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.
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.
Summary: When first purchasing this I did not know what to think. Wanted a good laptop but did not want to pay alot of money for. Went to Dell site and for everything laptop has in it put it why over the price I purchased it for. It Intell dual Core processing speed 1.30Ghz,4GB OF Ram and can expand up to 8GB. And a 250GB Harddrive and a very good 11.1 viewing screen with a 720p HD viewing and a dedicated graphics cards 1GB which means one hella gaming machine.
Summary: It's a netbook in size only. This thing is a gaming POWERHOUSE! It can play all of the latest games, the only thing it lacks is an optical drive, but i gains by a pre-install of the Steam Client and Portal for free. only thing that i don't like how the backplate isn't customizable anymore, and you can't laser etch your name into the plate when you buy off of amazon.
Summary: This laptop is amazing. It plays every single game I own on maximum settings, except for starcraft 2 where I can set everything to Ultra except for shaders. Portal 2, Mass Effect and Oblivion all work perfectly with all settings maxxed. With shaders anything other than low I can barely manage medium settings for some reason, which is weird because shaders depend on the graphics card rather than processor.
