This review is from: DELL Laptop Alienware M17x R2 Intel Core i7 740QM (1.73GHz) 6GB Memory 500GB HDD Dual ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 17.0" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Pros: Crossfire 5870m

Cons: 1) For the tech savy, this is no biggie.

(If you're not tech savy call 1-800-alienware and talk to technical support and they'll either talk you through it or send a dell technician to your house to help)

Okay, this is the deal, You have to update the bios and video bios with the updates that are on dell's website. Also please use the video driver given by dell when you do flash the vbios/bios. As it won't work with anything else at that time. After you flash vbios/bios you should be able to use the drivers on AMD's website without any issue.

2) Slight con which lasted 3 days.

okay there was a small problem with the adapter being the wrong one. instead of giving me the 240 watt adapter they gave me one with lower watts

so I called up alienware and they sent a alien-ware technician to my house and replaced the adapter and the motherboard, for free.

Standard alien-ware service. (New egg lists 90 day warranty)

Other Thoughts: As usual, new-egg you have done well. This is why I only shop for computers/parts here. :)

Pros: Amazing Specs, Beautiful Design, Solid construction, Great performance

-900p

to be hoenst i had 1920x1200 on my gateway. not a biggie in my opinion. you might lose a litte productivity space but not a concern. if anything at a native resolution of 1440x900 you will be able to play the most demanding games 2-3 years from now at native resolution so it wont look bad at all

Cons: -needed tech support

Other Thoughts: So i was hesitant to buy this product at first. I usually dont buy refurbished. But i bought an asus netbook refurb from newegg and it works perfectly. so i figured id take the plunge even though it had a two star rating at the time i bought it. also the two year warranty is too cheap not to buy so i figured id have some type of guarantee.

i recieved my laptop and it wouldnt boot with the battery in. had to take battery out to boot. long story

short they gave me wrong power adapter. alienware service was pretty solid responsive courteous and had an idea of what was going on. got my new power brick everythign is working great. just did my first stress test. also not a scratch anywhere on the machine.

final thoguhts makes sure you update the bios, vbios, ati driver and the osd from dell site. if you can do all this you will have one slick, stable machine. this is imperative

Pros: Duel graphic cards. even the 5970 is not recomended to single or duel because they just jammed 2 5870's into one card without customizing with shaders ect. the best graphic option out for a laptop until new models. Hard case better than r3, lighting is awesome, i7 tears through everything and dont need 2nd gen because of graphic cards.

Cons: really would of liked 1200p rgb led! that is the only thinig that turns me off about the laptop, 2 5870s and a 900p lcd. i did calabrate it and it looks alot better but planning on swiching the screen out.

Other Thoughts: for the price this is a beast upgradable machine alienware case really is top notch. i wont take off a egg because of the screen because the price is so good. 6gb of memory is more than you can even use, they trick you into 12gb and more, be smarter! duel cards can use up to 6 sceens at once, i often use 2 and 3 for mixing electronic tracks in fl studeo, really comon now.

Rating: 5/5 wicked deal!

Pros: -CF 5870 ( can be upgraded to 6970 CF )

-quadcore with HTT ( easily upgradable to 940xm )

Cons: -900p screen

-DW1520 wireless card ( upgraded mine to Intel Ultimate N 6300 )

Other Thoughts: few things that needs to be done to get the laptop running smooth.

1) Update bios to A10 so the power brick ID is properly read through the system

2)5870 video card bio's has a official dell update that needs to be done to allow AMD drivers to be install *this is very important to do if your getting instability and crashing.
