Re: Want to buy ALIENWARE Area-51 M15x Laptop any opinions

Those M15x's have had dreadful problems in relation to handling the heat generated by the 8800M. They just can't; the laptop is too small and the cooling solution is too poorly designed, they've been overheating and downclocking their performance as a result.

There have been various bios fixes etc from the company, but personally I wouldn't touch one of those laptops with a ten-foot pole.
