24hour stability test passed, running games and programs full24hours under the workload, everything checks out, stable running Overclock hits P7568, which is pretty good.

I have a question, do you know if you are able to send in laptops to XoticPC for custom colors or the like? Or is it only new systems purchased from them? My girlfriend wants a new laptop but I refuse to let her have anything until I snag her a M15x that I can upgrade for her, she wants pink which she thought would be a snide way of making that laptop a deal breaker. Its either A, XoticPC can repaint it for me, or B, I do my own leg work and repaint the laptop myself
I prefer the M15X myself, 920XM coupled with a 485M or a 7970m if I can work myself past the fact its not nV. (Had a rather horrible experience once upon a time) Would be enough for me...
You should really be buying an alienware new from alienware. I don't mean to be an ass about this but people need to stop trying to haggle out old crap when you get so much more out of an alienware if you buy it brand new from them. Or at LEAST it under warranty so you can drop some cash and get a 1 to 4 year extention on the systems warranty.
One of the biggest damn benifits of gettting an alienware is its support. If you go with an alienware, try to see what it will cost to get a new one, and then check out the memeber purchase discount(usually 2%) and then see if they have coupons(usually there's an 80$ off one, but sometimes you can get ones that drop almost 200$ off of it)
I have heard of many people getting alienware systems off of HidEvolution.com as welll and they have a good rating as well. They dont charge you tax and you can get it in 2~4weeks.
The new haswell alienware laptops are literally being announced tonight so hold on to your shorts with that m15X because the new m14X will probably outpower it and any upgrades you can put in it AND have optimus technology like that m15X wont.
The nehalem/arrandale laptops are garbage compared to the ivybridge/sandybridge laptops with optimus.
No you can't send in parts to XoticPC and have them do their services is for you. Something reguarding legalities or whatever.
The new haswell alienware's are featureing ips panels and and aluminum bodies, and an upgraded touchpad, along with the standard haswell cpus, gtx700 gpus, and hopefully around the same price margins.Edited by FranBunnyFFXII - 6/10/13 at 5:55am
