Summary: I ordered Alienware 17 on 7/2014 I used to have older alienware 17 and it was flawless. Best and fastest laptop ever but after dell went from public to private they came out with new version laptop. It looked ugly but since this is the best laptop you can find in U.S. I bought it anyways but problem didn't stop there.
Summary: Had the computer for just over a year now. Since the day I had this laptop i was surprised and let down all together. It looks amazing and has fantastic features but the performance was not what i expected. Im not sure if its just my laptop but some games it will get 25 fps on normal graphic settings and in others it will get 60fpc on ultra settings. All the games ive got these results on were new and known for outstanding graphics.
Summary: This Product is good. It has good performance and a good grphic card. The problem with this product is, it's so heavy. But, other than weight; everything else is pretty good. I Love Alienware 18 and I am waiting for the new Alienware products.
Summary: Fast system with Solid State Drive, Raid 0 for addition speed. It offers up to 32 GB of Ram memory for running multiple programs at the same time. Looks sharp, and the options on the video give you the best video experience possible. Fast, Fast, Fast is the speed. Although expensive, you do get the bang for the buck.
Summary: This is the best performance you can get from a laptop for gaming. I used this not only for gaming but also video editing and other stuff, it just blazes through the job. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good performance laptop.
Summary: I recently bought this Alienware 18 for my son in college (IT Major). Even though I'm a "computer guy" in my own regard (my first PC was an Altair 8800 that was replaced by a TRS80-III), it's not hard for me to accept that he is now the acknowledged expert in the family. I can only offer here what was expressed to me the day he opened the package (it was a surprise) and now again, a few weeks later. Day 1: WOW! Day 28: MASSIVE WOW!
