Oh, it was 1.6, sorry I mixed up biggrin.gif

 

Is that your main system or is it a portable gaming machine?

Oh god, finally a place to answer my eager questions wheee.gif
Im interested in buying an alienware M11X R3(after deciding that a GPU upgrade was not necessary and that a CPU upgrade was also not necessary on the desktop) mostly because my 4 year old laptop is getting way too heavy since Im now using it more to work compared to anything else.
I also wanted a power house cause Im going to college next year and gonna work study programming, compiling in various languages, etc.
I usually spend my weekends away from my desktop and going on a train for 3h's and walking etc with a 10kg backpack filled with a 6kg laptop and the rest are cloth's, etc. It is rly tiring.
I wanted an Acer that had the AMD C50... It had Full HD playback and could game kinda decent, now I've seen the M11X R3 in a newsletter from Alienware... Well it was a new crush.
But the thing is I live in Portugal and this laptop aint sold here, Im counting on my aunt who lives in the UK to help me out...
I also been checking the Dell Outlet for good deals and they have an M11X R3 with 4Gb of Ram/500Gb 7200RPM HDD/i5 for 450 pounds.
Thats rly cheap but its a "Certified Refurbished", can any1 explain to me what does that actually mean?
Is the M11X R3 worth it?
Should I risk the Certified Refurbished?
I plan on using it alot for a considerable period of time.

Hm, that's a tough question. I got a 'certified refurbished' product as a replacement for my broken M17x R2. The keyboard wasn't securely in place and underneath of it the LVDS cable was quit litterally ripped out of the socket. (The end stayed connected, it had live wires hanging on the main board)

This is my only experience with a refurbished Alienware. I did buy a refurbished Dell laptop once and it was in 10/10 condition and worked perfectly. I don't want to discourage you from buying a refurb, but I think it's a situation where your mileage can vary pretty wildly. If you have to go through a lot of hassle to get it, I'd maybe first contact Alienware support and find out if you can have it serviced/replaced in Portugal if you need to, otherwise the savings might not be worth the risk.

I already researched on that with Dell, I can change the location of my warranty to wherever I wish to, just need to fill a form in their website.
After that its just like if I bought the computer here, in max since Alienware's do not exhist in Portugal the RMA may take longer to deliver the laptop back to me in case I need to.

Picked up an M14x and installed the new Momentus XT 750GB in it.

This hybrid hard drive is fast! I timed it booting up in 18 seconds.

Damn that's fast. This is exactly what I'm planning to do after the HDD prices come down lol
