The Verge - At $1,499 kitted out with the 1080p screen and Nvidia GeForce GTX 765M graphics that you'll definitely want, the Alienware isn't an inexpensive or a particularly stylish laptop. We've seen thinner machines that can vaguely play PC games for under $800. It's not particularly portable either, with bulk and battery life that might make you think twice about taking it to your local cafe. But if you're the kind of person who would take it there — onlookers be damned — then you'll be getting a finely crafted gaming experience. The Alienware 14 is as solid and comfortable a gaming laptop (wristrests aside) as I've ever tried, and fits more power than a next-gen game console and as much as many beefier gaming laptops into its frame.
