Alienware M18x - Strong and Powerful !!

Alienware has updated its high-end, 18-inch M18x gaming laptop with some new components, and the result is an incredibly powerful machine. It's been dubbed the Alienware M18x for some time now, but this latest version adds 2nd Generation Intel's Core i7 processor for even more power.

Oddly, the 18-inch wide-screen, which is usually a sight to behold on a gaming laptop, is one of the M18x's weaker points. It weighs 5.41kg and measures Front: 53.00mm (2.09 inches), Rear: 54.20mm (2.13 inches), Depth: 322.00 mm (12.68 inches), Width: 436.00 mm (17.17 inches). So it's really far too big and heavy to move on a frequent basis, except possibly from room to room.

Despite the glossy display, our gaming experience wasn't ruined by annoying reflections, because the M18x's screen is very bright indeed. The M18x will crush your spine with its monumental chassis, and then make your brains dribble out of your nose with its performance.

Even though Alienware found the biggest battery (97Whr) available for the M18x, it couldn't keep up with its battery-guzzling parts, namely the processor and SLI graphics cards. Alienware M18x is the complete package, as its looks can stand in the spotlight with its parts.

Samsung Series 300 Laptop (NP300E5Z-A0HIN) Review

Laptop: We all know Samsung is not a big Laptop Brand but they’re known for HDD & DVD Writer Manufacturer for Laptops. This model is of Samsung SERIES 300, which is a very stylish & portable series.

Decision & Pricing: First I was leaning towards Dell Vostro 1450 (i5 2nd Gen, 2 Gb RAM) which was for 35K, then Asus Lappy with i7 (DOS & 2GB Graphics), then I decided to go with Samsung NP300E5Z-A0HIN because it is DOS based which saves some money. It is available for 32K INR + Samsung Laptop Bag.

Intel® Core™ i5 Processor 2450M (2.50 GHz, 3 MB L3 Cache)
4GB 1333mhz Ram X 1
15.6" HD LED Display (1366 x 768), Anti-Reflective
Intel® HD Graphics 3000
750GB S-ATA II Hard Drive (5400RPM)
Chick let Keyboard

Good Performance
Super Sexy & Sleek Design
Bright Display & Good Viewing Angles
Chicklet Keyboard

No USB 3.0
Webcam Quality is average

Conclusion: I'm very much satisfied with the laptop. I found everything in it i was looking for. No other Laptops in same price range beats it. Every penny spent is worth it.
