Pros: Strong CPU / GPU. Runs very quiet even when gaming. Cooling performance is fantastic. Screen is a beautiful IPS with no bleed or dead pixels, case is solid and strong, extra buttons are easy to configure. The headphone amp is strong, plenty of space for hands to use the keyboard. NO bloatware.

Cons: The keybaord is a little flimsy in some spots, mostly the left side. The included HDD is dog slow.

Other Thoughts: I had the new Alienware 15 and sent it back after getting frustrated with the i5 CPU that I thought I could live with. Cloning this HDD to my 512 SSD was cake using the Crucial kit you can buy on here, zero issues. I also put in some G.skill 16GB cas9 ram, not needed but I figured I would anyways.

This laptop is actually competitively priced with Asus and MSI for the specs. That's new for Alienware, Dell customer service isn't bad IMO. Side note: I also tried the graphics amp with a 970 when I had the 15 inch. Good idea but worked poorly with graphics drivers often failing. The amp also feels very cheap and has loud fans.

Pros: It's a strong card for a decent price minus of course the 3.5 ram fiasco.

Cons: Very annoying coil whine, returned.
