Best Gaming Laptop 2013 Alienware 17

Best Gaming Laptop 2013 Alienware 17 - Alienware laptops have long been the gold standard for portable gaming, and the current-generation Alienware 17 shows why. In our tests, the laptop's high-end Nvidia GTX 780M graphics and 2.7-GHz Intel 4th Generaiton Core i7 CPU were powerful enough to play "BioShock Infinite " at 106 fps and "World of Warcraft" at 144 fps. Alienware's sci-fi-inspired design and customizable keyboard, grille and touchpad lights make the 17 as exciting to look at as it is to use.

2013 Alienware 17 Starting Price: $1,499


New look, new name, new specs. Alienware's got a brand-new swag. The company's latest best gaming laptop powerhouse is simply dubbed Alienware 17. Starting at $1,499 ($2,799 as configured), this laptop sports a drastic redesign that's sure to turn heads. Even better, this rig is outfitted with a fourth-generation Intel Haswell processor and Nvidia's latest and greatest GeForce GTX 780M GPU, promising unparalleled power. The end result is one sexy and screamingly fast beast.

Design Laptop 2013 Alienware 17

Alienware's new design falls somewhere in between "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" and "Tron." Our eyes were immediately drawn to the pair of colorful strips running diagonally across the center of the lid. After we finished gawking at the pretty lights, we took the whole lid in and took some time to admire the notebook's new two-toned aesthetic.
Instead of being swathed in a solid, soft-touch finish, the majority of the lid is made from gray, anodized aluminum, with a thick band of black, soft-touch plastic lining the top. Alienware also softened the angles and rounded out the edges throughout the design. For example, the company's trademark alien head sits along the midline of the top panel. The midline across the top of the lid looks more subtle than on previous models.
The bottom of the lid tapers and wraps around the chassis. The ornate speaker grills along the front edge of the notebook have also undergone a make-under, replaced by a pair of understated grills accented by a thin strip of plastic.

The Alienware sports Nvidia's most powerful laptop GPU yet -- the GeForce GTX 780M -- coupled with 4GB of dedicated video memory. That means the 17 can tear through the latest games as easily as LeBron James drives through the paint. During our "Tomb Raider" play-through, we saw very good average frame rates of 179, 61 and 40 fps on the Low, Normal and Ultimate settings, respectively.
As we played the game on Ultimate, we enjoyed watching the wind through Lara's hair almost as much as we enjoyed watching her dispatch crazed hostiles. The 17 never stuttered, even when there were 10 or more enemies on the field with Lara.
The notebook notched 5,903 on the 3DMark11 benchmark, smashing the 3,925 desktop-replacement average. However, it wasn't enough to outdo the MSI GT70, which scored 7,352 with the same GPU.
On the "World of Warcraft" benchmark, the 17 delivered a whopping 144 frames on Good at 1080p, slightly below the GT70's (1080p) 146 fps and the 173 fps desktop average. When we made the leap to maximum settings, the 17 delivered 103 fps at 1080p -- enough to top the 91 fps category average, but not the GT70's 105 fps.
When we pulled out the big guns on the "BioShock Infinite" benchmark, the 17 barely broke a sweat. At 1080p on low, the notebook registered 106 fps, demolishing the 60 fps desktop-replacement average as well as the GT70's 70 fps. On Ultimate, the 17 notched 35 fps, skirting by the 31 fps average. The GT70 rebounded, scoring a solid 44 fps.

Performance Laptop 2013 Alienware 17

The Alienware 17 packs quite a punch, thanks to its fourth-generation 2.7-GHz Intel Core i7-4800MQ processor with 16GB of RAM. The notebook easily streamed an episode of "Codename: Kids Next Door" from Netflix while running a system scan with 14 open tabs in Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer.
We saw a respectable score of 5,492 from the 17 on the PCMark 7 benchmark -- enough to best the 4,193 desktop-replacement average. However, the Alienware couldn't topple the MSI GT70 and its 2.4-GHz Intel Core i7-4700MQ CPU, which scored 6,025.
The 17's 256GB mSATA SSD and 750GB 7,200-rpm hard drive booted Windows 7 in 35 seconds, matching the category average. The GT70's dual 128GB SSD and 1TB 7,200-rpm hard drive blazed ahead, loading Windows 8 in 9 seconds.
During the File Transfer Test, the 17 duplicated 4.97GB of multimedia files in 28 seconds, for a transfer rate of 181.8 MBps. That's well above the 106.9 average, but short of the GT70's score of 462.7 MBps.
When we ran the OpenOffice Spreadsheet Macro Test, the 17 paired 20,000 names and addresses in 3 minutes and 42 seconds, faster than the 4:51 category average. The GT70 clocked in at 4:01.

Battery life Laptop 2013 Alienware 17

It's fair to say that the Alienware 17 won't spend much time away from an outlet, but at least its battery life is respectable. On the LAPTOP Battery Test (Web surfing via Wi-Fi), the 17 lasted 4 hours and 9 minutes, just 2 minutes shy of the 4:11 average and 10 minutes behind the MSI GT70's time of 4:19. However, the 17's predecessor, the M17x R4, lasted a longer 5:19.
