Dell has upped the maximum configurable RAM to 32 GB when compared to the m15 R2. The standard one-year limited warranty applies with extension options of up to 4 years. Dell's OLED option promises DCI-P3 coverage with HDR playback compatibility at the cost of a slower 60 Hz refresh rate.

Sentiment Score[*] 86%
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The Alienware M15 for 2020 is the latest version of the popular 15-inch gaming laptop from Alienware. Powered by the top-of-the-range Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Super mobile graphics chip. The M15 is easily Alienware's best, not to mention, thinnest 15- inch chassis yet. It has a premium vibe that has previously eluded Alienware, including the natty RGB ‘halo' ring on the rear.

  • Excellent battery life

  • Max-Q isn't for everyone
