I ordered my Sentia on the 25th and it is still in Phase 1. because of lack of funds, I paid half and financed the other half with the only finance company that would approve me. (Alienware Credit) Interest is very high, but there is the 6 months to pay without getting hit with the interest rates.
Although this forum is geared towards the high graphics gamer crowd, I will post my review and pictures for those who happened to stumble upon this place looking for info on the Sentia. There are no reviews, and not much info outside the Alienware site for the Sentia.
I will admit that getting the Gamer laptop was a temptation. So much that I even collected and saved the pictures posted here. But after weighing my options and considering what I need from the laptop for, the Sentia is a good choice. For gaming and heavier graphics, my desktop will do.
This is what I ordered:
