Alienware x15 R2 Review Design
The Alienware x15 R2 is probably the most visually spectacular gaming laptop we’ve ever seen. It is sleek and unbelievably light, but the white exterior is stunning, with an adorable little alien logo.
The inside is also remarkable, with speakers lining the top of the keyboards, significantly increasing the volume.
The keyboard not only feels and operates luxuriously but also looks magnificent owing to the RGB lights built into each key and the laptop’s rear. In addition, having air vents on the back and sides is a good idea since it gives you many more opportunities to push heat out.
The Alienware x15 R2 weighs and measures the same as the previous model, measuring 14.16 x 10.97 x 0.62 inches and weighing 5.18 pounds.
Price and Availability
The Alienware x15 R2 is now available in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia, with prices starting at $2,910 / £2,800 in the United States and the United Kingdom and AU$5,203 in Australia.
While this high-performance laptop is well worth its high price, it’s tough to suggest the x15 R2 based on its price, especially given the current cost-of-living crisis.
This machine will chew and spit out any PC game you put at it. There were no visual or performance difficulties with titles, even after hours of play. The sound quality is likewise quite good, with both music and sound effects being crisp and clear, and the 15.6-inch FHD 1920×1080 display with G-Sync makes any visual pop in color.
The keyboard is quite responsive, with a maximum reaction time of 3ms and a minimum reaction time of 1ms — depending on the specifications.
It has N-key rollover and anti-ghosting technology, 1.5mm key travel, and accessible right-hand side media keys. Though a num lock pad would have been ideal, installing stereo speakers on either side of the keyboard was a wise choice.
Since this is a powerful gaming laptop, the battery life is appalling. If you intend to take this beast outside, pack your charging wire and prepare a place to plug it in. Because the alternative is that the battery would die in three hours with a regular session and much less while playing a visually demanding game.
However, the battery charges rapidly enough, taking about an hour to reach around 80%, so if you opt to go battery alone, you won’t have to wait long.
The Alienware x15 R2 is still a compact, elegant machine with just the perfect amount of RGB. The casing in black and white is stunning, as is the lighted keyboard. Not to mention how much I appreciated the images on its 15.6-inch, 1440p display. However, despite the Alienware x15 R2’s great gaming and productivity capabilities, its competitors frequently outperformed it in gaming.
However, suppose you’re looking for a fashionable laptop and don’t mind trading some gaming performance for some great design. In that case, the Alienware x15 R2 is a decent pick with many ports and upgradability choices to match your demands.
