maybe I just got a lemon...

Amazon Customer, Amazon
10 August 2012
  • Summary: Got the laptop in March of 2011 and was amazed with the spectacular lighting as well as how great it handled games. My issues which i've been seeing a whole lot now is more with customer service. At about six months my screen was just not working. It kept turning completely white when picked up then it would do it all the time.

M17x R3 is the old model. Current M17x R4 has better components, lower cost.

  • Summary: Going by various reviews from reputable sites on the net, the Alienware M17x models are not as lousy about overheating every hour, like Alienware laptops used to be. I still have the top-of-the-line model from 2003 and its an absolutely useless PoS. As for the M17x, its not that loud in regular operation, but can get quite loud if you run demanding games on it.

Good Looking Computer But Poorly Engineered

Animal, Amazon
8 July 2011
  • Summary: Pros: Cool looking exterior. Top of the line video card. Cons: Overpriced. Easily overheats. Sub par components. Poorly engineered on the inside. I have owned four Alienware computers, including three laptops and one desktop computer. I was severely disappointed with all of them. My first two laptops all died within one year. And, my last two were replacement computers given to me by Alienware and lasted no more than two years.

RAM 8GB, HDD 750 GB, No BluRay Drive

Leeham, Amazon
9 June 2012
  • Summary: Ok, I'm not an expert of the computer technology stuff. But I ordered this laptop two weeks ago. It came today. I checked the system. It is Intel i7 -3610QM CPU, RAM Installed memory 8GB (NOT 16 GB), storage space 750 GB (NOT 1.5 TB), and there is a DVD driver (no blu ray driver). The plug is not in UK form, maybe American or Chinese form. When I was buying this, it was 1700 pounds, and it said it would come with a colour printer, which I DID NOT recieve.

Жестокая правда жизни...

  • Summary: Вещь в принципе нормальная, только черезчур дорогая. Буфер там точно не нужен, не говоря о таком большом обьёме оперативки. Поставили бы 16 гб. И ддр5 и тогда было бы классно, но его реальная цена не выше 70.000 рублей!

No vale su precio

  • Summary: Malo, malo, malo. En verdad, esta es una vil y sucia estafa para quien no sabe de hardware en computadores. Cualquier otro Pc de escritorio lo supera por la mitad del dinero, así que si de verdad eres un gamer no vas a comprar esto. si eres un usuario casual que tiene esta cantidad de dinero, gástalo en un Mac: ahí encontrarás verdadera velocidad. Pero si de verdad quieres comprarlo, el computador no es malo: en verdad es buenísimo, pero no vale su precio.
  • Pros: Computador precioso y muy veloz .  Técnicamente impresionante
  • Cons: No vale ni el 70% del precio en el que se estáa vendiendo .  Ordenador del año 2009

25 March 2011
  • Summary: J'ai acheté le M17x il y a un an, dès le 1er jour j'ai remarqué l'incompatibilité de la batterie qui bloquait l'ordinateur quand on la débranchait puis elle ne chargait plus puis au bout d'un mois d'utilistion elle bloquait le demmarage de l'ordinateur, comme je ne voulais pas la renvoyer meme sous garantie (vu que je devais m'en separer pendant au moins plusieurs semaines pour le dignostic) j'ai fini par demonter cette fichue batterie, puis qq mois apres le pc a comencé...
  • Pros: Machine puissante, coque en metal hyper lourd ca sent la robustesse
  • Cons: Prix, des problemes à gogo pour un pc si cher

Accablé.

Maxlpn, Ciao
21 December 2010
  • Summary: Je déconseille fortement l'achat de cet Alienware. En effet, il s'agissait de mon troisième Alien, la qualité de cette machine et le design sont époustouflants soit. Mais on ne peut tolérer des problèmes de stabilité ou de pilotes lorsque l'on pratique des prix élevés comme chez Alienware. En conclusion, deux écrans bleus avec deux problèmes bien distincts, plus de 3 heures avec le sav en moins de 10 jours et un Bios qui semble instable.
  • Pros: Qualité et design magnifique .
  • Cons: Complètement instable, non testé donc trop cher payé .
