ANAL­Y­SIS

HWM (Singapore) - - Multi- test -

The Dell Alien­ware 14 was the only note­book to have a Su­perMulti DVD drive and Mini Dis­playPort con­nec­tiv­ity, two use­ful fea­tures omit­ted on the com­pe­ti­tion, but let down by its bulky di­men­sions and the lack of an SSD. This made it the least por­ta­ble note­book in our shootout, while the de­ci­sion to go with a tra­di­tional HDD also meant that it suf­fered in per­for­mance. The MSI GE40 is an in­ter­est­ing propo­si­tion, com­bin­ing good spec­i­fi­ca­tions, ex­cel­lent stor­age con­fig­u­ra­tion and a low price tag. Un­for­tu­nately, it is let down by be­low-av­er­age build qual­ity and dis­ap­point­ing dis­play panel. The Razer Blade is the sex­i­est and most por­ta­ble by far and it of­fers de­cent per­for­mance. Sadly, its TN panel dis­play is a mis­match, not only be­cause it didn’t sport Full HD res­o­lu­tion, but also be­cause it looked washed-out.
