It's beyond amazing some of the shenanigans that we read about Alienware. If you are careful, the desktops might be fine, but I'm unconvinced they are truly into laptops.
Hello, I am interested in a fast computer that can be used for gaming and school. Anyone have an Alienware computer?
I've heard that the customer support is really bad from some reviews. On one review..I saw, "Great computer for 18 months." Does that mean the computer only lasts 18 months?
Thanks for your time,
Alienware started out as custom high-end systems. However, once they became popular it seems they couldn't keep the nubers up to thier old standards and quickly became just another system builder. They are now owned by Dell, so keeping that in mind you maybe under that direct support or thier own support via Alienware since its wan't too long ago brought out. As for laptops, Alienware never did make thier own they just brought from an Asian supplier and just loaded the s/w bundle, etc. and maybe tweaked it, so don't look for great differences compared to other vendors. Shop around and select what suits you, IMHO Alienware isn't that great anymore. You may want to look into Dell XPS systems.
