Lets have some more details on this statement please, are you talking about a desktop or a laptop? If you're talking about a desktop... Why are you even in this thread? You can't compare laptops to desktops, sure they have similarly named hardware, but mobile hardware is VERY different than its desktop equivalent. I know that I personally would never buy a desktop from any kind of retail store or online store, building desktops yourself is always the better option and I'm sure most of the members in this club agree with me!

If you're talking about a laptop that you customized yourself from some other manufacturer then you need to rephrase your question, because that's not "building it yourself". If you did happen to build a laptop yourself using some kind of customizable chassis then your going to have extremely low build quality compared to our laptops.

With that said, most of the club members here have done their research. We own Alienware laptops because of the entire experience, not just because of the brand and reputation. Alienware laptops are probably some of the best built out there, they are extremely sturdy and don't feel like little plastic toys. Add to that the amazing warranty and repair services provided by Dell and you've got a laptop that won't be down for maintenance very long. Then there's the "cool" features that shouldn't even need mentioning like the AlienFX customizable lighting and the chassis design.

Overall I'd have to say Alienware offers the overall best consumer laptops available for purchase.

Anyone looked into replacing their plastics or am I the only one who is old school enough to need to?

I'm impressed to see so many old Alienware's still working, I think that's why I went for this company, reliability.
Aside from the CD/DVD drive that has been flackey since I got it, and that I think the motherboard may finally be telling me it's time, it has been running like a champ since day one.

Just got Alien Swarm and Lead and Gold. Both run great on my M11x R1
Mostly older games, really. StarCraft, Diablo II, Daggerfall, Morrowind, Half Life 2, Spelljammer, Morraff's World, Lego Star Wars. I also got Alien Swarm. Getting some kind of weird delay every once in a while on everything so I may reimage again.

And I didn't get added to the list at the top.

I don't think so, but it's something really close to it, like 98% maybe? Keys are a bit slimmer, but height wise they're the same.

Couldn't have put it better myself.

I picked it up at the midnight launch, I'll install it on my M15x I guess but it won't really give you any accurate results to compare to an M11x. The beta ran fine on my M15x when it was still active.
