Best Buy Customer Reviews

Best Laptop to date Posted by: from: on People who gave this laptop a bad review did not give any valid reasons. This is by far the best laptop that I have owned after the Asus G75 brand. I waited 30 days to fully use this laptop before giving my honest review. The GOOD: 1. The laptop comes with 6 hour battery life - you can't get that on most 17 inch laptops like MSI, Asus, and CyberPower. 2. The laptop has a graphics amplifier port to power a desktop grade graphics card for future upgrades - meaning you don't need to buy a new laptop for a long while. 3. The keyboard lighting is awesome and a plus to have. 4. I can also dual boot Linux OS and use VMware Workstation for work running 3 to 4 VM's at once without impacting overall laptop performance on just 8GB of RAM - Thanks for the Intel i7 Skylake CPU. 5. The sound card and speakers a simply amazing. ROOM for Improvements: 1. The fan is louder than the Asus G75 when doing heavy graphics. 2. Alienware brand laptop always cost a little more than other brands. 3. Do not upgrade the wireless network drivers for now - It broke and I had to roll back. 4. Another USB port would of been nice instead of just having 3 ports. 5. The slot to buy a cable lock is too hard to find one that fits - Dell made it too proprietary. Overall, this is the best laptop yet and I am glad I spent my hard earn money on it. I think I will stick with Alienware brands going forward and because of the graphics amplifier, I might not have to buy another laptop again until at least 5 more years.

Yes it has the amplifier port and USB C Posted by: from: on The store didn't stock it so I was worried that it didn't have the video amplifier port and the USB C port. The description and specs do mention either one. I ordered anyways with the intent of returning it if it didn't have those options. This model came with both ports. I couldn't be happier with this gaming monster.

Definitely better than 13"Alienware Posted by: from: on So far so good...This laptop has been up to my expectations. The reason for dropped 1 star is packaging of product is bad, I received unit that snap on one side of display is open in transportation. I had it to snap it together. Never seen that before on any expensive product like this. I bought a Alienware 13" model and returned it, tired of blue screens, none on this one so far. After a day of using it for development, Gaming & general usage it seems to be doing all of them with ease. It is a beast of a laptop as you would expect. Screen back light seems to be just fine on mine. If you read online bleeding seems to be a common problem on Alienware's. It does get hot after playing game for only 10-15 minutes. Scrolling gets locked up every now and then. Sound is decent. Alien FX is really cool... Overall impressed so far. Will update after a few more days of usage

Great gaming laptop Posted by: from: on I always had cherished a dream to become a proud owner of Alienware. When my school-going son first told me few months ago about this wonderful gaming gadget, I was so pleasingly surprised to realize that we both share a common dream and desire. On that day, I decided to buy Alienware for my son. He actually pushed my dream into reality. And what a reality it really is! It's a wonderfully cool laptop. Our entire family is in love with Alienware.

Great Laptop Posted by: from: on This laptop is awesome!! I got it for a great price and it runs very smoothly. I would buy over any laptop I've ever had. It's a little pricey but not compared to some I've seen.

Computer is great but.... Posted by: from: on This computer as a whole blew my mind. I have never owned an actual gaming laptop or desk top. I have built a few decent gaming desk tops, but nothing are like this computer. However!!!!!! Windows 10 has destroyed all capabilities of this power house. In the past 24 hours (at time of writing), I have had approximately 6 "critical" errors requiring a restart. Just something to consider before you buy. At this time I would not recommend this to anyone, for the mere fact that when you buy a computer you expect it to work.
