eh.. I have it. i wouldn't say it's beautiful in every way...

Granted, I love it. But I wouldn't pay more than $800 for it.

Pros:

*Looks sick nasty
*Awesome LED lighting
*Alienware (I've always wanted an Alienware Laptop : )
*555m gpu (Overclocks VERY nicely)
*14" screen

Cons:

*SUPER GLOSSY SCREEN <= This slightly bothers me. It wouldn't bother me so much if they didn't make the entire display glossy. I can understand the screen being glossy... But every time I open the thing I have to be very careful because the whole things is glossy. (I hate finger prints, lol)
*When the fan kicks on high (Doesn't bother me, I'm gaming so the sound is turned up. It bothers some ppl though.)

I've tried a couple mods... The first works really well for me! I still have the A04 bios (Not the new A05) because I'd rather hear the fan than have my gpu/cpu run hot. But in order to improve airflow on the go... I bought these

Mod 1 - Simple mod to increase airflow when you don't have your laptop on a cooling pad.

Mod 2 - I knew this wasn't exactly the best idea.. But I gave it a go anyways...

I put a filter in between the backplate and the fan to try and reduce noise. It did reduce noise... However the temps went up 3/4 degrees. Not worth it IMO.
