    Good deal. This machine performs and seems so sturdy, almost indestructible. Great price vs performance.

    I got this unit on sale for 1550, and its the nicest computer ive owned. Its very heavy at almost 8lbs, but I never see dips in performance, its got good battery life, fun rgb customization. Its sturdy, and surprisingly quiet

    I love this laptop. It can handle any game I throw at it and I like the customizable colors with alienfx. It is sturdy. It feels premium (it's heavy for a laptop). Great build quality and doesn't overheat.

    Solid performer with premium build feel

    The two things that impress me most about this laptop are the solid construction feel - no body flex at all, and how well behaved the temps are in tortuous benchmarks like furmark. The chassis lights are gaudy, but can be turned off. A side effect of the premium feel and cooling is that this laptop feels oversized, and the bezels are comically big. As far as "gamer" focused styling goes, I still find it to be among the better ones with the lighting disabled. If you want a sleeker looking laptop that can still 1080p with high settings, look at the MSI stealth thin or razer blade 15. They were my top choices over this but this was on clearance.

    Blazing speed, very fast! Heavy and sturdy. Worth every penny. Cool design, well lit. Keyboard has a great feel. Works well with 3d vector modeling and rendering.

    I started off with a MSI GS63VR STEALTH-252 which I did like. My issue with that laptop was I didnt feel overtime the computer was made sturdy enough for me and the speakers were just plain bad. I decided to exchange is for this Alienware. It is pricey but the difference is noticeable in build and just overall feel and quality. PROS- Excellent vibrant screen sturdy durable build Can run anything. Excellent spekers im 44 and it doesnt look like im 1a yr 15 old -(looks classy) Cons- Expensive Heavy compared to the MSI 15'6 Have to DL drivers for the network to stop WiFi connection issues. Overall very happy with this laptop! Love it and worth the extra money.

    This thing is a beast. You can do anything goes you need or want on it. I use it for school, video editing, games (highest settings), and Windows Mixed Reality (WMR). The computer is quiet as it cools, starts quickly, and feels very durable. I also own an MSI Steel series, and an ROG. After buying this Alienware, I will never go back. It's Alienware all the way. Buy it. You won't be sorry

    Nearly Perfect.

    Perfect for a poweruser, performs all tasks exceptionally well, and is much more portable than the 17. The matte screen is slightly low brightness but is pretty good to look and has barely any faults. The fans get a bit loud when under pressure but the speakers more than cover it up, and the vents are pretty effective. Keyboard feels really sturdy and can survive a beating. Not very comfortable to use it on your lap for extended times. Ive only played a few fps and racing games and the 1070 has been sailing smoothly even at high settings. AlienFx is bloody amazing. The lighting trackpad looks crazy. Similiar specs at a substantially lower cost are available from ASUS and MSI, but they compromise slightly in build quality and hugely in terms of premium looks.

    I received this computer as a gift for Christmas. It definitely has some weight to it but it is sturdy and constructed well. It runs perfect and I like how well the software specific to Alienware doesn't bog the computer down. As soon as I got the computer I ran a VR benchmark on it and was surprised to see how well it performed. Definitely as close to a future proof computer as you can get. The only con I would give this laptop is the fan noise while intense gaming and the weight of the laptop but that is only if you are very picky. All of the lights you can see in the photo can be individually changed to multiple color types. The face recognition also works very well. I haven't had a single problem with this laptop and am very pleased with everything it has to offer. It handles every game I throw at it on max settings so far, the most intensive game being Skyrim fully modded for 4k and it runs smooth.

    Fast Machine - Slow Boot - No O.C.

    Noise is not too loud. Good graphics, ram. It has display port and HDMI...(great if you are into VR AND have a regular monitor). My only concern is seeming bios issues ... Mine will not go to sleep no matter the settings. Very long boot up time and the Tobii eye tracker seems to forget what it is every now and again. It forgot my HDD boot preferences. This processor has no custom overclock options, it seems. I will check my support options on the bios thing and may perform a reset while keeping my goodies. I replaced the HDD with SSD. It would be great if I were not nervous about the BIOS behavior. Nice gamer color schemes if desired...while not looking like a kid's laptop. Good construction.
