Summary: used it for right at 1 year with only a few overheating issues. It was also a bit slow near the end of its useful life. Then it crashed and can not boot up at all. I can not get it to reboot. Not even with win 7 dvd boot disk- it says check cable connection. So I can not even get a chance to try the alien respawn download. Laptop is simply NOT worth it.. much better off going a different direction than dell nowadays.
Excerpt: Well, to start things off, hello everyone. I hope your day is going well. Today I will be reviewing the Alienware M11x Gaming Laptop. First off: The Design When I first removed the M11x from the box it had come in, i was blown away.
Summary: This is the 3rd one of these in my house now...IMHO Dell should not have stopped making this model....excellent as always...great all the way around...perfect weight and size for power and mobility.
Summary: I love this little computer! I like having both a wide-screen laptop for long term projects, and a small laptop that I can carry for "just in case I need one" trips. This laptop is small, compact, and powerful--perfect for a videographer like myself. It runs the Adobe Master Collection CS5.5 with no trouble. I love the firewire line-in for video uploads; and it has plenty of USB 3 ports. I read else where that the only flaw in this laptop was the lack of disc drive.
Summary: I was hoping to get a decent computer when I ordered this. Since they have stopped manufacturing this model I was afraid that I would be getting a pretty beat up definently used version of the M11x. This was not so in my case! I got a pristine model which is so much faster than I thought it would be for such a small little system. I absolutely love the illuminated keyboard for such a little system.
Great Budget Buy for a Used Laptop That Outperforms Newer, More Expensive Laptops.

Summary: I bought this laptop used with upgrades including a 500GB 7200RPM Hard Disk Drive, brand new internal LCD, and an external DVD-RW Drive with Lightscribe for $377 USD. It also came with the soft case, box, and everything else you'd get with it had it been purchased new. Despite being an excellent buy for the money, I was a bit concerned if it would be a good enough buy for myself, as its intended use was to be a work computer for graphic design and animation.
Summary: I have owned this notebook for about 6 months now and I'm really happy that I bought this machine. I really wasn't in the market for a new computer but when I got a new job that requires me to be away from home about 90% of the time, I had to get a desktop replacement to help keep my sanity (TV is over rated). This little guy is awesome small and easy to carry around. The battery can last me between 3 to 6 hours depending on what I'm doing.
Summary: I can play all my games on max settings np, the battery life is amazing, and It's so tiny and cute that when you travel with it..many heads will turn! If you are interested in buying this laptop Please note there is no way to change the color of the Alienware Head on the back of the monitor, it's not a big deal but it caught me by suprise. I brought this at almost all max setting with the core i7.
Summary: The laptop itself is great. The first couple days it will seem glitchy and thats because you need to do all of the updates for its especially windows 7 service pack 1. After that the blue screens of death stopped.Mine came with one of the rubber stands on the bottom shorter than the others so when you rest your left palm on it it jiggles. I just superglued a penny to it and the problem is gone.
