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: 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.
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: This is especially painful for me because I backup my entire library of music, television shows and movies so my windows backups do not fit entirely on to a single DVD. Having the redundant hard drives allows me to skip this painful task and be security in the knowledge that my data is safe. Overall this computer is ideal for someone who needs a laptop that packs a punch and can handle higher end processes, and games.
Summary: This is the first one using brand new Intel Core i7 with Sandy Bridge. It's been re-designed, look more cool, a lot of great options to config. What an awesome "desktop replacement laptop" !!!
