    It would be great to get some help from the media on this, It is putting me off ordering the m15x, to some people it seems like a small problem and to others it is big, I am one of those who thinks its a big deal. Each to there own.

    Thanks

    Ade.

    I'll report on this in the news bits and bring as much attention to this issue as possible.

    we have already talked about this, that damn power button does NOT Count. Distinct means different, stands out, unique. Passing that power button off as one of them is just plain rediculous.

    So are you keeping your order? Wasn't yesterday "D-Day" for them to get back to you? Sounds like if anything the issue has become more muddled with different answers coming from different people at Alienware.

    of course we think so, and of course they didn't originally mean it that way, but i'm sure their lawyers could argue that there are still 6 different ones including the power button if they had to

    what ur sayin also holds true...upto a certain extent...since everybody interprets laws differently
    here's my take on it:
    what they probably have in their defense is that they mention six 'distinct' 'zones'...and acording to general terms a distinct zone would mean an area which is clearly demarcated and distinguishable from another...
    power button = away from alien head = distinct
    and as long as they are delivering lighting options that can be played with on these zones, they still are one up no matter how ridiculous it may sound

    Thank you for this information, we now have proof that Alienware has changed their definition of "six lighting zones". I will include this in the bits as evidence to support the story.

    Question: Can we confirm that ALL models of the m15x are shipping without side lights? In other words, are the preconfigured ones also no longer shipping with the side lights? We know the configured ones don't have them.

    here is what I just got...

    Thanks, Tina. We keep up on forums, so I’m sure someone’s aware about what’s being posted out there. Honestly, these things are rumors. I can’t go out and squash them all, even though I wish I could. The information I provided to you was straight out of my supervisor’s mouth, and she’s the manager of the Corporate and Government Sales Dept. That’s what I have to stand by right now. So I will just wait and see..
    got it! with x9000!

    We need to get the blogs to pick this up. Could be interesting to have everyone questioning Alienware and their marketing tactics.

    Edit: Sent the info and link to this thread to Engadget. Maybe they'll write something about it.
