Pros: Nice style Many custom OPtions
Cons: MAJOR OverHeating!Poor sound
Summary: Hello I am,or was ,a proud owner of Alienware51 M7700 laptop.I noticed right away out of Box when runningfor short Periods of time The left side of front left side of system ran extremely HOT.Too the point i could fry an eggon it. After about a year i turned it on to get a huge puff a smmoke.I Sent to alienware where i had video card replaced at a cost of 500$ to me.Nice warranty.Than i bought Targus coolPadand Babied this system ran only in AC enviroment Frequently cleaned and kept dust free.Well i got less than a year out of 2nd nividia 256 MB card.I strongly would have to recommend Not buying this laptop for gaming.The sound card is weak and system is unstable.Just runs too hot to be of use.I plan to sell as parts.If you search ebay or auction you will notice mine and many used models have a scortch Mark under video Card where heat has actually melted the upper cases plastic.Most say it is wear from wrist but if you lookit is always only on left side Under Video Card .Alienware unforunately doesn't want to make good on Parts there 14day part warranty.And nividia no longer even makes the Part after just over 2 years.Seeing i had 4k invested in this machine you can'timagine how ripped off i feel.PLesefeelfree toemail any question to me.
