Re: Never again will I buy Alienware/dell products
This is interesting because I bought the Alienware 17R4 and my motherboard literally short circuited. I bought it last year in May. So not even 2 years old. I went with the 1 year warranty on it and didn't have the extra $300 to extend it when it ran out. I figured since it had been running well for a year I was in the clear, and I literally babied the machine kept it cool, never left it plugged in overnight, never left it on if I wasn't using it. But sure enough I woke up one morning and It wouldn't turn on. I think it's a pretty common problem with DELL laptops in general. I have a thread open but I don't think DELL is earnestly going to help me out with it. It's unfortunate to spend that kind of money just to end up getting duped by a faulty product. The only other option is to get nickel and dimed with expensive extended warranties because you know it's going to break.
