Thanks! Sorry for the double post, not sure how that happened. Oh well.

I went with the i7-620m, GTX 260m, 4 gigs of ram, but stuck with the 1600x900 resolution. I absolutely love it so far. This thing as been on for a long time now downloading all my things and there is almost no heat compared to other laptops! Simply amazing

Nice choice on the 620M. For gaming, that chip is insane.

Okay, I may be retarded but on my m11x I cant mix the keyboard colors like this. I can only get one color or pulsing colors.

That feature is not supported by the M11x.
post #76 of 670
hey guys as this is an alienware thread u guys probably know best. My mate decided 2 gimme the m17x r1 for free as he got the clevo d900f which he spent a ridiculous amount on. Anywayz i was googling about the m17x r1 and found that nearly everyone had the DPC latency problem. Has this been fixed? I heard that the latest graphics drivers will fix but im not sure. The specs of the m17x im getting r Q9000, 4gb 1066mhz ddr3, gtx 260m SLI and 500gb hdd. Thanks

I think those who have the DPC problem had to switch to ATI GPUs. Sorry for the bad news. You can probably find more info on http://forum.notebookreview.com/alienware/

Very nice specs, I really wanted the i7-620M but for some reason it's not available on the Canadian website! The options I had were the i5-540M that I purchased, or skip the 620M and go into a quad core i7-720QM... I wanted to keep it dial with faster cores because I'll mainly be using it for gaming and general usage.

Plus, I was able to get Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 to use my GTX 260M in the Mercury Playback Engine... So no need for the quad cores for video rendering! That said, I will upgrade the CPU to an i7-620M myself when I have some extra cash to blow!

If I recall correctly the M11x only has 1 zone for the entire keyboard in AlienFX, correct? The M15x and M17x have 4 different zones so we can swap up the colors. Checkout my film_go.pngYouTube- Alienware M15x AlienFX - Rainbow if you haven't already haha!

Yup, the M11x can only have one color at a time.

Those M15x look massive and become more and more attractive, for the past years all I've heard about Alienware is that they are overpriced and huge and expensive bla bla bla.

Happy to finally find some awesome people
