Excerpt: Alienware has always been known to produce beatiful looking laptops/computers, and they did not disappoint with the Alienware m15x. This powerhouse can handle almost any game depending on the certain specs. My friend owns one, and being a gamer, he really needs the top quality and playability. It runs perfectly smooth, with no problems and is a great machine just to use for day to day functions as well. The only complaint I would give to this laptop is simply the price.
Excerpt: Almost everyone has heard about the Alienware's gaming power. Utilizing the Intel i-series processors, SATA/Solidstate hardrives and top of the line graphics; Alienware contains a lot of bang for it's price. They are easily some of the best pre-built computers on the market, however having all of this gaming power has it's price. Alienware it notorious for over-heating and are regular victims of cooling fan failure.
Summary: Pros: High performance. Great lighting effects! Beautiful screen. Shipping is fast. Much earlier than estimated delivery day. Cons: Way too large and heavy. Can't fits in a normal 15.6 inch laptop bag.(I hate this point since my bag is expensive and obviously can't be returned to China where it is bought) Speakers aren't very good. Sometimes it sounds like a jet engine. (Although most of the time it is very quiet) Too expensive!
Excerpt: This is one big, fat, powerful laptop that likes to put its weight around and isn't ashamed of doing so. Coming from a Dell Studio XPS 13, this laptop is a monster - both in size as well as in power. The most striking attribute at first glance is the design - which, depending on your taste, is...
Summary: I bought this laptop with the intention of primarily playing Starcraft 2 on it and taking the strain off my old desktop. The features on this Alienware product are very intriguing, such as the facial recognition login. It is pretty unnecessary but a cool feature nonetheless. The lights on the entire computer can be changed to different colors which is pretty cool especially since the advertised red color is super bright on the eyes.
Summary: I placed the order for this computer Thursday night, and with one day shipping received it Saturday morning. Both Amazon and UPS have figured this logistics thing out. Out of the box everything looks great. All of the specs lined up except one... it says it has an 8-cell battery; however, seeing that they don't make an 8 cell battery for this laptop, i have to think that maybe they meant to say a 9-cell battery?
Summary: Decent gaming computer, but buying from amazon sticks you with factory defaults. It would be easier and probably cheaper just to buy from [...] unless you are like me and live in an area that they dont deliver to.
