    I absolutely love this computer. I was lucky enough to find this workstation as an "Open Box" sale. There is nothing that I can say bad about this computer. The only downfall, and its expected, is the weight. This laptop is definitely not designed for travelling, but if you are looking for power, this is your new best friend.

    Had the computer for a brief time during which the screen would often black out & need to be manually restarted. While loading a game, the deciding factor to return the computer was when it began to make a terrible sustained screeching noise, again requiring to be shut down manually. A new computer should not have such issues! Returned it!!

    The hardware specs are unreal. Some people feel overwhelmed with the dimensions and weight of this device but it’s for the good - durability and most importantly air circulation are key. It literally handles any game at full settings without any hiccups and reasonable FPS.

    Google screen issues with this model before you buy. I got a defective one. Never seen a panel with so much light bleed. Not even acceptable for a $500 computer let along an $1,800 one. Very disappointing. Returned same day. Best Buy had a single employee working returns during the busy holiday season. Waited a very long time for help.

    Like other reviewer have said, it's heavy. However, I knew this before purchasing so no big surprise to me. This laptop will play almost any game at max settings perfectly fine with high FPS. I use it for work and gaming which replaced my desktop with ease. I have zero regrets on this one....love the laptop !

    We got this for my son who loves it, it has a fast vid card and it looks fantastic! It was last years model, but that's fine it was cheaper. Seems to fly through apps and games. Glowing keybopard and touch pad, very cool look to it that you can adjust. Silly stuff, but my son really likes it.

    This computer is the best I've ever owned. It is a bit heavy.. but for what it contains inside.. it's worth it. The screen is bright and crisp, and the computer is fast! I don't use for gaming but for coding, programming, and software design. Works great for dual booting Linux as well.

    Just got the Alienware a few months ago and it does everything I need it to do..yes it’s heavy, but if you did your research you would’ve already known that it was going to be. I really don’t use it for gaming, but my son does and loves playing Fortnite on it. Overall very happy with my purchase.

    Love it! However it's larger than 15" Cases

    I love this laptop, just as much as the R2 I had before. The only issue I have is the size is larger than standard 15" which doesn't let it fit in my bag. However, that's not a big deal. Can't really go wrong with a 1070 on the laptop with dedicated RAM. The NVME hard drive is nice and fast as well.

    Looks evilly sleek. The backlit keyboard and trim adds to the gaming performance. All games load and play fast, little to no latency. Bright screen with noticeably richer and deeper colors. It brought my SIMS to life! The keyboard feels comfortable. Overall, a very powerful addition to my gaming.

    My tower desktop finally gave up one too many times, and decided it was enough. I needed something for photo and video editing and was looking to switch to a laptop. This had all the right specs, so picked it up. Couldn't be more pleased. The screen is great too. Very happy with the purchase.

    I always wanted an alienware product, years ago they were too expensive. Well worth the wait. Now that they are more competitively priced, I made the jump. Great laptop. Only downside is it is heavy. But that's the price you pay for awesome performance and great graphics. Well worth the price.

    This thing is incredible, not only is this laptop fast and able to play the games I throw at it. I’ve been using this as my desktop replacement and it has been serving me well. I’ve gotten lots of compliments on the all the lights this thing has! To boot you can even change the colours of the lights!

    I bought this product for my son. He uses it at home and in college. I was nervous about the price at first until I saw what this computer can do. I compared it to other brands and it stood high above them all. Great price for all that technology.

    The configurations brought me to the conclusion to buy it, however, it didn't fulfill my expectations. Freezes a few times a week, and fans get really loud at moderate use. However, the battery life was more than I expected and gaming is as promised!

    This laptop is a great laptop that has all the bells and whistles. Its fot a very large batter lasting 5 hours during normal non gaming use. You can how ever get a much better brand for a lot cheaper. I would say only get this if you can find a very steep discount like I did.

    I absolutely love this machine, it handles everything I throw at it no problem, has room for extra storage. The only downside is the battery is only like 2 to 3 hours under full load but that's to be expected out of a gaming machine imo

    I have access to three wireless networks. From the beginning I could not get a good connection to any of them. Tech support couldn't help. This was to replace a win 7 laptop that I never had problems connecting to the internet with. First and last time I buy a Dell computer.
