I want someone to prove that alienware PC's/Laptops are worth the money.


I would like tyo thank my opponent for allowing me to debate him on this very personal metter to me so.So let me get started. As you have provided no guidelines i will open this debate in the first round.

Alienware laptops are worth the money because of a few basic things people want in a computer.

reason 1. memory
The memory of an alienware laptop is 32 gigaabytes of internal memory compared to that of an acer which has 4 gigabytes of internal memory.

reason 2.
alienware laptops have better graphics than another computer.

this is proven by processor and also graphics components. Alienware uses
Dual 2GB *
NVIDIA GTX 675M GPUs for a combined 200W of discrete graphics powerStunning 18.4" Full HD 1920x1080 WLED LCD display (standard)
And the acer uses
Intel HD Graphics with Shared Memory which is terrible.

reason 3.
to finally make sure that i have won this debate i will prove that the Alienware has better prossecing power than another laptop.
the alienware laptop uses
Extreme 2nd Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processors while the acer laptop uses Intel celeron N2830 Dual-core 2.16 GHz. this prossecor is just the first gen model and not the second as the Alienware is. all of my evidence came from the two sources listed above.

i conclude this round by thanking my opponent again for this argument and i hope this is a good debate.

and its 2.4-GHz Intel Core i7-4700MQ CPU with 16GB of RAM managed a slightly lower 5,576.

Thanks to its 256GB SSD"and the fact that it was booting Windows 8"the Blade 14 was ready to go in just 7 seconds. The Alienware 14, which has a 750GB 7,200-rpm hard drive and a 256GB mSATA SSD, took 30 seconds to boot Windows 7.

When duplicating 4.97GB of multimedia files on the File Transfer Test, the Alienware 14 had a transfer rate of 221.3MBps, far outpacing the Blade 14"s 141.4MBps.

We ran the OpenOffice Spreadsheet Macro test, which tasked the notebooks with pairing 20,000 names to their corresponding addresses. The Alienware 14 finished in 4 minutes and 5 seconds. The Blade 14 was hot on its heels with a time of 4:15.

Winner: Draw. At the end of our testing, the Alienware 14 and Blade 14 were left in a dead heat, each winning two categories in our performance testing.

Round 7: Graphics
benchmark 3dmark11

In terms of graphics, the Razer Blade 14 and the Alienware 14 are virtually identical, outfitted with Nvidia GeForce GTX 765M GPU with 2GB of VRAM. When we ran the 3DMark11 benchmark, the Alienware 14 barely edged out the Blade 14, posting 4,087 and 4,060 respectively.

During the "BioShock Infinite" test, the Blade 14 achieved 88 fps at 1600 x 900 on Low while the Alienware 14 delivered 91 fps at 900p. At the game"s highest settings, the Blade 14"s frame rate dropped to 30 fps while the Alienware 14 hit 38 frames.

The Alienware 14 also ran the "Bioshock Infinite" benchmark at 1920 x 1080. The notebook achieved 67 fps on low, which fell to 28 fps at the highest setting. That"s just a couple of frames shy of our 30 fps playability threshold.

Winner: Alienware 14. Despite having the same GPU, the Alienware 14 was able to outperform the Razer Blade 14 on the same games.

However, when it comes to typing experience, we prefer the Razer Blade 14. The island-style keys provided firmer feedback and deeper travel than the Alienware 14. Thanks to its slimmer profile, the Blade 14"s keyboard is closer to the desk, making for a more comfortable experience. The Alienware 14"s thick deck elevated our wrist into a slightly uncomfortable typing position. And while you can"t change the backlighting color, the Blade 14 is still a great looking keyboard, especially with its distinctive font.

Winner: Razer Blade 14. Alienware has the flash, but Razer has the substance when it comes to the keyboard. A smaller deck, stronger feedback and deeper travel makes typing and gaming on the Razer Blade 14 a smoother, more comfortable experience.

Round 5: Heat
Some like it hot, but not when it comes to notebooks. After 15 minutes of gaming, the Blade 14"s touchpad measured 98 degrees Fahrenheit, several degrees above our 95 degree comfort threshold. The space between the G and H keys and the notebook"s undercarriage got downright toasty, reaching 113 and 125 degrees, respectively.

The Alienware 14"s touchpad was the coolest part on the notebook at 88 degrees. The space between the G and H keys hit 101 degrees while the bottom of the notebook reached 120 degrees. However the rear vent blew a scorching 154 degrees. Even worse are the Alienware 14"s fans, which sound like a small turbine when gaming. The Blade 14"s fans were set to a whisper, allowing for better immersion when gaming.

Winner: Razer Blade 14. Although both notebooks can be hazardous to your lap"s health, the Blade 14 is the cooler of the two and has a quieter fan when gaming.

