All three laptops deliver what you’d expect from a high-end gaming notebook despite the fact that they have a different choice of materials. In this case, it’s all matter of personal preference. The Alienware 17 uses anodized aluminum with smooth, soft-touch plastic around the interior and carbon fiber inner frame in order to bring the weight down but keep the sturdiness. It also features tons of programmable LED lights around the chassis, including the keyboard, which is separated into several zones.
The Predator 17, however, uses a slightly different approach. The carbon fiber composite is in another form – fiberglass. It’s used inside the chassis for better sturdiness without affecting the weight much. It’s a pretty solid machine, but the chassis all-around is covered in soft-touch matte plastic. It’s prone to fingerprints and smudges and it can be considered as more fragile compared to the Alienware and ROG G752. The keyboard LED backlight isn’t adjustable, though, but uses the same amount of macro keys as its direct competitors.
As for the ASUS ROG G752, it’s somehow a step backward from the last generation in terms of overall rigidness. However, it carries a refreshing new look compared to the old G751. ASUS has used mostly plastic for the entire build of the chassis with soft-touch matte plastic around the keyboard.
