    You'll understand that if we're here, it's because we're proud of our not-so-perfect G-series Asus. You'll get a more receptive audience here:
    Asus G74SX-DH73-3D, Intel® Core™ i7-2670QM, Windows® 7 Home Premium, 64-bit - 14gb of RAM,
    Clean install on 128gb Crucial M4 SSD + 750gb WD 7200 rpm HDD for storage,
    Blu-ray™ ROM/DVD±RW combo drive, 3 GB (dedicated) NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 560M graphics, driver v. 285.62, 3D Capable.
    BIOS ver 203

If a better Alienware laptop is available to you at the same price, you should go with that.
    +1! true!

    the g74 appeared during spring, and in august it saw a little spec up! (better CPU, more RAM, and backpack and mouse) (same GPU beacuse it cannot be exchanged and the performance to the 570m is the same.

    IMHO, asus will deliver the g75 with another GPU and new i7s.
    But generally speaking for the price you won't get any other contender like Clevo or MSI.

    P.S. Here in portugal de Mx18x (which is the only model currently on sale) is worse on everything! CPU, RAM, GPU the same. And they ask for 2200eur! Mine was 1700.

    What is Alienware support like? Do they issue BIOS"s when needed? Have they ever recalled a pc because a major part was faulty; ie touchpad, or something not easily replaced by the user? Just curious...

    Alienware is just a subsidiary of Dell, isn't it? I wonder if they share support resources.....


    I've never heard of ANY laptop recalled for bad design, crappy parts, or lack of functionality. Really. The only recalls I've ever seen are for batteries or power transformers that are determined to present a potential fire risk. (Even Apple had to recall a battery once.)

    So apparently, their motto for customers should be "Whatever doesn't kill you, will make you stronger."

    "Whatever doesn't kill you, will make us richer; even if you can't do anything else with it unless you use peripherals."

    74 would be in fact an awesome doorstop in terms of shape,size and weight! Gotta see it for myself in 5 years or something...

    I think it's the same Mx18x (oldish hardware) was sold by a local retailer here too with 2700€ :P

    First you say that they are equally tagged in terms of price, now you're telling us that it's much more cheaper than Asus? Right...
