Product Description

Product Description

When your opponents swarm down like locusts, the Alienware M17x laptop gives you the firepower for all-out extermination. The incredibly powerful Intel I7-2820QM mobile processor, ATI HD 2GB 6970M dual-graphics processing unit (GPU) graphics and Alienware’s dramatic industrial design deliver the ultimate high-definition mobile gaming and entertainment experience. Experience incredible scalability, performance and compatibility while obtaining desktop-quality imagery with the M17x. The 17" widescreen LCD display featuring a dual CCFL back-lit LCD with higher brightness will give users a more detailed, higher-quality imagery than single CCFL displays and with an 8-ms response time, ghosting will be a thing of the past !

The Alienware M17x whilst being a fantastic performance system also offers some additional features unseen in their rivals. For example the Stealth Mode allows discrete graphics cards to be turned off and other components throttle down to achieve a 65W power limit. There is also the Alienware Command Center which provides intuitive, user-friendly access to exclusive applications and controls, including AlienFX lighting effects software and the AlienFusion power management system. You will also receive updates and new releases which download directly into Command Center, creating a constantly evolving tool for modifying and personalising your M17x. Another fantastic feature of the M17x is the AlienSense facial recognition software which identifies numerous distinguishing features, utilising the M17x’s webcam to read and verify biometric measurements that cannot be faked or stolen like a typed password. This allows users to be confident that all of their personal information and data is safe if they were to ever lose or have stolen their laptop.

Power isn’t only on the inside of the Alienware M17x. You can protect your world with Alienware’s all-new, anodized aluminum case design with aggressive lines and in-your-face attitude that can manage your thermals and look good doing it. You will also have access to the QuickTouch system control pad which allows you to run your fingers above the keyboard on your M17x and you won’t feel a thing. Your laptop, however, will. The Alienware QuickTouch control pad uses touch-capacitive sensors to access and manage power and volume controls, Bluetooth and wireless connectivity and Command Center and Stealth Mode launch functions. Illuminated by the dramatic AlienFX lighting control system, QuickTouch renders mechanical buttons and control knobs obsolete. The M17x also comes with a fantastic 3.0 megapixel webcam and digital microphone array which lets you broadcast across the web, while wireless capabilities have you up and running anytime, anywhere. The M17x also comes with a 1 year warranty direct with Dell which can also be upgraded via them after purchase.

Well, first things first, the computer took about a month to reach my house because it was sent from Germany to Ireland. It went from Germany to China (?) from China to the UAE (!) then back to China (seems like it forgot something) then back to Germany (no place like home!) and then to Dublin, Shannon and, finally Cork (This computer has seen more of Ireland than me!)

When I finally received it, I started having problems from the moment I got it out of the box. BSODs everywhere. They seemed to be caused by either the GPU or the motherboard. I called Alienware and they sent a "tech". I say "tech" because he had no bloody clue about the computer: he repaired it looking at an instruction booklet. He changed the mobo and the GPU (causing a POST error in the process) and then the screen. This solved nothing.

After that, I held to the computer for several months, enduring the BSODs, but they started becoming more frequent, until I couldn't stand it anymore and called Dell/Alienware. After much begging, they took the computer for repairs and changed the motherboard AGAIN. Unsurprisingly, I started having BSODs less than two days after receiving the computer.

Fed up, I called Alienware and asked for either a swap or a refund. They won't have any of that. They are offering to """repair""" the computer again (I bet they will change the mobo, that would be something new!). So, I have a piece of overpriced junk, that can't be repaired and won't be swapped or refunded. Avoid Alienware: they're the Nickelback of the computer world. Sager, Novatech or even ASUS or MSI are probably much better and less overpriced.

Ok, I'm not an expert of the computer technology stuff. But I ordered this laptop two weeks ago. It came today. I checked the system. It is Intel i7 -3610QM CPU, RAM Installed memory 8GB (NOT 16 GB), storage space 750 GB (NOT 1.5 TB), and there is a DVD driver (no blu ray driver). The plug is not in UK form, maybe American or Chinese form. When I was buying this, it was 1700 pounds, and it said it would come with a colour printer, which I DID NOT recieve. Other than all of those, the laptop seems pretty cool playing with. So one star off for each lie the seller told us!

Avoid!

Awful laptop - very cheaply built and breaks down all the time - had mine for 5 months and already needed several new components and repairs.

There are much better laptops for less money that are much more reliable

The specs that this machine arrives with WILL NOT be suitable to play games on and as for the price its absolutely ridiculous much better to pay a £1000 and have a good desktop rig after all this thing is too heavy to carry about and battery life is measured in minutes unless plugged in
Avoid this like the plague

i bought this hoping to have a high end gaming laptop. Instead i got a glowing ufo with alien face motifes. When i took it outside the general public started to panic, the army showed up with tanks and started taking aim....now im dead and noone misses me. I wish alienware didnt feel the need to make their laptops look like fairground attractions

Was delivered after nearly 5 weeks, only had 8GB of RAM installed, security seals broken, and second hand batteries. Unplugged battery life of about 30mins. Continual crashes caused by overheating, and after finally getting so frustrated that I started a clean build on it, found that the Motherboard had been installed by drunken chimps, RAM was also secondhand, lots of poorly soldered connections. Undoubtedly the biggest chunk of s*it i've ever handled. AVOID AS IF EBOLA.

I don't own this particular model, I personally own the Alienware 18 with 24GB DDR3, 2x GTX 780M in SLI and Core i7-4700MQ.
Now...The computer itself, to me, is BRILLIANT! Have had it for well over a year and no problems so far, everything works, the cooling is excellent, handles mild overclocking well and it just plows through all the games, some of which I play at 3072x1728 or 2880x1620 because there's just that much power. So nothing wrong with the system I PERSONALLY OWN.

HOWEVER, I wanted to just budge in and say that I paid just over £2K for my system, new, on eBay! What does this mean? It means this system is a TOTAL RIP-OFF! Even if you were getting the specs as advertised (and god forbid if you don't as some people have stated here) the specs are just TOO WEAK/OLD for anyone to even remotely contemplate putting down 3 grand for! I got 50% more RAM, a slightly stronger CPU, a 50% Stronger graphics card of which I even have TWO and a bigger screen to enjoy my stuff on - all for £1K less than this garbage...

It seems they are looking for idiots with fat wallets to sling old stock to...

I just couldn't pass on this opportunity to comment on this robbery in the middle of a day!
