Summary: I bought this computer about a year ago. I've had several problems with it. The keys on the computer have started to break off of the computer. I am not rough with my electronics. I take very good care of them. This cheaply made keyboard looks pretty with LED lights but is not very sturdy. I have also had several hard drive crashes with this computer.
Summary: I sent a version of the following to Dell by snail mail and received no response. I purchased an Alienware M17X (service tag 2QDV4K1) on July 21 2009 with a 3 year Limited Warranty and Support 2 year extended. I bought it as a "Gaming Laptop" where I paid a premium price ($2,517) for the gaming aspect. I think I purchased it during the transition phase while Dell was assuming control over Alienware.
Summary: I purchased the Alienware M15x laptop through Amazon in late November. My experience with this laptop and Dell's support of it was deeply disappointing. I wanted a powerful laptop to serve as a desktop replacement and as my primary work computer, and I was drawn by the Intel i7 quad processor and powerful mobile graphics card.
Summary: I'm in total agreement with the others, this spec is rubbish! I would go as far as to say that the one 5 star review is probably someone linked with the seller. KEEP AWAY, BUY ONE FROM DELL'S WEBSITE!
Summary: Feel Sorry for anyone who has been taken in by this, I Know computing, if You are willing to spend this type of money on a gaming Laptop, do Yourself a favor and get a custom build, for Example, around the same money You can get 1. MSI MS1762 Gaming Notebook 17.3" FHD LED-Backlit 1920x1080 16:9 Display w/ Built-in 720p HD Webcam, HDMI Port, Li-Ion Battery, & Universal AC Adapter 2. Intel® Core(tm) i7-3740QM Mobile Processor 2.70 GHz 6M Smart Cache, Max Turbo Freq.
Summary: When I checked out the details I couldn't belive it. This laptop doesn't even worth £500 at max. For the price asked you can but the following alienware: Mx17 Intel i7-3720QM 3.6 16GB RAM 500GB + 32SD GTX 660M 2GB GDDR5 and other addons such as killer Wireless card.
