available.

On top of the third-generation Intel Core i7-3720QM processor, the M17x R4 also packs an Nvidia GeForce GTX 880M discrete graphics card for smooth gaming performance, RAM upgradable to 32GB, and hard-drive space starting at 500GB.

Even with all that power, the battery lives on: In PCWorld Labs tests, it lasted close to 5.5 hours.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


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.
