just a quick post here to get a little feedback. I got a new alienware laptop, m17x r3 with a ati 6970m and 2630qm intel at the very end of 2011 beging of 2012. now i will say i got a brand new laptop at almost half price due to certain circumstances. But the whole overpriced issue not being a factor in my purchase, are they really bad laptops like i see everyone bashing on online post and forums??? I personally have been amazed with mine. no problems, performs flawlessly. i run minecraft with a 256 res texture pack and get 120 130 fps easy, run almost all other games like mw3, saints row, skyrim at steady 60fps and stuff super intense like crysis 2 or battle field 3 at 45 50 fps, not overclocked. did i get just get lucky and got a well made one out of a thousand bad, or perhaps because it was the premeir line they put out to showcase the 6970m when it first dropped. Just wondering because i see alota hatters out there.
