The idea of a “gaming laptop” appeals to many people. Take anywhere performance sounds awesome indeed, but it’s not always that simple.

Manufacturers continue to make bold claims in this space, but do their claims hold water in reality? In this video series, we’ll find out!

Today we take an initial look at the Alienware M15 R2, an incredibly thin and lightweight laptop that without a doubt packs some serious hardware. Moving on from here we’ll be diving deeper into the world of laptop gaming to see just how the performance compares to an equivalently priced desktop, and what the trade-offs are.

We’ll focus specifically on things like overclocking, undervolting, thermal throttling, video editing and rendering, gaming at various settings and resolutions, VR compatibility and more.
