Alienware Thunderbolt Support

Apr 21, 2014

2 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

I'd like to recommend adding support for the latest Thunderbolt standard on the Alienware laptops. There are a couple SSD devices I'd like to use with these beasts but unfortunately none of the Alienware laptops seem to support Thunderbolt and instead have pokey USB ports. Don't get me wrong USB has gotten better but it can't stand up to the latest Thunderbolt standard.

Ditch Alienware 14 and make thin n light Alienware 15 to compete with MSI GS60/70 and Razer Blade

Apr 11, 2014

Hello, As the title suggests I'll get straight to the point.Because Alienware 14 is so thick and heavy the 14inch screen on it seems pointless. Discontinue Alienware 14 and make a 15.6" thin and lightweight Alienware laptop that has similar portability as the MSI GS60/70, Razer Blade and Mac Book Pros but can match or outperform the MSI GS60/70 because they have GTX860m and GTX870m thus they are the most powerful thin and lightweight out of the 3 mentioned brands.If Alienware pulls this off it would really give them a run for their money.And regarding the design it off course has to look on par or even better than the mentioned 3 competitors above. Don't make it look imature but subtle like the current Alieneare 14, 17 and 18 but maybe even better.Thank you for your consideration.John

Alienware 18 - Blu-ray option

Apr 9, 2014

2 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

I suggest that it be possible to add/upgrade/customize the Alienware 18 low tier builds to include Blu-ray.  Right now, you have to have a DVD RW - you have to go to the 3rd model to obtain Blu-ray.  I don't see why - you can get similar build in 17 with a Blu-ray to a 2nd model Alienware 18.  Or even make standard with the option to downgrade to DVD RW.  I think a lot of folks - possibly everyone - who buys a laptop with that big a screen will want to use for movies at least sometimes - and Blu-ray is the way of the future... and is just a better picture period, fully taking advantage of wonderful Alienware display.Thanks!

How are SSDs in notebooks increasing productivity?

Productivity or Luxury?

I've read a few of the comments in this section and for the most part I agree with most of the people posting. My personal opinion: I will NOT own another laptop for my office unless it has a SSD. The performance when compared to traditional hard drives is more than enough to justify the cost and I believe there will always be a cost (soft dollars) when employees are waiting for their machines to spit out the data (or loss of production because of a reboot). There isn't anything more frustrating for me than dealing with where compared to a slow computer and with the 3 major components (CPU, Hard Disk Speed and Ram) SSD's have really helped boost the performance. As I posted in other threads, I use an Alienware 18R2 for my office production. I get few strange looks from customers, especially those that know what an Alienware laptop is, but I’ve had almost every laptop Dell makes. (XPS, Precision, Vostro, Inspiron to name a few) and none of them have the performance need. When a customer is waiting on me and in turn I’m having to wait on my laptop (or any computer hardware) the SSD’s have paid off.  Time is money and in my company SSDs will be here to stay. (Both in laptops and desktops) While the companies next door are still waiting for their computers to boot or waiting for their AV scans to complete, I will be getting my work done. --LANMAN

Samsung SSD`S should be the standard drive in all Alienware computers

Mar 27, 2014

Alienware uses different manufacturer`s drives. It would make sense to use Samsung in all the Alienware pc`s. The standardized brand would be more appealing to the buyer and make it much easier if a replacement is needed.The faster load times and cooler running SSD would be a big plus for gamers.

More powerful GPU's are a must!

Mar 21, 2014

Status: Acknowledged

I just saw Razers new Blade Pro come out with a 870m which is a 100 watt gpu in a 14" 2kg form factor. So why does Dell not manage to put anything better than a weak k1100m in a m3800? a 765m in a Alienware 14 which is 41mm high and 2,7kg heavy!? a 750m in the xps 15? a k2100m in a m4800? Dell is seriusly way behind the competition and needs to catch up.

Alienware 14, 17, 18 Needs to have options for 7200 rpm drives and SSD Drives (256 to 1 tb)

Mar 10, 2014

4 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

Hello,I have been planning on getting an alienware 17 or 18 laptop for the last few months but have begun growing increasingly apprehensive due to the mediocre hard drive options. Initally Alienware offered 7200 rpm harddrives as a default option. Last month, only two laptops offered this, and now every hardware for all three laptops only offer a 5400 rpm hard drive with 80 gb caching ssd.For a performance powerhouse company, this is pretty disconcerting. I vote that Alienware either reinstate the default hard drives of 7200 rpms or give us the option to upgrade to it. In addition an option to upgrade to a 256, 512, or 1 tb SSD drive should also be given. I believe that the hard drive options were lowered because the cpu processor was increased, however, I don't think there is that much difference between a 4800 and 4900mq i7. Please vote to reinstate the 7200rpm hard drives on the alienware 14, 17, and 18 laptops, or give us an option two choose these. They should have a minimum of 750 gb, but 1 to 2tb would be preferabble. Options for real SSD drives, and not 80 gb caching harddrives would be nice as well.

Alienware M14X R2 hinge

Mar 8, 2014

2 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

Dell should implement a recall for the Alienware M14X R2 because the left hinge is obviously faulty. I've read thread after thread echoing my experience in whch the hinge broke and the computer cannot be opened after only 14 months. The computer was not dropped or otherwise abused. There was a recall for the M11X or the same reason.  $1.2K for a computer that breaks so early after purchase is not good business.
