PROS
Everything arrived in perfect condition.
Excellent packaging by Alienware.
Computer does not get too hot.
Computer can max out settings on practically all games. For example, Half Life 2 maxed out looks surreal, GMOD or Garry's Mod can now handle over 100 NPCs battling each other and you can even run around during the action (instead of just standing still observing). I am in process of testing this computer out on more recent, modern games.
Computer can render animations very fast for highly demanding software such as Cinema 4D, even with plugins TurbulenceFD and DPIT Effex for rendering fire, smoke, and water; which are considered very complex graphics.
CONS
Ordered the computer 7/29/12
Order date changed to 8/10/12
Order date changed to 8/27/12
Computer delivered on 8/17/12
Delivery time not too bad, but I had to call Dell about my order's status and Dell assigned a case specialist to ensure my computer's arrival before the expected delivery date of 8/27/12. Computer did arrive before then on 8/17/12 (to my surprise!). Anyway, delay was due to a part being backordered. Problem resolved by Dell.
OVERALL
Thank you! 5 Stars!
Pros:Gaming, surf the web, animation
