I just got my m11x r2 today and I thought I'd do a brief review since its a popular notebook and many people have considered it at one point.

If anyone has any questions about it, just ask me!

Here is the brief review.

Aesthetics: 9/10
The notebook looks really good and sleek. The LED-backlit keyboard along with the Alienware logo help it to stand out among other notebooks.

Portability: 7/10
Its small (although fat) so you should be able to stuff it in most bags. However, its really heavy for its size. But that's not saying much since its so small. It weighs about 4 pounds.

Performance: 9/10
It does what its suppose to; it games, although not at the greatest frame-rates. But its good enough for a notebook. The 335m is enough for such a small screen and resolution.

Screen: 7/10
Really glossy. I imagine you would have a hard time working with this notebook in a sunny area. Also, its clear that they could have made this screen a lot larger. Bezels waste an inch-wide border around the display.

Keyboard: 7/10
Its really, really compact. I have really small hands and even then, its troublesome for me, ESPECIALLY when gaming. If you play RTS competitively, you will have to get an external keyboard. Then again, I'm used to quality, mechanical keyboards.

Touchpad: 8/10
Does as it should but its not for gaming at all. You WILL need an external mouse.

I have yet to determine the battery life of this thing.
