it would be a good idea to make the alienware r3 and improve the bad things of the r2 like a 2nd fan intel haswell and a better nvidia card also to remove the the optical drive because no that much people use it and that would make it thiner and lighter also make the prices lower or let them stay the same because they are expensive but you got the point that is a high quality gaming laptop (p.s sorry for spelling mistakes i just wanted to make the idea so i did not focus on spelling) or you can make the alienware m11x r4 many people ask it so that would increase how many people buy it
Dell should sell empty Alienware chassies of all their products not just M15x. For example an Aurora R4 alx or non alx, or a x51
In this age of 1TB HDD's and 64GB Flash Drives being available dirt cheap, I guess we can do away with DVD Drive on Alienware M14x. I believe a very small fraction of AW users actually use DVD Drive. If we remove DVD Drive, we can make space for an extra SSD/HDD Slot, and a separate Fan+Heatsink for GPU which will allow dell to give us a more powerfull GPU. Maybe we can even make the GPU user replaceable like CPU. Benefits are numerous if this idea is considered. Benefits:1) Powerful GPU2) Option to have use replaceable GPU card3) Install separate Fan + heatsink for GPU which will mean smaller fans and quiter operation4) Remove DVD Drive to make room for numerous features: -Larger Battery ( 10 Cell? ) or - Slot for additional storage drive (HDD/SSD) -Lighter Laptop with maybe less thickness - Space for more connections like thunderbolt, Optical out, S/PDIFIf DVD Drive is something that can't be removed, atleast present users with two different variant of M14x. One with DVD Drive and other without it. Just like apple has Retina Display Macbook and Older Macbook.I am sure with resources available to Dell R&D team, this is something feasible. I am sure other M14X ( or even M17X) users will agree with.
Hey Everyone,So I decided to make a post saying what would be nice for the M14x R3.I don't know about everyone else, but I'm looking for a very portable laptop (11-15 inches), with high end power for gaming.The M14x ALMOST made that specification.Here are some ideas that could make the M14x R3 the ultimate portable machine: Add 1080p resolution Give options for AMD HD 7970 or the upcoming 8970 OR Give options for Geforce GTX ___m So far those are the only improvements I want for the M14x, as better graphic cards is the main improvment to make.Good job Dell and Alienware, keep it up!
When will Alienware come out with a new monitors for destop users? Don' t you guys think it's been time? Preferably 27" 2560x1440 LED 120hz! alienware area 51 alx setup: 1) windows 8 64 bit 2) dual asus 7970 running CF 3) dual ocz vector 256gb ssd running raid 0 4) asus blu ray internal player 5) alienware optx aw2310 monitor 6)1200w J297R power supply
It would be great to see user customization for fan controls offered in the Alienware Command Center. Please consider this in an updated version of AWCC, as it would be greatly appreciated. This would eliminate the need for customers to use third-party utilities such as HWiNFO64 for this purpose. Some of the competitors offer this feature and this would be an added-value enhancement for Alienware customers, especially the Alienware laptop owners.
I think it would be a good idea if Alienware offered their M17x and M18x graphics cards as purchasable accessories on the dell website. Why should we have to go to ebay or attempt to order them from the Dell parts warehouse? It would be much easier if they allowed us to purchase them from the accessories/upgrades website. It seems a bit silly that Dell will teach you how to replace the part, but won't easily sell it. I think they could make a ton of extra money and they would truly make their laptops upgradable.
GUYS I AM FROM INDIA, AP, HYDERABD. AS IN HYDERABD THERE ARE A LOT OF HARD CORE GAMERS. I AM INTRESTED IN BUYING A M17XR4 LAPTOP FROM INDIAN STORE BUT THERE IS FEASIBILITY OF UPGRADING GRAPHIC CARD FROM GTX 675M. WHAT WE EXPECTING IS FOR AMD RADEON HD 7970M. IF U GUYS ENABEL AMD RADEON HD 7970M IN INDIA DELL STORES TOO IT WILL BE SO GOOD.. PLZZ TRY TO UPGRADE GRAPHIC CARD OF M17XR4 FROM GTX675 TO AMD RADEON 7970M OR GTX 680M. PLZZ TRY TO FIX THIS. HOPE THIS WOULD WORK. THANK YOU.
We had the ability to disable battery charging in bios on the m14x r1, but on the r2 there is no such option. I think it is a great option that allows us to disable our battery at lower battery charge states, as to prolong its life. Research shows that li-ion batteries degrade faster when stored at full charge. It is best to leave them at around 50%.Dell/alienware please put this option back in our pc's!!
Well now I own the M17x and the M18x and the nice latitude 14 inch bus laptop. Based on my usage of the m18x as a desktop replacement I think the x51 would be more suitable. As one of your very best customers I also own a Dell 30 inch I would like to suggest one humble change to the x51 or two rather lol.Please, Please add the new Asus gtx 670 dcmoc small card. This thing is purely awesome 6.5 inches long and 30 percent cooler and quieter then the reference card. This will make the X51 perfect except two more things really lol.Drop the darn optical drive That will save space, improve cooling, cabling and weight and cost. Most everyone downloads or you can just add an external, please take the lead in this Dell. Also add the possibility of a 480 to 500 gb ssd.If you just do these things I will once again throw the x51 on my dell financial account and add to the already 15k I have spent in the last 4 years Dell. I am seriously looking at htpc cases from Silverston and Lian Li because the X51 is far from perfect right now. I hope you are listening, I suppose I could add the card myself and the ssd but then it would not be under warranty which is the whole point of buying Alienware.
