I was afraid this was turning into the Xbox Live thread lol.
I ordered the Alienware knowing what I was getting into. I spent countless hours reading reviews on the Sager 9860, the Dell XPS, and the Alienware 7700.
I went with the 7700 knowing full well the wait would be long. I already have another computer and I am satisfied playing World of Warcraft on low settings for the time being.
The reason I picked Alienware over the other models is because of the customer service. It is so hard to find good customer service out there, and I have been impressed with Alienware thus-far, and have talked to countless others who are happy with them. I have read the bad reviews (on all models) but I have to take the leap and get the computer I want.
The other reason (funny enough) was the price. People say Alienware is overpriced, and I'm wondering what crack they are smoking. The Sager 9860 and the Dell XPS were priced above the 7700. The Dell XPS only came close with a 400 dollar rebate, but I dont play the rebate game.
So anyway, this is mostly a response to the long wait posts. Live life for the moment, and stop thinking about the status of your AW. There are more things to do. If you stop thinking about it, you'll be surprised when it comes.
I personally am just going to chill, and let it comes when it comes. If something seems stuck in a phase, I'll call about it. Good luck everybody with ur lappys.
