Pros: slim, lightweight design; very bright screen with vivid colors; excellent sound quality; both general and gaming performance very valid.
PRO: slim, lightweight design; very bright screen with vivid colors; excellent sound quality; both general and gaming performance very valid.
AGAINST: the base warms during the games; the external graphics greatly increases the price, depending on the GPU; autonomy substandard.
VERDICT: The Alienware 13 R2 will ensure excellent performance and a screen excellent, but limited autonomy.
“Narrow” the notebook is not always negative. Take for example the Alienware 13 R2 (with prices starting at € 1,249, € 1,907 as configured). It is a product with 13-inch-looking identical to that of its bigger brothers, with the same keyboard backlighting customizable.
It does not have the same technical specifications dell’Alienware 17, but the 13 we tried R2 with Core i7 CPU and Nvidia GPU Skylake is still powerful. See it as an option aggressive affordable, targeted at gamers who want a truly portable gaming platform, although limited autonomy will not make the happiness of many.
