Reviews for the Alienware m18 R1, RTX 4090

80% Alienware M18 R1 Review – Gigantic gaming goliath got game
Source: Hitech Century English EN→zh-CN
Massive and powerful in equal measure, the Alienware M18 R1 is a behemoth of a gaming laptop. It does not come cheap, is immensely heavy and runs hot but the sheer power and performance it has to offer makes it ideal for gamers who demand top tier gaming performance

80% Alienware M18 Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English EN→zh-CN
Thanks to Alienware’s wide range of options, you can pick up an M18 for well under £2000/$2000, but let’s assume you are after a high-end model with an RTX 4080 or better GPU, then you will be spending around £3000/$3000 or more. For that sort of money, you can get the 17-inch Medion Erazer Beast X40, Razer’s Blade 18 or the Asus ROG Strix Scar 18. The Medion is worth consideration because it represents excellent value and comes with a mechanical keyboard as standard. If a super-fast display is what you are after, don’t forget the Gigabyte Aorus 17H, which pairs an RTX 4080 GPU with a 360Hz display. For just over £2000/$2000, it’s an eSports laptop par excellence. None of those machines are as physically imposing and visually extreme as the new Alienware M18. Every time I took it down from the shelf and opened it up, the sheer over-the-top size and styling brought a cheese-eating grin to my face, and that’s what I want when spending this sort of money on a gaming laptop.

80% Alienware m18 R1 (2023) review: A staggeringly powerful 18in gaming laptop, and now a bit cheaper on Black Friday, too
Source: Expert Reviews English EN→zh-CN
Considering the very high price, the m18 should have a much better display. For just shy of £3,500, a rather dull 165Hz QHD+ panel, frankly, takes the proverbial. Granted, the 480Hz screen is only £100 more, but the idea of a 1,920 x 1,080 matrix stretched across 18 inches – that’s still only 122dpi – fails to excite any more than 165Hz at QHD+. The keyboard is a bit mundane too, though it works well enough. However, the m18 is so breathtakingly powerful I’m prepared to give it a pass on the workaday display and keyboard. At the end of the day, no other gaming laptop can so effortlessly run even the most demanding titles with all the graphic bells and whistles turned on, and that is primarily what I want for my money. Hook this m18 up to a good gaming monitor, like the Asus ROG Swift PG27AQDM, and you will have a superb gaming rig and a good laptop.
