Summary: I have had mine for about 4 years now, never had any issues with it. (Other than the Pre-loaded Windows Vista - but Alienware sent me a free Win7 Ult upgrade when I purchased the laptop) A lot of people see "Alienware" and think they all over heat and that they are all garbage becuase Dell owns the name - If you are going to game, it's going to get warm... I placed mine on a desk when I gamed and never had it overheat.
Summary: when i first heard bout alienware products i was hooked,but never had the money for it.I saved enough money and brought one online,my first alienware laptop.This thing is sweet!!! i love the color and it plays all my pc games with no problems, i have brought many of laptops over the years and they just cant pull of the graphics,but not Alienware im playing the the really best graphics games now!!!
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.
Summary: I just wanna say this laptop is really good. I have it for more than two months and there is not any issue with it at all. Diablo 3 runs smoothly on this machine and all of my friends around admiring my Alienware.
Summary: Just received the laptop a week ago, however will be returning it due to a newer version of this laptop just being released (with GTX660M and additional 2GB of RAM for similar price). I must say I am highly impressed with the machine. I would not be returning this if the newer model was not released.
