    My new Alienware M18X is here - comparison to M17X, pictures, benchmarks

    Ok, finally it is here. I missed delivery on Saturday and thought I would be getting it yesterday but they delivered it today.

    I am pretty damn happy I went with the red, it looks awesome. The M17X is black and looks boring in comparison. The M18X feels higher quality with its aluminum case, is a little bit heavier but no big deal. Here are the initial pictures:

    (Benchmarks and detailed comparison coming as soon as I get it set up)

    That thing is ginormous. They might as well call it a desktop.

    First major difference, speakers on the M18X are much better. Sound is way cleaner!

    Haven't played anything yet but its running cool to the touch right now.

    I'm probably going to order up Crysis 2 in a bit, not sure what else.

    Just enjoying the sound quality right now, need to upgrade my ram and then I'll run a benchmark.

    Very nice. When they make a newer and much better one, I'll buy it just to mess with you.
    And i'll play the $#@! out of that thing. Looks like a lot of fun. Would you make a video of it?

    What kind of video do you want? Startup? Gaming?

    I don't think they are going to make one better than this... just upgrade this chassis. And when new videocards / processors come out I will buy them and upgrade Click here to enlarge
