    Alienware 13 R3

    Price: 600 or trade

    Condition: Used

    Warranty: None

    Reason for sale: I hate Optimus.

    Item location: Arlington, Texas, U.S.

    Shipping: Local pickup, UPS
    International shipping: No
    Handling time: Ships within 2 business days of receiving cleared payment

    Feedback: NotebookReview Forum Feedback Thread, eBay Feedback Profile

    Specifications: Alienware 13 R3
    1080p60 panel
    i7 7700hq
    16GB 2666MhzCL15
    256GB NVME (OS)
    GTX 1060 6GB
    AX1650 (WiFi 6)
    Optional: 1TB SATA SSD

    Keyboard has been swapped for hangul/En keyset, can be replaced but is relative new and unused.

    Small crack on the I/O housing, 20 USD to replace but never felt the need.

    Relatively clean condition otherwise

    Functionally its a great machine, I am just too sensitive to Optimus and the laptop has sat for a year because of it.



    Looking to trade this more so than sell, but I am always up to offers.

    Looking for something in the Clevo family, but open to others.

    My only requirements is that its not BGA, and its 4th Generation or newer. The one exception is going to be the Alienware 15 R2/R3 with either 6820hk/7820hk and are capable of PEG.

    **Upon discovering the P150XX systems use the iGPU for the internal display, ruling those out as a desired option.

    Obviously based on whats being offered certain amounts of money may need to be exchanged, we can determine that if any serious inquiries come up.

    Otherwise if its got a socket, and an MXM slot, please feel free to send me a ping if you have interest in downsizing your system.

    Since my desired list of machines are kind of narrow, I will entertain outright purchases as well.


    Proof of ownership will be provided when I get home later today.

    Hey, I had a P150SM-a that I hadn't used in years if you're interested.

    The laptop sat on a desk for the entirety of its use. There are 2-3 small 1/2 inch scratches, (not sure whether they are really scratches though since they are not engraved... closer to small blemishes), no dents, chips, cracks, etc...

    I think Im going to pass on it, I was definitely interested but I cant seem to confirm if Optimus can be disabled on the laptop, its looking like all routes go through the iGPU.

    Thank you for the offer though!

    No, in P150EM, SM, SM-A you can't disable Optimus, all routes always go through the iGPU.
    I know only one case when P150EM modded to be dGPU driven, a Khenglish P150EM dGPU mod.

    I was hoping for otherwise but that does seem to be the case, my friend is quite sensitive in games (becomes sick and/or dizzy). Im looking to build a system where I can eliminate as many issues in terms of input lag / low FPS / that causes her symptoms.

    I'll soon have a CLEVO 375SM available, 4700MQ with GTX 860M in MXM socket, I was considering swapping Ranger components into it, but if it's of any interest to you, I'd be willing to part with it, with obvious equalisation with cash :) Also, I'm still waiting for the M4000M we've been talking before... :(

    I recently picked up an AGA on the cheap so I think that will alleviate her issues in terms of gaming / game dev until she decides to build herself a desktop.

    Thank you everyone for your inquiries and interest,

    mods please lock the thread at your earliest convenience.
