Alienware 13 R3 Review


CPU Intel Core i7-6700HQ 2,6 Hz
GPU Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6 Gb
DISPLAY 13,3' QHD (2560 x 1440)
WEIGHT 2.6 kg


The design of Alienware always positions its laptops separately from all other gaming laptops with a lot of bright accents, backlighting and high quality materials. This year, however, the main difference is the forward-shifted hinge design, reminiscent of Dell Adamo.

To make the case 21% thinner (22 mm), Alienware moves the radiators, usually located under the keyboard, under the bulge, which protrudes a few inches behind the screen. Alienware also cleverly uses thickening for full-size ports, including HDMI, Ethernet and the proprietary Alienware Graphics Amp connector.

However, the increased dimensions of the 10.6-inch laptop and its square shape make it unacceptable for most 13-inch laptop bags. We had to use a backpack designed for a 15-inch laptop, it fits Alienware 13. Moreover, the laptop weighs 2.6 kilograms, which is almost a pound more than most 15-inch laptops.
