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: 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" !!!

Summary: I received my Alienware M17x R4 a few weeks ago, its performance is fantastic, if you are going to buy one, be sure to upgrade to the 32GB of RAM its well worth it, it's a beautiful laptop...I also got nVidia 3D glasses and software with it and I have been playing Skyrim, Need for Speed and some Strategy games all with full graphics not one of them ever slowed down..
Pros: Sexy design, Fast optimized performance, Colourful and customizable
My teenage son almost cried with joy when he received this for his birthday

Summary: This is the perfect computing solution for someone who wants bleeding-edge computer power with portability. The dual-high end graphics cards are a boon to games players (especially first-person-shooters) and also to anyone doing intensive rendering of 3D objects such as engineering and architectural students and practitioners. Getting the warranty transferred was a little fiddly but the Dell service people are very helpful and patient.
