Nice design and high end specs for the time.

insufficient number of usb ports, terrible drivers for its own hardware (AlienWareFx crashes constantly, Tobii Eye tracker half works, Killer WiFi.. Why, why why!!!? it crashes and stops working randomly... barely any real support.

I really like the build quality, just feels really well put together. Also love the design. Performance is very good as well. If you have the money I'd definitely recommend it.

Little expensive, but feels worth it.

+ Great, stand-out aesthetic and design + Performance is beastly, although does drop to 30/35 fps on some newer AAA titles +Killer WiFi is brilliant +Great screen for a TN Panel, colours are good

Had to send the first unit back as it had a plethora of issues. Speakers were faulty, every time I turned on the machine an extremely high pitch whine emitted from them, reinstalled new drivers to no avail. 3 black lines on the screen, and the LEDs on...

I love the look of this laptop it looks truly out of this world and also the gpu amplifier is a fantastic feature as I will always be able to run games with top performance

The farm are a little noisy but keep the laptop really cool which is better than having a pop top which meals the skin off your legs

I haven’t come across a game that this laptop can’t handle, even in ultra definition/specc

It is fairly heavy and the battery life isn’t great, but that’s to be exsepcted with the amount of hardware it’s packing

ALIENWARE 17 17.3" Gaming Laptop - Silver

 

Powerfull, runs most games at ultra and native resolution. Sound quality is top notch. Heat management is good. The build quality and design are perfect, no flex no wobble.

Price is high, but in comparison to other similar spec laptops it's plenty of bang for buck. Battery life is short but you expect that so it's a moot point. Fans can be loud, but rather have that then a fried system.

This is a fantasic laptop for gaming. Purchased specifically to use with the Oculus Rift. Nothing about this laptop disappoints, yes its big, yes its heavier than a standard laptop but this is a power house with great build quality and design and the...

big and heavy wouldn't want to travel with this but to be expected from a laptop of this stature. I don't personally see this as a "Bad Point!"
