Expert Reviews (11) The following reviews are from your region. The average score is calculated from international review scores.

  • When it comes to playing games, Ive always preferred consoles to computers. Building (or buying) a custom gaming rig can be fun, but I need a dedicated laptop. And gaming laptops can definitely bring the power, but often with a size and battery-life trad...

  • Good: Attractive “gaming laptop” design doesn't require a matching bottle of Mountain Dew, Acceptable size, weight for a laptop with legitimate power and portability, I'd love a Precision Trackpad, but this one's serviceable, and keyboard is very, very comforta...

    Bad: The butt on this thing will probably look silly in a few years, but it's an acceptable compromise for now, Priciest SKU lands just shy of delivering true 1440p and VR performance, Rubberized palmrest traps a little too much heat during extended use, If yo...

    While I love the Alienware 13 R3's OLED multi-touch panel in some respects, I could just as easily see myself accepting a downgrade to the optional 1080p IPS non-touch panel. I might even drop further down to a GTX 1050Ti to get the price on this system c...

  • Alienware's latest offering is the smallest powerhouse laptop produced by the company. The 13 R3 is extremely compact for a VR-compatible system, but portability comes at a premium. Even so, the laptop has a lot to offer gamers and everyday users outside...

    Good: pressure-resistant and high quality chassis, palm rests are always cool, a lot of performance in a small system, useful Command Center, illuminated input devices, great OLED technology, decent battery runtimes, good connectivity, good fan control, switch...

    Bad: quite big and heavy for a 13-inch system, only 12 months base warranty (can be expanded), blinking of the Eye Tracking LED is annoying, very glossy QHD touch panel, no card reader

    Our test model of the larger Alienware 15 R3 had problems with the cooling performance (fluctuating and very high CPU temperatures, unnecessary fan pulsating while idling, high noise development under load), but the test sample of the more compact 13-inch...

  • Good: Fantastic gaming and general performance, Gorgeous OLED display, Quiet when idle, Great build quality, Competitively priced

    Bad: Middling battery life in this config, A little on the heavy side

    The new Alienware 13 marks a definitive, solid progression on all fronts, from build quality and industrial design aesthetic to its break-out performance. It's not without a couple of caveats, at least with the config we tested, of course. First, an SD ca...

    Good: The OLED touchscreen is stunning to watch, and the new Nvidia graphics card can handle VR headsets and the latest games with ease

    Bad: With only two full-size USB ports, hooking up VR gear plus a game controller is a hassle. The physical redesign isn't as extensive as it could be, and this OLED version is very expensive

    With an OLED touch display, VR-ready graphics, and a reasonably portable 13-inch body, the new Alienware 13 hits almost every item on my gaming laptop wish list...

    Good: Stunning OLED display, Superb all-around performance, Small and compact

    Bad: Keyboard gets warm under taxing worklaods, A bit heavy for its size

    The Alienware 13 is one sweet little machine. For its size, it's a bit heavy, but in exchange you get an extremely well-rounded laptop that excels in every way possible. From its slick design to its performance, battery life, and OLED display, it's...

    Good: Great-looking OLED screen, Comfy, sculpted keyboard, Chassis resists fingerprints and smudges, Good battery life for a compact gamer, Graphics-upgradable, thanks to optional Graphics Amplifier

    Bad: Big and heavy for a 13-inch laptop, Fans get noisy under load, Lacks per-key RGB backlighting

    The redesigned Alienware 13 delivers a stunning OLED-screen option, capable graphics, and external-GPU support. It's a powerful, solid-feeling PC in a rare screen size for a gamer. Heft and fan noise are our only quibbles. Read More…...

    Good: Excellent performance, Good battery life, Compact size and sleek design, Light for a gaming laptop, Premium build quality, Vibrant QHD touch screen, Plenty of ports, including USB-C with Thunderbolt 3

    Bad: 13-inch screen may not appeal to all gamers, Fans get loud when gaming

    Think you need a hulking, insanely expensive gaming desktop for VR? Think again. The Alienware 13 is a truly portable, fairly affordable, high-performance VR-capable laptop with a vibrant QHD touch screen...

    Good: Slim, sleek chassis, Gorgeous OLED display, Super-comfortable keyboard, Powerful graphics and overall performance, Lightning-fast transfer speeds, Great battery life,

    Bad: Runs a bit hot, A tad pricey
