5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great Computer. Is super fast and I like the design. It doesn't heat up as much as my old HP Envy did (maybe gets to 69C max, and I didn't even apply Arctic Silver to it yet). Like the AlienFX and comes with a second hard drive enclosure which worked great for installing my SSD.

The laptop is also easy to open to get to the hard drives, ram, and other motherboard things.

I also like that the BIOS isn't locked down and can even overclock if I want.

Cons: Screen is not fulled HD as newegg claimed. FullHD is 1920x1080, this laptop is only 1600x900. I had 1080 on my Envy so I have to adjust to the lower resolution. No blu-ray drive either.

Other Thoughts: I really like this laptop and am happy with my purchase. The sound is great (after turning off WaveMaxx stuff) and the HDMI in could be useful. I also like that there are 2 more memory banks so I can upgrade with high performance ram.

Windows Index score:
CPU: 7.5
RAM: 7.7
Graphic card (AMD): 7.2
and my SSD is rated at 7.7.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: Fast, plays Shogun 2 at ultra, Crysis 2 no problem. Great looks and finish. Rec it two weeks earlier than stated. I'm getting about five years out of my laptops and this one should keep up longer than the others.

Cons: Little to much glare on screen, and the very top bottons seem a little weak.

Other Thoughts: Not sure I should have posted this review. I have a M17x R4. With Intel i7 Ivy 2.6 quad, AMD 7970 gpu, 6 gb ram, 32gb ssd boot, 750gp storage. Last thing for anyone who has had a problem with their new laptop, before you blame the MFG, remember that UPS or Fedex were the last one with their hands on it. I didn't buy this at new egg because I had employee discount with my company and a gift card.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat speed with a major flaw

Pros: 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.

Cons: 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. And if you push too hard when trying to get the keys to latch, then you are out of luck. Luckily my first experience with Alienware customer service ended in a keyboard replacement in less than 2 days from calling tech support. However when it started happening again tech support was not that helpful. I was told I would need to purchase a replacement keyboard for $110! The laptop is under warranty for 4 more months. I was even considering extending the warranty.

Other Thoughts: My suggestion is to use the built in keyboard as little as possible.

5 out of 5 eggsGet a mop

Pros: This laptop performs as well as my last pc build (before this one), and that is saying alot for a laptop (i build my pc's for gaming). I played assassins creed revelation at 1080p with all high settings and 4x antialiasing with 30-60 fps. The cpu performs better (by 30%!) than my 4.1 ghz overclocked phenom II x4 be. very impressive for a laptop.

Cons: The only thing i think is wrong with this laptop is the pricetag. yes, it is the coolest brand of laptop on the planet. yes, it has high end processor and very passable mobile graphics. yes, it has pretty lights and a lot of ways to configure them. but 1500 dollars for a laptop with the same specs as dells xps that runs under 1000 dollars... pretty expensive for some 'bling'. that being said, i knew all that and still chose to buy the alienware, so i guess their strategy works lol.

Other Thoughts: There will be drool. Puddles. Just got one today (from another site, hence my lack of 'verified owner' status on this item) and was not let down. artfully crafted and decked with cool stuff like lights, and more lights. and a couple of alien head... lights.
