Alienware ALW17-8751sLV 17.3 inch Gaming Laptop Review
Solid anodised aluminium shell reinforced by a magnesium-alloy frame protects both the internal components and offers durability overall and this laptop has a great unique cutting-edge design with angled side walls and front, giving it a rather premium gaming machine look. It weighs 9.2 pounds, measures 11.77 x 16.28 x 1.28 inches so it is neither lightweight nor super slim or compact so it is more like a desktop replacement 17 incher gaming PC but offers you all the power, performance, features and specs you need for the best of gaming. It has a backlit- AlienFX illuminated keyboard with game functions and has an 8-cell lithium ion (86 wHr) battery to game longer as well as a wide range of connectivity options including Slot-Loading 8x SuperMulti Drive (DVDR/RW), Broadcom 4352 802.11 ac 2x2 wireless, Bluetooth 4.0, Ethernet port with RJ-45, 4 x USB 3.0 ports, 9-in-1 Media Card Reader, an HDMI port, audio jacks and Security lock slot.

Conclusion: Alienware 17 ALW17-8752sLV has the latest technology of everything for way better than average- high end performance and speed. We love the large 17 inch Full HD screen and amazing surround sound, how good the keyboard looks and would feel, how smoothly the games would run with the power of NVIDIA GPU, snappy performance of SSD and large storage and memory, its 8-cell battery and more. There is not much wrong with this computer except for the not so cheap price tag. You will find the power cord, AC Adapter, 8-cell li-on battery and a 12 month In-Home warranty by Dell (including In-Home service following a remote diagnosis + 24/7 great customer support) inside the pack plus the trial version of Microsoft Office so although it is a computer designed mainly with advanced gamers in mind, it will handle any of the daily work or school related tasks super smoothly and efficiently. This is a great computer to consider if you want something super solid with quality components, that does the job and looks the part with its beautiful design and sure is worth every cent.
