  • Bulky Design

Bottom Line

The Alienware 15, though bulky, features great gaming performance with an amazing screen, but the audio speakers are weak and the hard drive is slow for a gaming powerhouse

The Alienware 15 AW15R2-6161SLV  is a bestselling 2015 15.6-inch laptop that received positive reviews for its solid feel, gamer-oriented design, high quality screen, excellent gaming performance, and a reasonable price tag. However, it is quite thick and heavy, its speakers are weak on bass, and it comes with a slower 5400 rpm hard drive as opposed to the 7200 rpm on most competitors. If you don’t want to go all out on a premium gaming laptop, the AW15R2-6161SLV  features high-end hardware and an elite design which you will usually only see on more expensive Alienware laptops.

    We already checked the Alienware 15 twice. In this review update, the gaming notebook gets a fresh Skylake processor and the fast Nvidia GTX 980M. Can Alienware keep the components of the 15-inch device cool?
