I called Dell today to tell them RMA this POS and give me a full refund. UPS is picking it up tomorrow.
Goodbye Dell/Alienware. I thought I could come back and give you a 2nd try but the only part where you haven't disappointed is the part where I knew you'd utterly fail.
Anyone have suggestions on a kick ass gaming laptop that doesn't look hideous?
I own a Sager/Clevo and it is an awesome machine. The Optimus takes some getting used to and I had to manually go through the Nvidia CP and select which GPU I wanted to use with nearly every program. To me it sounds like you have a bad dGPU and whenever you go to use it it stops working and reverts back to the iGPU. That is a pain because you likely have to RMA the whole machine and have them swap it out (depending on the socket and if it is soldered to the MB) or send you a new machine. If you do decide to get a refund check out the new Sager machines, they are very reasonable and can be totally customized. The new Sager NP9130 has dual GTX 780Ms in SLI for under $1700 to start, just to give you an idea. I absolutely love mine, it is a well built and reliable machine. Although I don't game on it much now that I built my new desktop.
