It might be thick, but the latest Alienware laptop's a heck of a performer, and not too insanely priced. And it has a neat glowing touch pad.

The good: Dell's new Alienware 14 offers great performance, competitive prices, and quirky features such as a backlit touch pad.
The bad: The new design still feels dated, and it's as thick as a few slim laptops stacked together. The fan is insanely loud.
The bottom line: Dell has revamped its gaming line, including the new Alienware 14. The design changes don't go nearly far enough, but no complaints about the performance.
