Pros system is well built. excellent cableing.
Cons Customer support is the worst I have encountered. Sent us the wrong ram. Spent 2 hours getting the run around. Conflicting statments from support staff. They still have not refunded the money for the ram and it has been over 6 weeks. They say it will
Pros Top of the line components, cool design, excellent cooling system to take the torture. Good collection of software.
Cons All good components together, but still fails to make a difference over a $1870 Dell computer. The cooling system is great, but none that makes much of a difference in performance. Amazing price, sure to make your heart miss a couple of beats, still faili
Pros the reason your paying alot more over prebuilt computer is one this isnt the regular area 51 THIS IS RUNNING duel sli 6800ultra buying those 2 only is worth well over a grand and the motherboard with duel sli arent out yet. liquid cooling is pretty cheap
Cons the price otherwise it a good system
Pros Why in the world would you buy it? Because some people live in a house, play games, have parents, and have money. But Fez seems to be an orphan, is homeless, never made any money, and doesnt know what a computer game is! Anyone else should buy the p.c.
Cons look at pros.
Pros Good system overall.
Cons Extremely expensive, terrible shipping times, no updates during production.
Summary I can't knock the system. I have used my friends system, which is EXACTLY the same as the one I ordered, and I enjoyed it enough to purchase my own at @ $6000+. That was on 7/17/07.
It is now 9/17/07, and I still do not have my system. The website shows that my system is still on Phase 2 (billing) out of a total of 8 phases. I never recieve responses from the emails I send asking for upates. I still have no idea when my system is expected to ship.
Another friend of mine was going to order an Alienware along with me. At the last moment, he decided to build his own system. In less than a month, he had a system very comparable to the one I ordered for $3000 less overall.
I will never by an Alienware system again, regardless of the price or features.
