New Alienware M17x Gaming Notebook Switches Between Full Throttle Performance with NVIDIA SLI and Low Power with NVIDIA HybridPower Technology.
You'd be better off (quality-wise and price-wise) with the superior Clevo M980NU (Sager, Eurocomm, etc...). Plus it's 18.4" versus 17". ;) Same specs otherwise. (though I wish they'd release it as 17", myself...)
4 year costumer from alienware :), hardware never has lets me down and always perform the same + no dead pixels :D!
Me too, except I'm not paying $2000 + for it. Do you know how many thousands you can save building your own computer?
I know, i built comps. I dk what they do but they do it right. The comps i have built have had lil probs after 2 years but the alienware ones i have stay strong. I dk what they do but they do it super right
back when that model was the s#it.it performed rather well, that is until the raid controller was damaged from the heat that beast created. sadly, when it came to repairs SAGER failed. Good luck trying to explain your situation to their tech support. looking back i should have taken that 4500 and built a pc myself. but i wont rant here. Just google "complaints made about sager"
4500.......... DAM BRO!!!!!!!!!!! thats way 2 much LOL!
Umm, not that that isn't a good notebook, but i don't want to know how hot that thing could get.
59 minutes. Oh did I mention that you can cook eggs on it too ? ;)
Wow wish I had that.
same specs from Dell. Isn't alienware own by dell? I don't think the 1730 can turn off certain funtions like this model. but they aren't really made for you to travel with, always have them plug anyways.
It's a like a bunch of stoners got together and said, "Hey, you know what would be really badass? Let's take a laptop and just F*cking soop it up and make it as powerful as possible. Let's make it so powerful the keyboard will be like 120 degrees hot." With the kind of cash that laptop costs you can just build a better desktop. Plus, you can upgrade your desktop, whereas once the laptop gets outdated you have to toss out the whole thing.
I like the tech gone into the Alienware laptops but at the same time the price for a cheap alienware laptop is over 1000 euro. The prices for the alienware laptops are redicolous.
I had a 17-inch laptop once. Didn't like it, the screen was beautiful and the computer powerful as hell, but it was just too big and heavy for practical portability. I've since gotten rid of it and I use a 12-inch now and I'm much happier with it.
This is the beast I was looking for. Come to papa!
