    It was good impression with the FHD screen on my old Alienware 14, I hope the Alienware 13 may delivery a same or better FHD screen quality with the reasonable price :D.
    However, in fact, I always play game on my external display because I prefer bigger screen for better experience. Therefore, the option with HD screen to save money for upgrading SSD is a good considered.
    I am telling that because the price of this new beast is quite expensive....$1,600 for standard configuration (I5, HD, 8GB, and 1TB HDD 5400rpm) in Australia.

    Hello All

    Has any one disassembled there Alienware 13 yet?

    I just wanted confirmation that the CPU can not be upgraded on this model as it uses the FCBGA1168 socket.. (Which is soldered on to the motherboard...):mad::(

    Thanks

    Hello guys,

    I Just registered to this forum because im thinking of buying the Alienware 13. I currently have a macbook air but im not satisfied with its display.
    Now im wondering if the 1080 display on the alienware 13 is a big step up compared to the air ?
    Also i would like to hear from some people who have the alienware 13, how is the build quality ? does it feel like a quality product or more like a cheap made laptop ?

    Thanks in advance guys !
