Alienware M17x-R4 reviewed - Battery life and power consumption

Written by Sanjin Rados

Review: Performance to remember

Battery life is not amazing when it comes to gaming, but for mundane tasks such as browsing and office work, the Alienware can hit up to from three to four hours, depending on power options and CPU load. However, gaming kills the battery fast. Far Cry 3 with maxed out settings can devour it in about an hour. The battery checker is a nice touch, since it can tell you how much battery is left even if the notebook is off.

Power consumption in games can almost hit 200W. Although it sounds like a lot for any laptop, bear in mind that we are talking about desktop-like performance. However, anyone willing to drop a few thousand on a gaming laptop is probably not too concerned by the electric bill.
