So, I am not really happy with alienware's performance in building my laptop. I expected to wait, but as other people on this forum with a similiar configurations see phrase 5 and all the way to phrase 10, I beginning to wonder what is really happening. I shouldnt have to call them everyday to figure out if my computer is going to built that day. Well, I have decided that if it doesnt get built before fri, I will most, likely just cancel and buy an ASUS.
Gmanater..sorry to hear that..but on the bright side, you're not one of them who has been waiting 4+ weeks or even 4+ months
everything is custom, so it takes time, especially when parts are on backorder. I think if you can't wait till past friday, alienware isn't for you. everyone who has an alienware usually needs patience through these phases i ordered a m5550 with the same parts as you before you, and mine still hasn't arrived... these things always take time