Round 6: Performance
benchmark pcmark7

The Blade 14 is proof that a thin frame doesn"t equate to frail performance. Outfitted with a 2.2-GHz Intel Core i7-4702HQ CPU with 8GB of RAM, this gaming notebook notched an impressive 5,873 on the PCMark 7 benchmark. The Alienware 14 and

e a the palm rest and keyboard deck sport a soft-touch finish. In addition to the LED strips, there"s also Alienware"s super-customizable backlit keyboard. The touchpad is also backlit, adding to an already prodigious light show.

Winner: Alienware 14. We"re huge fans of the lightweight portability and sleek looks of the Razer Blade 14, but the Alienware 14 and its gorgeous redesign take this round. Alienware"s new look really brings home that extraterrestrial vibe, while the additional lights make sure that you"ll be the center of attention during a LAN party.

Round 2: Display

The Alienware 14 has two display options: 1366 x 768 and 1920 x 1080. The Razer Blade 14, by comparison, only comes with a 1600 x 900 screen. During our time with the Alienware 14"s 1080p anti-glare panel, we enjoyed wide viewing angles and with deep rich colors. However, the Blade 14 didn"t quite measure up.

When we viewed an image of a majestic mountain scene on both notebooks, it was no contest. The Alienware 14 delivered lush emerald greens and lovely cerulean skies. The same scene on the Blade 14 looked dull by comparison. The Alienware 14 also had the sharper display, allowing us to see nearly every blade of grass.

display2 compare gaming laptop

The Alienware 14"s dominance continued in a side-by-side comparison of "BioShock Infinite." While both notebooks showed off deep reds, greens and blues, the colors were more vibrant on the Alienware 14"s screen. We also saw crisper particle effects on the Alienware 14 including fireworks and gunfire.

However, the Alienware 14"s panel isn"t as bright as we would like. When we measured the brightness, the notebook delivered a measly 161 lux,compared to the 323 lux on the Blade 14.

Winner: Alienware 14. The Blade 14 shines brighter, but the Alienware 14"s 1080p display does an excellent job of delivering more eye-catching color and sharper details.

Gamers, lets get ready to rumble! In one corner we have the Razer Blade 14. One of the world"s thinnest gaming notebooks, the Blade 14 (starting price $1,799, $1,999 as reviewed) crams a powerful Intel Core i7 processor and Nvidia graphics with into a lithe frame with over 8 hours of battery life.

In the other corner, we have the Alienware 14 (starting at $1,099, $2,029 as reviewed). Sporting a revamped look, this laptop features a 1080p display, 4th generation Intel Core i7 graphics and Nvidia graphics. There"s also the deep backlighting customization that has become synonymous with the brand.

Though evenly matched, each portable rig has unique strengths and weaknesses that set them apart. To find out which laptop reigns supreme, we pitted these 14-inch titans against each other in a ten round slugfest more epic than a Sephiroth boss battle. Read on to discover which notebook emerged victorious.

Round 1: Design
design razer compare gaming laptop

The Razer Blade 14 doesn"t deviate far from the design of its big brother, the Razer Blade Pro. And that"s not a bad thing. It"s hard to find fault with a slick black aluminum chassis that weighs a bag-friendly 4.2 pounds and measures 13.6 x 9.3 x 0.66 inches. Razer"s trademark three-headed green snake logo glows menacingly on the lid. The interior of the notebook serves up more black aluminum with a green backlit keyboard for an overall elegant presentation.

Instead of elegant subtlety, Alienware goes big and flashy. At 6.6 pounds, 13.2 x 10.2 x 157~1.62-inches, the Alienware 14 has considerably more junk in the trunk compared to the Blade 14.

A cross between a spaceship and Tron, the Alienware 14 ditched the lid"s soft touch finish from the previous generation in favor of sleek anodized aluminum scored by thin LED strips. As before, the tell-tale Alien head logo resides near the top of the chassis whil

like you said with basic technological skills not everyone

Alienware is VERY CLEARLY more about looks than performance , just like Apple , Beats, etc

Anyone with any basic technological knowledge can easliy see this just by looking at price:performance ratio
Posted by kai11 2 years ago
prove it because im talking about laptops you want to build one of those for purple octopus did not specify which type of computer but merely said and i quote "Alienware computers are way over rated"
Posted by Zack92 2 years ago
How can it have better graphics than building your own when you can put anything in your own? With Alienware you're paying for the logo and name. They still have to buy all the parts and add them in, pay for them to be out together and then put the price up so they get their profits.

All regular laptop makers do the same. So if you're a gamer and have the choice at a brand name computers only, then yes it would be worth the investment. But everyone has the option of buying their parts seperately and you end up with better specs or a lower price.
Posted by kai11 2 years ago
im saving up for a 2 thousand dollar one it has a much better proccesor than that of building your own and the graphics are ten times better
Posted by Zack92 2 years ago
Blade-of-truth build your own always it's so much cheaper. It's also simple to put together.
