Gsync is not available on internal panel because it's hardwired to the intel GPU, the 970M and 980M is only used for 3D calculations that the intel GPU displays.

You also may want to look into Clevo laptops. Their offering IMO are much better than anything else on the market for a gaming laptop.

What in the world... I didn't even know there was an Alienware owners club. I bought an M14X R2 back in July of 2012. Best laptop I've owned up until a year later. I could barely play games on low settings at 900p lol.

Didn't realize we had an Alienware club over here either. I've got a Alienware M17x r3 and an Alienware 15 r3. Both are great machines, but I miss the older style. Miles ahead of the stuff they are producing now. frown.gif

Agreed. The issue with the newer models is that the lip is on a slight edge so it ends up being a tad uncomfortable for your wrists. I have an old M17x R3 still laying around... barely works. :/ I loved it while it worked, but eh...

I loved the keyboard on that machine. The one on my 15 just feels weird. Mine still works fine, its just getting long in the tooth for gaming. I usually use my desktop for gaming anyway. Only got the 15 cause I got a pretty good deal on it from dell.

Hey all, I just got the 17 R4 (Late 2016) with the 1080P 1920 x 1080 IPS TOBII Panel

Was wondering if anyone has experienced light bleed and returned for replacement because of it?

This is exactly whey I went away from Alienware. The quality has just went down and down..I would return it. I sold my Alienware 17 R2, and bought an MSI GS73 VR..Huge Change, Lighter, thinner, and better specs.

I must have lucked out. No light bleed on my IPS. CPU temps have been fairly good, while the gpu has been running a bit on the warm side. I've had my 15 r3 for a few weeks now, still getting to know the ins and outs of owning a laptop, once again. The unit I ordered has the unlocked skylake 6820hk, and gtx 1070. I migrated the os from the factory
SanDisk 128GB drive onto a Samsung Evo 960 256GB. Went ahead and ditched the hdd in favor of a 512GB SSD SATA drive I had laying around. This weekend, my Conductonaut arrived, so began the teardown process. The gpu had been running warm, because the factory thermal paste was applied lousy. After the liquid metal TIM application, my gpu temps dropped apprx 30c, and the cpu around 6-9c. Worth the effort, and now battery, as well as component life should be extended quite a bit. I've got a decent overclock on the cpu and gpu as I travel with my ac adapter for full wattage. Couldn't be happier with my 15r3. With a bit of time and patience, it's become quite a bit more than the sum of the parts.
