I know exactly the mark you are talking about. I have a notebook mousepad that I put in between the screen and keyboard when I have it closed up for that exact reason.

I gotta say one thing that I absolutely hate about this notebook though... why is the ac adapter input in the smack dab middle of the back of the notebook? Also, WHY ISN'T IT A RIGHT ANGLE AT LEAST?

Speaking of the screen, was there a screen protector on when you got your m14x? I want to put something between the screen and keyboard but don't know where to put it when I'm using the laptop, especially at school. I'll probably lose it

Yeah that ac spot is seriously annoying

Do you mean like a clear plastic sheet? I can't recall to tell you the truth. I don't believe there was.

Like I say I use a very thin mouse pad in between. It works pretty well, plus if you carry around a mobile mouse, you have a pad to use.

Yeah the only scratch protection I got was a film on the power button

You can order a screen protector with anti-glare on eBay for like 12$. The only issue with my screen, is that I find it's already kind of dim so I don't want to make it worse

hey all,
just a quick question, i reformatted my m11x last night, got all the drivers/windows updates(running w7) but all the alienware stuff eg. taskbar, startup screen, finder windows, are all just normal win7. So does anyone know how to get these things back? I've tried the resource disk but it doesnt appear to be on there.

Thanks

^ You have saved me alot of money

Wow I'm over my budget by 200$ but I think I can squeeze it out of my family since it's my birthday soon.

From the base model I was only looking to add the Radeon HD 6990M and the 1920 x 1080 60Hz screen. With that I was looking at 1789$ through AAFES and 1949$ regular priced.

I tried contacting a few people through the chat last night but they weren't very interested in working with me to reduce the price. It was around 11pm though. After browsing through the thread I came across Wesfry92 saying ******* gave him a great deal so I emailed him. This guy responded within 10 minutes. I told him the two upgrades I was looking for and he said he'd see what he could do.

Next morning and my eyes about popped out of my head. He'd added:
Radeon HD 6990M
1920 x 1080 60Hz screen
8GB Dual Channel DDR3
Killerâ„¢ Wireless-N 1103
3 Year Limited Warranty
Accidental Damage Service, 3 Years
Next Business day shipping
All for 1,900$ w/ tax.

I configured this laptop through the AAFES and it cost 2,235$
W/out any discount it was 2,567$

This was all through email. I made some half-hearted attempts w/ some sales reps through the phone but none could even come close to this. If you want his sales rep info PM me but his gmail account is just his username@gmail. He says he's only going to be working there for another month so hurry if you want to work with him.

Ordering tomorrow.
