I've been doing research on a purchase of a 51M. I'm looking for a little insight and maybe this forum can help since I don't own a 51 yet. It appears that the older 51 was the same case as the Sager 5600 series. First question why would Alienware go to the new case design but suffer performance decline since no dual channel ram? It appears clear that the Sager 5600 units should outperform Alienware easily because of this. The 5600 design allowed for more options as well. IE dual battery, hard drives etc. Was it that they were losing sales to Sager and others? Why is Alienware not using the 9600 pro version? Why do you have to use two dimms instead of one with this newer unit? Can't I just buy 256 and save a ton of money and buy dimms elseware. Sorry for all the questions and rambling. Just very curious. Your thoughts!
