    I have both. I prefer my m17x r4 as its design is best imo. Both have awesome keyboard layout and better build quality compared to later Alienware models (except the area 51m).

    M17x r4 definitely.
    It can handle some serious modding.
    Mine has 3920xm running 4.3 GHz at gaming and 4.6 GHz when working alone.
    The graphics card is msi gtx 1070 with watt limit sat to 220w.
    The whole thing is water/air cooled and powered by 2x 330w PSU connected with a dual psu adapter.

    The reason I don't like the Ranger is the fact it can not support a dual PSU adapter because of bios limitations.

    How did you get past the power limitation of the mxm slot? Common knowledge states its only slightly better than the ranger in that regard.
