If you're after a powerful gaming laptop with a 17-inch screen, the Alienware 17 R3 is one of the better picks out there. It's fast, runs quiet and not very hot, it bundles an amazing screen, a very good keyboard and even a large battery.

The Alienware 17 is one of the best gaming laptops money can buy. At this stage we just need to check out the relevant competition, the Asus G752, the Acer G9-791 and so on, to find out which will become our go-to recommendation for 2016 gamers with big budgets. Great performance is really a given with an Alienware box, but what really impresses is its smart use of large, quiet, low-rpm fans. It can work hard without showing it is doing so on the outside. The lingering concern is one around price, another Alienware staple. While the Alienware 17’s base specs appear at first competitive, by leaving out the expensive but likely popular 16GB RAM and SSD upgrades, most people’s desired configs are still going to end up rather pricey.

Alienware nous a toujours habitués à proposer des PC portables à la fois bien finis et très puissants, et ce n'est pas ce nouveau 17 pouces qui va déroger à la règle. La machine reste imposante, mais sa conception est excellente, tandis que la...
