Summary: How can I start this review off. First of all, it was a great laptop for the 3 months that it worked. It got a Windows error, causing me to reinstall Windows 7. It installed fine and all, until I needed the recovery disk that it never came with. I called Dell asking about sending it to them to get it fixed properly, they told me it would cost about $400-$500 dollars, WITH the warranty still on the stupid laptop.
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!
Summary: I've had the Alienware M17x for almost three years. I'm trying to get a few more months of use out of it before I take a hammer to it and then set it on fire. I'm not very tech savvy and I'm not a gamer but I spend a lot of time online. I wanted the fastest laptop available for that simple task so I ordered the Cadillac version of the M17x which set me back nearly $4,000. For that much money, the thing should perform flawlessly even if you drop it off a cliff.
Summary: I was thinking about buying the Dell Alienware M17X laptop,but I changed my mind when I read all of the complaints about Alienware. Got to the Dell website and type in Alienware Club, and read all of the complaints about Alienware. I had a Dell desktop several years ago and had nothing but trouble with the computer and customer service.Dell hasn't changed. They still sell poorly engineered junk and still have crappy customer service. Dude, I don't want a Dell.
Summary: I have owned this laptop for about 8 months at this point. Let me tell you that is by far the fastest laptop I have ever used. It handles most games with ease at full graphics. That being said there is a major flaw with this laptop. Within 2 months of owning the laptop, the keys started popping off. Dell does have a picture tutorial on how to put this keys back on, but if you follow the tutorial it will often lead to adjacent keys popping off.
Do not purchase the M17x (or any other alienware pc)

Summary: First of all, let me say in plain english, Do Not Buy an M17x or any other Alienware PC. I remember that once upon a time, dell was a great company. They built quality consoles, they had the warranty that set the industry standard, they cared about their customer support. It is clear to me that these things no longer matter to Dell. A big name and customer loyalty brings us back time after time.

Avoid Aliendell like the plague: Horrible products, horrible shipping, horrible customer service

Summary: Well, first things first, the computer took about a month to reach my house because it was sent from Germany to Ireland. It went from Germany to China (?) from China to the UAE (!) then back to China (seems like it forgot something) then back to Germany (no place like home!) and then to Dublin, Shannon and, finally Cork (This computer has seen more of Ireland than me!) When I finally received it, I started having problems from the moment I got it out of the box.
Summary: Hi, I've only given this product 1 star as I think that most people will look at the highest and lowest rating for a product so I'm hoping that this gets read. I've wanted an Alienware laptop for some time now, so after seeing this on Amazon and after reading the other review by Doro I thought I was onto a winner. High spec, 3D, R3 version and all for a price some £500 cheaper then directly from Dell.
