Hi all,

After having an Alienware M17x R4 which I loved but had to sell I've decided it's time for an M18x R2. I'm not keen on the new Alienware models which alao have soldered GPU and CPU but anyway point being is this price good?

Alienware M18x R2 with:

Intel I7 3940XM
Samsung Pro 500GB SSD
24GB DDR3 RAM
Nvidia GTX 970M 6GB
Blu Ray drive

For the above its £1260?

My opinion.. I think its fine but id like others.

Please note I don't want this to turn into other topics such as having a desktop for gaming and saving money yada yada I just want to know is that price to that spec good?

Thank you for your input, last time I purchased an Alienware I loved it that being the 17x r4.. I've seen cheaper laptops with same specs but I don't know.. It's like Apple.. Some people just pay more for the same thing and I'm one of those who just like Alienwares unfortunately

I have had an Alienware M18x R2 since October 2012 and It's wonderful. The only problem I ever had was my own fault. I put in a third HD (SSD) and damaged the interposer cable. Took 2 weeks and £40 inc import duty from the Good Old US of A (bless them), and I was a bit more cautious with that one.
Still runs MMORPGs at 100fps.
It cost a fortune to buy, but it is still head and shoulders above 95% of laptops. Probably a fair few desktops, too.
