Video: Alienware M14X review


One of the most customisable areas is the choice of hard drives with traditional drives, SSDs and hybrid combinations available. Prices start at £999 including VAT but this requires you to drop below the standard included specifications. See also: the full Alienware M14x review.

Our Alienware M14x came powered by an Intel Ivy Bridge Core i7-3720QM processor clocked at 2.6GHz– rising to 3.6GHz when in Turbo mode. This was backed up by 8GB of DDR3 1600MHz RAM. You can opt for a slightly faster Core i7-3820QM and up to 16GB of RAM.

Adding to the performance of this machine was a combination of a 64GB mSATA SSD dedicated to the Windows Home Premium OS and a 500GB hard drive for traditional storage purposes.

In our WorldBench 6 real-world benchmark test the Alienware M14x scored a fantastic score of 168 – the highest score we've ever seen from any notebook computer.

For comparison the Apple MacBook Pro 15in (Late 2011) scored 133 and the Samsung Series 7 Chronos got 138 points.

This Ivy Bridge chip has integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics – but the Alienware M14X has a dedicated nVidia GeForce GT650M graphics processor. As standard this has 1GB of GDDR5 memory but you can pay an additional £50 to double this to 2GB
