Summary: I have owned two M18X R2 laptops for over two years. One of them has never caused any problems whatsoever--it is a perfect, reliable laptop. My other one, however, has been a basket case since the first day I got it. The motherboard was bad right out of the box, so Dell replaced it under warranty.
Summary: My work bought me this, then few years later, I took the plunge to buy this, after selling my Macbook Pro 17. Well, this is the cheaper one, because I bought it on my own. The work laptop was maxed out and costed around $6k. Yes, Win 8 makes no sense.
Fantastic Laptop (Well, laptop in the technical sense)

Summary: This is probably the most impressive laptop I have ever had the pleasure of owning. Well, actually it IS the most impressive computer I have ever owned. They call it a laptop, it functions like one, it has a built in screen, but it is about as mobile as carrying six bricks along with you.
Summary: After purchasing this laptop it has performed very well and been able to handle any game that I threw at it. However, after owning this latop for 13 months, one month out of warranty the motherboard goes up in smoke "literally".
Summary: While it is a heavy weight - 17lbs - it has an exceptional battery life. I accidentally left the thing on without being plugged in for a couple of hours. It barely registered on the battery meter. The changable lighting is pretty neat also.

Summary: The screen went out August 10th. Sent back to Dell and they received it August 13th. Well here it is a month later and they still have it. AND every time I call them (India) to see where it is and whats going on they tell me they have to escalate the case.
Summary: I have loved this day from the very first day that i got it. I always play games on this laptop and it runs at maximum power non stop. It is the best laptop i have ever owned. I also use skype on it everyday and it never runs out of steam, or ceases to amaze me.
