    I've posted these before over in the Alienware forum but I've only just noticed this section. I enjoy giving these older machines a fresh new look and I've never liked the grey paint scheme they went for years ago after the M17x and M18x.
    So far I've repainted a 13 R1 (Gloss CAT yellow), 13 R2 (Matte Black), and M17x R3 (Matte Pink and White). I am just about to start work on a 17 R1 (Gloss White). I'm definitely not a professional at this but it's all a bit of fun.
    Here are a few quick snapshots. 865300FD-26BA-48C4-B158-E51FA7EF3FC0.jpeg IMG_0363.jpg IMG_1512.JPG IMG_1048.JPG IMG_1050.JPG

    Looks fantastic from here!

    Those older Alienware designs still look great to me.

    Thanks for the feedback! I painted the old M17x pink and white for my wife as a surprise and she loves it.

    I just stripped my Alienware 17 down to barebones last night so hopefully I'll get to put some primer on her tonight before going Gloss white.

    I don't bother stripping the paint. What I meant was I pulled the machine apart. Removed the GPU, motherboard, storage, etc.
