The Alienware AW17R4-7345SLV-PUS is a bestselling gaming laptop that has been praised for its Kaby Lake i7 processor, GTX 1070 GPU, large 17.3-inch Full-HD display and for its great port placement. However, for the price you do not get an SSD and you will either have to make do with the 1TB mechanical HDD or purchase an M.2 SSD separately. While the Alienware’s bulky size helps with cooling, Alienware have not utilized the space to fit a larger battery and this results in fairly poor battery life. Even so, you should get between 3 and 4 hours off of a single charge when not gaming or streaming videos.
