Alienware M17x R3, Where is it?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I don't care about your opinion on Alienware so don't post it or start a flamewar, I'm currently shopping around and just noticed something.

I keep reading about people getting "m17x r3s" with nvidia GPUs and the like but I can't find ANYTHING about them on Dell's site, did they disappear with the recent Sandybridge issues or something?

Was set to order one in the next week or so.. Guess I might be stuck waiting.

All these intel shenanigans are really messing with my purchases

Yes, Dell has decided to stop all new and current orders for the R3 due to the SB mobo recall.

I would say in light of the recent SB issues, Dell along with every PC related company is halting the sales of products with Sandy Bridge.

You may find one available soon as intel is now selling off the defective boards to oems that dont plan on using the affected sata ports

While I'm sure it was read off a card the dell rep I talked to was all "DELL IS WORKING WITH INTEL TO ENSURE MAXIMUM QUALITY OF OUR PRODUCTS AND THEY WILL UNDERGO RIGOROUS TESTING TO ENSURE EVERYTHING IS IN PRIME WORKING CONDITION"

After April, you'll probably see them back on the site/market as April is the targeted date of repair for all of us R3 owners affected by the mobo mishap. I will be sending my laptop back for the fix hence the reason I'm building a PC to tide me over.

If the OP is still looking for something with the same performance, you can buy a sager/clevo laptop with the same specs and a lower cost right now and only have to wait like 2 weeks to receive it.
