Alienware 17 (Radeon R9 M290X)
Much like the Grammy Awards or the Oscars, gaming laptops provide a certain amount of spectacle. Gaming PCs need plenty of power, which generally necessitates thick, heavy design. Of course, buyers these days don't like thick, heavy design—so manufacturers tend to up the "wow" factor on these machines in other ways.
Enter the Alienware 17 (MSRP $2449), the mid-size offering from one of PC gaming's oldest names. If spectacle is what you want, look no further.
