In our Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition review, we praised its sleek, attractive design, comfortable keyboard and beautiful display. We gave the m15 Ryzen Edition an overall rating of 4 out of 5 stars for its solid overall and gaming performance.

In one test, we opened up 45 Google Chrome tabs — some running TwitchYouTube, Tweetdeck, Google Docs and Google Sheets. We launched a few shopping and news apps for good measure and the m15 didn't stutter. In our lab, it scored 7,288 on the Geekbench 5.4 overall performance test which beats the premium laptop average of 6,823. 

Design-wise, the m15 R5 sports Alienware's new Legend industrial design with thin display bezels. Weighing in at 5.4 pounds and 14 x 10.7 x 0.5~0.9 inches, it's on par with its predecessor, the m15 R4 (5.3 pounds, 14.2 x 10.9 x 0.7~0.8 inches). It's a pound heavier than the Razer Blade 15 Advanced Edition (4.4 pounds, 14 x 9.3 x 0.7 inches) and lighter than the Asus ROG Strix Advantage G15 (6.6 pounds, 13.9 x 10.2 x 1.1 inches).

If you're looking for an Alienware laptop with AMD hardware, the m15 Ryzen Edition is a solid choice.
