Go up one level in this thread

I would never recommend alienware. I called them up last week to get a price
quote  on a replacement part. IF something breaks you're screwed, they dont sell
replacement parts and it's proprietary. The only way to get it fixed is to buy a
new warantee (if allowed) so they and only they can fix it. There are 3rd party
companies they refer you to, but who wants to buy aftermarket products for a
proprietary computer. *shrug*

Guess Alienware left a bad taste in my mouth.. just my oppinion.
