Ethereum uses the proof-of-stake algorithm, where a network of participants called validators creates new blocks and works together to verify the information they contain. Despite PoS Ethereum presenting a significant improvement over PoW Ethereum with regard to the network’s electricity consumption, it is worth noting that blockchain technology in general is not energy-efficient compared to more centralized alternatives. This pushes the keyboard and trackpad away from the screen and toward you (more on that later). It’s way too small, especially stacked up to the luxuriously large trackpad on the Razer Blade 14. I was constantly running out of room, even for minor tasks like scrolling a webpage. Everything is pushed down, and it’s clear the trackpad was the lowest on the priority list for Alienware. It’s snappy, just tactile enough, and has a decent travel distance that’s comfortable for long typing sessions. That’s an important factor to consider over raw performance considering the Alienware x14 R2 is the thinnest laptop in its class, clocking in at just 0.57 inches. The measure of contents has the Swedish cubic foot for its unit, divided into 10 cans of 100 cubic inches each.-Sweden and Norway form a single kingdom, but have separate internal administrations, the king residing alternately in each country.


The connexions of both countries with foreign states are regulated by the Swedish minister for foreign affairs, but when the king has to settle matters concerning foreign states which also are of importance to Norway a Norwegian councillor of state has to be present. Generally, the States in which slavery flourished have enacted statutes providing for legalizing such marriages by certain formalities, and in a few States continued cohabitation merely, after emancipation, was held sufficient. It’s still a world-class 14-inch gaming laptop and one that’s easy to recommend with a few caveats. This is a laptop you’ll want to use with an external mouse. Accounts that use the Global Inbox are sometimes called “deferred” accounts, and it is possible to create deferred accounts that do not use Local Folders for the Global Inbox. And, when you just need to top off the machine, you can use most GaN chargers without any problems. The Alienware x14 R2 is an attempt to correct the problems with the previous version and earn it a spot among the best gaming laptops. The power adaptor for the Alienware x14 R2 is as portable as the laptop itself, which is a welcome change of pace compared to most other gaming laptops.

The last time we looked at the Alienware x14 – almost a year ago to the date at the time of publication – it was clear the storied gaming brand had a compelling laptop on its hands. Alienware’s X-series keyboard is one of the best you can find on a gaming laptop. Competitive machines like the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 offer up to an RTX 4090 while still promising a highly portable gaming experience. Alienware plays its cards smartly here with components, so although you can’t pack in an RTX 4090 like you can with the Asus ROG Strix Scar 17, the Alienware x14 R2 trades raw power for great portability. The plus here is USB-C charging. It’s not hard to imagine you’d want to connect an external keyboard and mouse to the Alienware x14 R2, but you can only connect one without springing for a USB-C hub. It’s a configuration that feels right for the size and portability of the laptop.

A contest had in fact been going on in my mind for a long time, between the clear consciousness of right and the plausible make- shifts of theology and superstition. I’m not sure why the machine is missing a second USB-A port. I’m not a huge fan of the MacBook-like approach Alienware took with the x14 R2. That was a major point of contention in the previous model, so I’m happy to see Alienware update the aspect ratio of the display. I tested the latter model, which is a significant step in core count below the Core i7-13700H that’s easier to spot in Intel’s current CPU lineup. As you can see from Geekbench 6 and Cinebench R23, the Alienware x14 R2 was able to outpace the Acer Swift X 14, despite that machine sporting the 14-core Core i7-13700H. You can configure the Alienware x14 R2 with either an Intel Core i5-13420H or Core i7-13620H, offering eight cores and 10 cores, respectively. I reviewed a tricked-out version of the Alienware x14 R2, which isn’t all that tricked out as it turns out. The Alienware x14 R2’s display is decent. It’s flush with connections, including a full-size HDMI 2.1 and a microSD card slot, so it’s strange that Alienware opted for two Thunderbolt 4 connections instead.
