Title: Great service and laptop
Posted24 September 2012
Yes, I would recommend this product
After a long time of thinking about purchasing an Alienware laptop and searching around the web at other brands, i decided to go for it and order the M17x.
Firstly i made a mistake on the online order form and after recieving the email confirmation, and seeing i put the wrong display and wireless network card, i quickly called Dell and explained what i would like to change it to. He promptly changed it and sent an email there and then with the correct order information.
I ordered it on the 20th july and got a delivery date of 13th August, it wasn't too long to wait but i got another email a few days after updating it to 2nd August which was even better.
When it arrived it was packaged really well and comes with a really nice Alienware box. I took the laptop out and was surprised to see it comes with it's own Alienware protective sleeve. It feels really strong and solid, and the display is amazing and not like a mirror like some people have said.
I turned it on, installed my games and have been gaming happily with no problems at all.
Because of lack of funds i ordered the basic package: Intel Core i7-3610QM, GeForce GTX 660M, 6 Gig memory and 1080 display.
The main games i play are Diablo 3, WoW and Battlefield 3. Diablo 3 and WoW play at Ultra settings with no lag whatsoever, with Battlefield 3 it plays with a couple of settings turned down to High with no lag at all also.
Pros: Display, screen, graphics, sound, speed, solid machine, colour customisation.
Cons: Only one i have come across is that the back 2 fans are right where your legs are when sitting with it on your lap, so they are covered up. Not really a bad thing for me because i use it on a desk most of the time, but maybe something for Alienware to think of in the future.
Some people say the weight is an issue but it's really not that heavy.
Last but not least they ran out of mousepads when sending it out to me (i didn't even realise it was meant to come with one) but after a week or so, and without me even contacting them about it, they sent an email apologising and sent one out to me with quick delivery.
Overall great service from Dell with the order and perfect laptop with no problems at all. I reccommend it to everyone.
Pros:Gaming, web surfing, photoshop
