Derrik Draven Posted February 6, 2005 Report Share Posted February 6, 2005 Think I'm going to take the plunge and spend my $$$ on a new laptop. High end only. I've been looking for quite some time (bout a year), and I THINK the Alienware Area51m 7700 is going to be the one for me. Yes, I know that they are a bit more expensive than some other manufacturers but, I really like the setup and, they seem to offer alot of support with their alienautopsy program and, alienrespawn recovery program. One HUGE deciding factor is that Alienware uses graphics card modules in their laptops, which are as easy to upgrade as a desktop pc. I like that, ALOT! I know that it wasn't very long ago that they (Alienware) were touting that they had just won the award for best customer service. ...that said, however; I've read so many very bad reviews of their systems and especially, their self-touted customer service, on http://www.epinions.com, that I'm still leary of buying from them. I realize that usually, it's pissed off customers that will take the time to write a negative review, moreso than satisfied customers taking time to write a good review. Hence, the reviews on many different websites tend to be biased against the companies since most of the people writing are pissed off for some reason or another. Can kind of give a skewered view. Still...I'd like to know what you guys, that own Alienwares, think of the company. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
