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.
The Alienware M17x r3's 3D controller will not allow the user to install an NVidia 680M into the machine and still be able to push 3D on the system. The problem appears to be that the M17x r3 BIOS doesn't contain the certificate needed to validate the 680M is a card that is able to push 3D. Dell/Alienware should make the additions to the BIOS for the M17x r3 to allow this newer GPU to push 3D in the system. Additionally, the new fixes released today (7.18.12) inside of the A05 M17x r4 BIOS regarding the GPU boost technology should also be included in this BIOS update for the M17x r3.By adding these two simple features to the M17x r3 BIOS, Dell/Alienware is enabling a considerable amount of individuals to purchase more hardware and help ensure long-lasting customer satisfaction.Status Update: This idea is now Under Review. Please be patient as we will be limited in what information we can share during this process.
dell/alienware please make the alienware m11x r4 many people want it back and you can bring people who liked the m11x back and gat more money also ypo can make it have the intel haswell a hd screen dual cooling fans for less noise heat and consumer satisfaction also make it have the optinon to choose windows 7 or 8 because many people dont like windows 8 also if you can make it have a reasonable price like 900-1000 also improve the video card to nvidia 780m if you can so please bring it back many people will apriciate it so plaese make it
Alienware m18x are one of the best laptop in the market , i will recommend to provide 3d displays like alienware m17x in 18x because m18x is much better in terms of performance than m17x and only the 3d display is missing in m18x , increase its price if it costs more .
The R3 is a fine computer and runs Windows 7 Ultimate x64 brilliantly.Sadly though, this 13 month old computer is not currently supported by Dell to run Windows 8 including Pro.It would be great if Dell could certify the Alienware Aurora R3 for use with Windows 8.Currently Windows 8 will hang on a R3 during warm boots. This can happen during and after install of Windows 8. The only work-around is to power the computer off and on where the computer boots into Windows 8 without incident.Thank-you.
The Alienware M11x was a smash hit, and extremely popular until it's recent demise. There was no other laptop that had it's CPU and GPC power, portability, and ruggedness.I want a replacement. All us M11x users do.So how about a M12x in the same chassis with: a 12", hopefully matte screen, even more hopefully a higher resolution than 1366x768Ivy Bridge low power CPUsnVidia GT650M We all know that "thin, light, ultra, and Airy" are trendy - but we don't want trendy. We want a portable tank.Status Update: This idea is now Under Review. Please be patient as we will be limited in what we can share during this process. Thank you for posting!
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
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.
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
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!
