    (Personal Computers) Update 10/1/12:I removed the oaticpl dvd-rw and put a hard drive caddy, and the caddy + hdd works fine. Below is the amazon link of the caddy I used: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: 7.6Memory: 7.6Graphics: 7.1Gaming Graphics: 7.1Primary hard disk: 7.9My next project is to remove the oaticpl 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.Here are the specs that I got after customization:- Intel Core i7-3610- 900p (1600 900) High Def+ screen- Killer wireless-N 1202- 6gb DDR3 1600Mhz- 500gb 7200rpm- 1gb GT 650M DDR5- Personalized Nameplate Trigger- Nebula RedWith these specs compared to Amazon (upgraded processor, screen and wireless card, but downgraded graphics from 2gb to 1gb), I still got mine cheaper. You have to talk/chat to a Dell sales rep to get discounts.. To the review:Case: Let’s admit it, this is one of the reason why we’re buying an Alienware system. The unique design is one of the trademarks of Alienware system, be it notebook or desktop. This is my very first alienware system, and I really like it. First look and feel after opening the box is awesome! Even though most parts are plastic, the quality is top notch. Quality and workmanship is hardly matched. The weight is 6.45 lbs and the height is 1.5 in, which is heavy and thick for a 14 notebook, but again, quality is top notch. No problem opening the lid with one hand, thanks to the heavy base unit. The rubbery, gummed surface is really very good, I prefer it than a very shiny plastic surface.Processor: Intel Core i5-3210 IVY bridge, Intel’s third-generation CPUs. If you’ll use the laptop more into gaming, this processor is more than enough to play. You won’t get more FPS if you upgrade to an i7. i7 is like an icing on top of a cake. However, if you will use it other than gaming, like video encoding or other cpu intensive task, you will get the benefits of quad core i7.Memory: 6gb DDR3 1600Mhz For most users, 6gb is a plenty amount of memory. Other’s would like additional ram. It is very easy to upgrade to 8gb or 16gb (16gb nowadays are also cheap and will cost you less than $100).Graphics: Geforce GT 650M 2GB DDR5 The performance level of this graphics card reaches somewhere in the level of the previous high end cards like Geforce GTX 460M and GTX 560M. There’s a 1gb and 2gb version if your buying directly from Dell, some will argue that the 2gb is better, some will say that there’s no difference. If you got the extra money, go for the 2gb, if your on a budget, go for the 1gb.Storage: 500gb 7200rpm You could actually feel the difference of 7200rpm from 5400rpm drives. Now if you want more performance and like a fast storage, you can upgrade to SSD. Once upgraded to SSD, this gaming laptop will surely scream.Wireless connectivity: Intel Centrino 2230 This is 2 2, single band, 802.11b/g/n wifi + bluetooth 4.0. 2 2 means maximum speed you can get is 300Mbps (assuming you also have a router that supports 2 2 or 3 3). Single band means it uses 2.4ghz (If it’s dual band, you can use either 2.4ghz or 5ghz) If you live in an apartment with plenty of wifi signals, you will benefit using 5ghz since it’s not crowded, due to most routers only support 2.4ghz. I upgraded mine to killer wireless-n 1202, which can also do 2 2 and bluetooth 4.0, but supports dual band.Optical drive: Slot-load dual layer dvdrw If you buy directly from Dell, there’s an option to upgrade for a blu-ray drive (read-only). My suggestion, if you watch plenty of bluray movies, then go for the bluray drive. If not, and your the type of user that don’t use the dvd drive, then you can buy the hdd caddy to put a

    I have seen that car insurance organizations know the cars and trucks which are prone to accidents along with risks. In addition they know what types of cars are given to higher risk plus the higher risk they’ve already the higher the premium rate. Understanding the straightforward basics connected with car insurance will let you choose the right types of insurance policy that may take care of your wants in case you happen to be involved in an accident. Appreciate your sharing the particular ideas on your blog.
