Update 10/1/12:
I removed the optical dvd-rw and put a hard drive caddy, and the caddy + hdd works fine. Below is the amazon link of the caddy I used:
Hard Drive Caddy Tray for Apple Unibody MacBook / MacBook Pro 13 15 17 SuperDrive (Replacement Only)

Now I have the performance of SSD and the capacity of HDD (128Gb Samsung 830 ssd + 500Gb 7200rpm Seagate hdd) :)

Update 9/25/12:
I upgraded my hdd to a Samsung 830 128gb SSD, and the WEI rating for the hard drive jumped from 5.9 to 7.9! This alien is now screaming with performance! Windows bootup and shutdown are very quick now. Right after logging in from cold start, I can open internet explorer and start browsing, with hdd, you have to wait for a few seconds and wait for windows to load up after logging in.

WEI rating:
Processor: 7.6
Memory: 7.6
Graphics: 7.1
Gaming Graphics: 7.1
Primary hard disk: 7.9

My next project is to remove the optical bay and put an hdd caddy together with the original hdd to get more storage space.

Original Review:
I got my M14x directly from Dell (for those who doesn't know, Alienware was acquired by Dell around 2006) so I can make more customization to my system. I also suggest ordering directly from Dell especially if you want to upgrade the processor to i7 instead of i5, and the screen to 900p instead of 720p.

i must say that i had searched on amazon for several days before deciding on this laptop, and i am glad i chose this one. I had always heard mixed reviews on alienware, but i've got to say, i don't understand how anyone who has ever used one could ever not be satisfied. I am a gamer and have installed both skyrim and minecraft, and it plays both at high settings without a hickup. As for the lit keyboard it was one of those things at first that i thought, "meh i could take it or leave it" but it is actually really cool to mess around with. i would have given this computer five stars but i took off a star for having to tweak the graphic settings at the start. The default that was set was all jacked up and everything that was supposed to be white was a pale blue, after a little tweaking with the contrast and gamma i was able to alleviate the problem. for anyone that wants a great computer for a decent price, don't rule this one out.

Great product. I have been a Mac user for a long time and I needed a good gamin PC. This one meets my expectations. Playing games like Skyrim or Deus ex look amazing. I only wish Amazon sold it with better specs and that the battery was easily removable.

I read a lot of reviews and a few people complained about the fan being loud. I don't notice it. I love the keyboard. The tapered keys are great for big and small hands and the rest pads feel like silk! I love the LED lighting and the sbility to change it when ever I want. The graphics card is great! It plays BF3 with no problems at all. I have it hooked up to a 27" monitor via the VGA connection. I'll be changing that as soon as I get a mini-display adapter to DVI-D adapter.

Although it's pretty fast on its own the SATA HD by itself could use a bump. For some reason I didn't have the option of adding the mSATA SSD when I bought mine a few weeks ago. I don't know why but I didn't. I would HIGHLY recommend it as the boot drive and the 7200rpm as your storage drive. Unless you want to spend the cash and go full SSD. I'm still deciding what I want to do now but I'll be using one of the two SSD options soon enough. The mSATA is cheaper than buying your own and installing it but if you do go that route, it's REAL easy to crack the case and add it later. As is a full SSD drive. And Dell/Alienware is REAL cool about it. They have walk-through on how to do it and they specifically let you that opening it doesn't void any part of the warranty.

There are two things I don't like about it. The lack of DVI connection is the first. I have to assume the VGA adapter is due to space contraints in the chassis but who uses VGA anymore? Also, I don't like the location of the power plug. It comes straight out the back. On Dell's Latitude systems they have it to one side of the back which makes it easier to get to and less likley to get bent if you're using this on your lap. Also, they went with the LED light power plug which in the past has been an issue with other lines of Dell laptop. It's had the tendance to be a stress point.

All in all this thing is great and I'd recommend it anyone looking for a small laptop with high compute and graphics capabilities!
