Testrapporten voor de Alienware M14x
Premiere. The M14x is Alienwares first 14 inch gaming laptop. A quad-core CPU and GeForce GT 555M make the notebook unique, as this kind of hardware is usually only found in larger models, such as the Schenker XMG A501 or the Dell XPS 17. The M14x - another revolutionary model?

There’s also a cohesiveness of design that you simply don’t find from other gaming laptops. Geeks are quick to pile on Alienware, accusing them as being overpriced Dells. It’s true they are often a bit more expensive than laptops with similar hardware from other companies, but those laptops simply aren’t as well designed. Adequate? Sure. As nice as Alienware? You’ve got to be kidding. Only ASUS is close. I can see why the M15x was replaced with this laptop. That outgoing model was simply too large to carry on a daily basis, which meant there was little practical destinction between it and the M17x. The story is now different. The Alienware M14x offers a combination of affordability, portability and power that's not available elsewhere.

The Alienware M14x R3 is the middle child of the Alienware family. Its weight makes it better suited to a life as a desktop replacement, but if you're looking to go that route you might as well splurge for the Editors' Choice Alienware M17x (Sandy Bridge) ($2,254 direct, 4.5 stars), which provides better heat dissipation and has a bigger screen. Meanwhile, if you're looking to game on the road, you're better off leaning toward the Editors' Choice Alienware M11xr3. But if you can do without the expensive extras, like Killer Wireless-N Wi-Fi and Wireless HD, the Asus N55SF-A1 (which costs $753 less) and Editors' Choice Apple MacBook Pro (which costs $203 less) might be better options for a pure-performance gaming machine.

The Alienware M14x is indeed "the most powerful 14-inch laptop in the universe" but that doesn't mean much when you can get a much better 15-inch or 17-inch gaming laptop for the same price (and roughly the same weight).

Before Alienware waded onto the scene, many believed gaming notebooks needed to be big, overweight bricks that were anything but portable. To this day most high performance notebooks come with oversized screens and laughable battery life so at face value Alienware’s small form factor gambit was ambitious to say the least.

The M14x that we received will set you back a whopping Rs.1,19,000, which is nearly the same as the Asus G74SX. You may argue that the high price is for the small form factor and portability, but the fact is that it’s just too heavy to be truly portable, you certainly won’t be lugging this around. If this was priced closer to 60K (wishful thinking, I know!), we would recommend this in a heartbeat. But at its current standing, it just makes more sense to get the Asus G74SX. There’s no denying the fact that Dell has built a really good notebook, the finish and features are really hard to find with the competition. However, the high price and the fact that there’s no USB 3.0 support and the noisy fan is what stops it from being truly a great gaming notebook.

It’s solid, it’s powerful, but the M14x stumbles when it comes to the graphics card which in our view makes or breaks a gaming notebook. We appreciate that the price tag is going to be high given the build quality and SSD, but ultimately there are alternative gaming notebooks that cost the same or less with vastly better graphics cards.

Thankfully, it's hard to notice if you turn the sound up, as the built-in speakers are surprisingly powerful. The back of the laptop gets warm around the air vents, but not to a worrying degree. The smaller 14-inch screen is still fine for gaming, thanks to its sharp 1600 x 900 resolution. It's bright enough to work on comfortably for extended periods without straining your eyes, which is great news for anyone who likes all-night gaming sessions.

Considering the small size of the Alienware M14x, it was really impressive to see it perform so well in all the benchmarks. Performance in games was above average and considering that the whole package weighs less than 6 pounds, is even more impressive. However, because of the cooling issue and the fact that upgrades add up quickly on that final bill, I feel that there are some good alternatives to it.

If you have cash to burn and need a high-performance gaming portable, these new Alienwares won't disappoint. We prefer the M14x as it offers greater portability and value for money.

There's no denying that Alienware's 14.1in laptop is a beautiful piece of tech. It looks great, with its sleek 'stealth-bomber' lines, red or black matte finish and individually controllable light zones. It feels just as good, with solid build, soft-touch plastics and a superb keyboard and touchpad. There's also plenty of connectivity, decent battery life and all the specifications you could wish for. However, it's let down by arguably its key component; its graphics card. It's plenty fast enough to play all games but just not when looking their best, and for a gaming oriented machine that's crucial. Combined with its noisiness under load and premium price this prevents the M14x from receiving our coveted recommendation despite its many strengths.

When I say the Alienware M14x is too much by half, I'm not talking about the pricetag. Truth be told the price is actually remarkably reasonable given the excellent build quality, bling, and extra features. I'm talking about the configuration and cooling design, and these are things that significantly limit what you can do with the M14x.

Looking first to build quality the M14x continues the trend set by the M11x-M18x with a solid body and high quality, branded internal components. The slightly rubberised finish is exceptional and there is minimal flex to the keyboard which has good backlighting. From a design perspective the M14x is full of positives.

As we noted early on, gamer-class notebooks seem to get a lot of attention around here and elsewhere. And for good reason, top-shelf notebooks like Alienware's M14x are a pleasure to use for a number of obvious reasons. With the M14x you get absolutely impeccable build quality and great looks that will even turn heads of non-gamers or enthusiasts.

We can only agree that the Alienware M14x is the most powerful 14-inch gaming laptop in the world, although this comes at the cost of it being a pound heavier than the average 14-inch machine. The quad-core Sandy Bridge Intel CPU, which shows up as eight cores in the operating system thanks to Intel’s Hyperthreading feature, makes everything extremely snappy and responsive, although ours is the slowest alternative.

Typically, the difference between a 14-inch laptop and a 15-inch one is very slight, although we generally prefer the smaller of these two options for the sake of portability. It's tough to find mobile PC gaming in a package that's neither too big nor too small. The Alienware M14x comes very close, with plenty of component options and a size that's hefty, but not backbreaking.

With the M14x, Alienware has once again assembled a battalion's worth of hardware inside a stylish chassis. While you can get the same specs in a larger 17-inch notebook such as the Dell XPS 17, it's pretty fantastic that you can enjoy quad-core power and very high frame rates on the go. At $2,198, the M14x isn't cheap by any means, but it's a nice compromise for those who want a gaming rig more powerful than the M11x but more portable than the M17x. We don't like that the deck gets as hot as it does when gaming--despite the overactive fan--but strong graphics plus WirelessHD make the M14x a very impressive machine.

CommentaarNVIDIA GeForce GT 555M: Opvolger van de GeForce GT 445M en gebaseerd op dezelfde GF106-chip met iets hogere kloksnelheden en ondersteuning voor DDR3 op 900 MHz. Deze grafische kaarten zouden alle huidige spellen moeten kunnen draaien, maar de meeste spellen zullen alleen met gemiddelde of lage detail instellingen en lage resoluties goed werken. Oudere of minder veeleisende spellen kunnen nog wel met goede grafische instellingen gespeeld worden.
