Summary: Despite all the different reviews on Alienware products, i.e. overprice. This laptop is definitely the best on the market.Boot time is ridiculously in seconds and well built. The weight isn't as bad as I read in different sites.The cooling fans are not loud and are a great size for pushing air to the CPU and GPU.This unit will last you well over 4 years and still be revelant. And if you're in the Video DJ business like me this is on your checklist.
Amazing screen, fast processor, great RAM, and just overall fun laptop!

Summary: I really enjoyed the laptop. It is very heavy, but that's to be expected. I really love the speed, the memory, and the display. this is an excellent high quality laptop. I definitely think it is worth the money. Perhaps look into the newer editions, this one is a bit old. If an old one runs better than my desktop, I know that all the m17x series will be amazing.
Excerpt: well. i wish i could have one but it kinds of expensive to me. It's a nice laptop and the function are cool and fast with the i7,i5,i3 CPU plus the Graphic card. But there is imperfession on it, its the weigh of it. 4P wow! i couldnt imagine that and bears it around. Anyway it's great performance for gaming, Alienware is a great choice for who are Gamer.
Excerpt: I come from a Dell family! We love our Dell laptops and when the family gets together, there are at least 6 Dell laptops in the house. So, when it came time for my husband and I to get a new laptop, we of course wanted the Dell brand, but we, mainly my husband, decided to get an Alienware Laptop for the first time, with all the bells and whistles. Well, let me tell you - DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!
Excerpt: I bought the Alienware M17x for World of Warcraft play. It is configured with dual core processor, dual G-force 260's, 6 GB of ram, and 1 T of memory. This computer is absolutely amazing. It is so powerful and can do anything that I ask it to. My old computer had a difficult time multitasking and playing during high peak WOW hours. But this computer provides most all games at 60-70 fps at maximum resolution. I would highly recommend paying for the customer support.
Summary: People complaing about this laptop over heating are the one's not treating it correctly. Not leaving it on surfaces that it shouldn't be on (couches, cloth, etc) or not using cooler pads and running very hard games might cause over heating. Mine personally has never overheated. I run alot of things at the same time, and the computer is always super stable and never hangs up. This laptop has a very nice, sturdy design.
Summary: this is awesome. it doesn't lag at all for FPS games including Modern Warfare 3. you can play at high performances and still no lag :O All I have to say is that this is the best gaming laptop I've ever got, the 3d features are also really nice but most games don't have 3d so i don't recommend 3d. Thanks for reading . MAKE SURE YOU BUY THIS.
