DELL Alienware M17x R4 (AM17xR4-7263BK) Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 3610QM (2.30GHz) 6GB Memory 750GB HDD AMD Radeon HD 7970M 2GB 17.3
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I purchase this laptop at the end of April and had no issues with it. I'm Total War fan and its handles Shogun 2 on ultra settings. In about 2 hours Guild Wars 2 will finish downloading and I'm looking forward to playing. It is well built unit everthing works out of the box. The only difference between this laptop and mine is, I have a 2.6 Intel cpu and a 32GB ssd boot drive. This thing boots up in 30 seconds.

Cons: The top control buttons seem a little weak to me and the glare on the screen can be a pain at time. Not really a con but when I'm going all out in a battle in shogun 2 the fans really kick in, but its a laptop and I can play any game out there.

Other Thoughts: Razer Orochi mouse, took a little while to get use to it.
Razer Ferox speakers, compact for travel, better that the speakers on the laptop, but not as good as my Bose 2.0.
Lian-LI 220m fan cooling pad.
I didn't want the alienware bag, so it looks like the Everki Black Titan Checkpoint Friendly Laptop Backpack, fits 18.4 is the best way to go.

DELL Alienware M17x R3 (AM17XR3-6842BK) Notebook Intel Core i7 2670QM (2.20GHz) 4GB Memory 750GB HDD AMD Radeon HD 6870M 17.3
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

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.

Pros: Very quite, easy to install and it looks great.

Cons: Non

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace a Zalman 9700NT. Which when playing Cryss 2 or Shogun 2 the fan was hitting the heat fins driving me crazy. The temps are the same 34c idel and 54c when playing. AMD 955 Black edtion
MSI MB / MSI 6950 2GB.
