The screen looks great, very high resolution, and the speakers are Klipsch ProMedia which is a high-end brand, and that means the sounds are crisp and clear. No need to worry about the sound not being loud enough as on some laptops, this will make the majority of music and movie fans very happy. I've had laptops which required externals speakers to be able to hear movie dialogue, so it's nice to see that some thought and effort went into the audio hardware. Includes 7.1 digital audio out using HDMI out connection or an S/PDIF optical port. The sound card is Creative's latest, Creative Sound Blaster Recon3Di High-Definition 5.1 Audio with THX TruStudio Pro Software, so you're getting the best of the best.
I bought mine with the nVidia 2GB GeForce GTX 660M GPU, which is just a month old, came out around the same time as this laptop was released, as well as Intel's 3rd gen i7 CPU.Read more ›
My Unit is:
-I7 3610QM with Intel 4000 Graphics (Ivy Bridge)
-ATI 7970M 2GB
-6GB 1600 Ram
-WD 750GB Hard Drive
-Intel 2230 Wireless with Bluetooth 4.0
-Sound Blaster Recon3Di
-Windows 7 Premium 64bit
-240W Slim PSU... It's big, but the height is about half of the typical high watt PSU's.
-7970M Graphics, 6GB Ram vice 4GB (4GB Dimm and 2GB Dimm)
-All the top end options you come to expect from Alienware
-Great Sound Blaster card
-Room to grow:
-2x hard drive docks--1 is used for the 750GB drive
-4x dimm slots for memory--2 are used in this config
-1x mSata slot for a specialized SSD used to boost performance or add space
-Screen is not 1080 as advertised. 1600x900 is not 1920x1080 (ie 1080P)
-Mine came double boxed :) (Outer box: Amazon.. inner box Dell Alien).
-DVD's for Windows OS & Resources. The Factory Restore must be created when you use the Respawn Application.
-Alien Mouse Pad
-Fold out diagram of the laptop
-Cloth Sleeve for shipping the laptop
***The Spec's are still great, but wished it was the 1080P***
The M17x R4 is arguably the best M17x revision that has ever been made, although the RGB-LED based R2 comes a close second for its spectacular screen. It is one of the first notebooks to sport the new Ivy-Bridge range of intel processors, the fastest consumer processors on the planet at a very affordable price range. The entry-level i7 3610QM is more powerful than some "Extreme edition" counterparts from previous generations, and is above-adequate in almost any situation. The 3720QM and 3820QM are available upgrades that not only boost your performance even further, they are also mildly overclockable. This new gen of processors will leave you future-proof, no doubt. The second important feature of this revision is the fact that it sports the NVIDIA GTX660M, GTX675M and GTX680M cards or the AMD RADEON 7970M card, depending on what you pick. The basic 660M itself is a very good card, but the AMD RADEON 7970M is arguably the most powerful mobile graphic card in the market, trumping many high-end desktop graphic cards as well. The GTX680M which just released is slightly more powerful and a lot more expensive (think twice about getting it).Read more ›

Wait...read through please ...there are two reviews that I've written ...the first isn't to good but it gets better.....
