  • Dave2D review of the Alienware M15, the best gaming laptop from Dell for thin and light performance.
    Alienware M15 -
    The M15 is 38% lighter and 17% thinner than the Alienware 15. Loaded with the GTX 1070 MaxQ and i7-8750H, it still brings excellent performance for modern games.

    What do you think of their first thin and light gaming laptop? Would you get it? The M15 is 38% lighter than the regular Alienware 15 (and has much better thermals than I expected for a thin and light).

    Alienware gives you one the best perfomance for i7 8750h out of the box , some users dont care about the cpu hitting 100c, however if you dont like these thermals you are free to undervolt and decrease these temps significantly.Personally i like the option of getting something more powerfull and having the option of undervolting it myself for my own needs. I dont say that they couldnt do better with the thermals but even with these temps there are solutions to prevent that kind of situations, All in all i believe that thermal issues can be fixed and the fact that it has an aluminium body in such price with that perfomance and weight makes me actually buy that laptop and maybe undervolt it.

      Ah perfect Laptop. The first one i received was totally fucked up as it looked like a refurished. The Second laptop that they sent was a perefct one. It reached 95 deg and after using it like few hours it reached 100 deg because of the laptop table surface temperature. I undervolted using throttlestop upto -0.100v and ideal temps were like 35 to 45 and while playing games it reached 80. Dota 2 - > 65 to 75 . Farcry Primal 75-82. Fortnite 75 - 80. The heat problem is only due to overclocked CPU where other laptops are undervolted. I prefer Alienware though.

      dannyg3677 I have my own desktop at home so for me it was about getting something I could use for my computer science degree, it could last long and was built well, it was $1,187 retail and I think for having the 1060 and a 8750h isn’t great price to performance but I did get the bigger battery and since I got it I had to use the 512 NVME M.2 SSD if I didn’t have a dedicated machine I’d get the 2060 version but all things considered this was a great purchase for me

    • dannyg3677
      dannyg3677 Před 23 dny

      @Alex Atwood I see! Well the config I am probably going to get is the i7 with the RTX 2060. Also I am planning to under volt the system so that I get better thermals. I don't mind the 16gb RAM all I am doing is light gaming and CHclip and web browsing. So I don't think I'll need more than that. I just live the design so much. If not I would have gone for the m15 R1 as well. The sale on it is incredible

    • Alex Atwood
      Alex Atwood Před 23 dny +1

      I had the m15 2019 for 2 weeks and sent it back for the 2018 version due to the 2019 running hot also I got the 2018 with a 90WHR battery and it lasted on average around 6 hours which is great also the ram is soldered on in the 2019 version and it does physically look better but on the 2018 is on sale and the way I had configured was 600 bucks off

    My guess for the thermal problems on their bigger laptops is pricing, they spend more money packing it with hardware and when it comes to their cooling and fans, they just slap it in there and call it a day, but with the thin version, they put the basic necessities and had money to spend, so they put it on their cooling technology

    • MarineReacts
      MarineReacts Před měsícem

      I've heard so many people talk about cooling issues but on my 17 r4 it never gets hot. Must be a luck of the draw type thing.

    I am confused. All other sites say that Alienware's bulkier laptops had no thermal issues but this thinner M15 has thermal throttling, but this video says different story. I am looking to buy one RTX version of M15. Can someone testify the thermal performance of this machine?

    Your video’s are great, nice to watch and great video editing.
    But this video review was very superficial and this laptop is horrible for its price. I lost my confidence in your reviewing ability as you made this laptop seem amazing.
    To summarise, it’s an extremely warm laptop, that’s very noisy, with its fans that never turning off yet it’s larger and heavier than its contenders, and it does almost everything then the contenders for an unjustified premium price. Horrible review bro, I noticed this video review was literally Dells web page, it almost feels like they paid you to say this. I had to return this laptop.
    Anyhow, still like your other videos, just don’t think I’ll use you opinion to make a decision as this was a very superficial review.
    Giving this feedback hoping you’ll do better on your other videos, as I didn’t appreciate this laptop and based getting it partly on your review.

    Its On Amazon too: search for Advancing Gene Smart Laptop Cooler Cooling Pad
    I wish to see a review about this product, Fyi.. Its really costly in terms of Cooling pad around 160$ , That's why we need a test from you to know if Alienware's Users needs to buy this or not worth it.
    Thanks in advance.

    4:35 it looks like the bottom bezel isn't flush . I've been contemplating on getting this for a while now, but that seems to be the kicker for me >_< .
    It's either this, or the Zephyrus S . Which would you recommend??

    • Nathaniel's Phone

      @Christopher McDaniel
      I think the new m15 has ONE spot soldered on. So if you choose 16GB, one of the 8GB is soldered on. So if you replace the 8 with 16GB you'll have a total of 24GB.

    • Christopher McDaniel
      Christopher McDaniel Před 2 měsíci +1

      Get this dude. The new m15 is only 16gb soldered there is no 32 gb and basically no upgrade options besides going from 2060 to 2070 Max q. The zephyrus is nice but if you wanna upgrade anything you have to open it up and flip the keyboard. It also has weird keyboard ergonomics but other than that it's solid. I'd still suggest this Alienware over the new one and the zephyrus s.

    • Reki
      Reki Před 3 měsíci +1

      @Nathaniel's Phone If that were the case, then I would definitely buy this. As of now, people are saying that it is soldered ram from a certain tweet. Hopefully more information gets released and a disassembly to confirm. If it is full soldered . . . that is a big turn off. I am concerned about the RAM failing after about 5 years. If that does happen, that'll render the computer useless.

    • Nathaniel's Phone
      Nathaniel's Phone Před 3 měsíci

      @Reki It may only be that one soldered with an empty space tho. So if you buy 16gb soldered, you can still add 16gb for 32gb

    • Reki
      Reki Před 3 měsíci

      @Nathaniel's Phone Yeah. Looks really nice but expensive by base model being almost 2k and has soldered ram..

The ONLY time weight matters is when you transport the laptop and most of a time you are sitting down anyways so these guys are complaining way too much.
