DELL Alienware 17 R4 I7-7700HQ Review

The 3-Minute DELL Alienware 17 R4 i7-7700HQ Review

Premium Portable Gaming Goodness

By Graeme Messina | February 27, 2018

The Specifics:

Features & Design: 5/5 ● Performance: 5/5 ● Value: 4.5/5 ● Battery: 4/5 

The Best:

Alienware are renowned the world over for creating monster gaming laptops and desktops, and the Alienware 17 R4 is just such a gaming system. It features an Intel Core i7 7th Generation CPU, 16GB of RAM, a hybrid SSD HDD solution, a 17.3” inch display, and an excellent NVidia GTX 1070 GPU for maximum gaming performance.

The Bugs:

This device is definitely portable when compared to a desktop setup, however it must be known that the actual weight of this device is just over 9lbs. If you factor in the heat dissipation from this laptop then you have a hot and heavy device that is not very comfortable on your lap, which is not great news considering that this is a laptop, after all.

Is it for you?

If you are a gamer on the go, then yes most definitely this is the laptop for you. The mix of hgh performance gaming parts, and the signature Alienware aesthetic pulls no punches, it was made to game.

Meet the DELL Alienware 17 R4 i7-7700HQ

You might be asking what else this beast of a laptop can do other than deliver blistering gaming performance and display it on its large screen 17.1” inch screen? The truth is that it doesn’t have to do much else, but luckily for us, there is more than meets the eye with this system. It features full RGB lighting customization, Tobii Eye tracking and presence detection, Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, Bluetooth 4.1, and Killer 1535 802.11ac 2x2 Wi-Fi.


What we like

We like the speed and performance of this gaming laptop. It offers a gaming experience that would shame most desktop PCs, and it does it with style and speed that will make most users’ heads spin.

The RAM, CPU and GPU are all rock solid, and the HDD choice is also a good fit for this performance gaming machine. Alienware is a Dell product, so warranty and repairs are all covered in typical Dell fashion, with most regions qualifying for next business day on site support. 

This is an area that not many people consider when they purchase a high end gaming device, but it is definitely worth thinking about when you consider the overall value of your Alienware laptop.

What we don’t like

There is no getting away from the fact that this laptop is heavier than a standard laptop, which is understandable, but not something you want to carry around with you all day. The heat is a slight negative as well, but again, it is expected because of the high end hardware that is powering the device. These shortcomings can easily be forgiven once you experience the powerful gaming performance that this unit offers.

Should you buy it?

If you are a gamer looking to buy an amazing system that offers portability, functionality and raw performance, then definitely yes. This is not your average laptop that has been designed to tackle spreadsheets and emails, although it will crush those tasks mercilessly and with ease. A system like this has been designed to run the latest and greatest triple A titles, and to instil jealousy in the hearts of all who look upon this impressive gaming unit. 

  • The Good :
    Amazing Gaming Performance, Good Looks, Great After Sales Service, Great CPU, GPU and RAM Configuration
  • The Bad :
    Pricey, Heavy, High Running Temperatures
Our score:
4.5 / 5
