Default Re: Avoid Alienware!

i had the same problem, i had an alienware area-51 7700 or somin like that and it sucked. the part where your wrists lay DOES get EXTREMELY hot and eventually it will melt the color off the plastic, and the battery life on it now, after about 6months is about 30 minutes. I thought about making it into a desktop with the parts but good luck finding a case compatible with notebook parts.

sry man, get a dell or somin next time. theyre really nice. my mom has one.

Reef, if that Alienware is crappy, return it for a full refund. Buy a Dell or a Toshiba Next time.

That they do! Which is actually really good.

And not to mention Alienware is a Dell company. Dell bought out Alienware sometime during the beginning of the year.
