Anyways, here is the paragraph I'd like you to read. You can click the "View Post" arrow to read the whole post but it's mostly irrelevant when taken out of context:
You know, you're right. If I had the money to invest in a really nice laptop, over $1800 (that's the next tier for gaming laptops for me FYI), I'd go for Alienware just because I know how nice the jobs are. Very high quality components, I get that. But I had about $1200 tops and the Qosmio matches the performance of an Alienware that costs a good $450 more than mine. This was also before the Sandy Bridge mobile processors came out back in mid-November of last year.

The odds were more in favor of this massive monstrosity. And to be entirely honest, my laptop is on par with the weight of the M17x machines out there. Had I been more patient I would have saved more money up and bought a much more powerful machine. I found the X505-Q892 model for $200 off retail at newegg and couldn't pass up that deal. Not to mention it had been JUST installed with the GTX 460m which was the final icebreaker for me.

My apologies for the previous post. Alienware is beyond reputable for their warranties and service. I was looking at the M15x machines and I couldn't find one that fit the price range for me, as stated above, so it didn't end well in those regards. Again, my apologies.

Just so you know, that's the older "m17x" with a lowercase "m". The uppercase "M" is reserved for the new "All Powerful" series laptops. Do you know what the full model number is and if it's an Aurora or Area-51?

If you're asking me it's it's an Alienware m17x-R1, it's not an Aurora or Area-51 since it's a laptop.
post #338 of 671
Actually, from your specs and pictures, it's neither an Alienware Area-51 m17x, Dell Alienware M17x-R1 or Dell Alienware M17x-R2. I own a maxed out M17x-R2 and is a member of the Alienware forum at NBR so I know my stuff. Your ATI HD3870 belongs to the Alienware M17, a rebrand of a OCZ/Flextronics model (the "whitebook"), http://www.notebookreview.com/default.asp?newsID=4824, also the fingerprint reader on the right is a dead giveaway.

Sorry, not trying to be confrontational but I hate the spread of misinformation.

Well here is what i have...

Yes that is the Alienware M17, not the m17x or the Dell Alienware M17x.

Your model is the upgraded version of the Alienware 9750.
