    Anyone know if AlienRespawn works with the new Alienware's, only reason for asking is that I generally like to restore to the factory image every few months to keep things nice and clean on the laptop, I can use the inbuilt Windows reset option but I believe this will clear everything except for the Windows installation which will mean I will need to install all of the other software and drivers again.

    I used to use AlienRespawn on an M13X and M17X and it was great, but after downloading it an hour or so ago and taking a backup, it failed and now says the factory image no longer exists. I'm not so worried about this particular laptop as it is going back to Dell and getting a new one in the next couple of weeks, it would be really good to know how I can restore back to factory settings in future though and when and how you take a copy of the image.

    Thanks

    That's what it seems. Its like the touchpad is the same color and touch as the metal lid.

    The one I received today has a grey colored touchpad, not silver like the lid, it was built late December, it is pretty smooth to the touch though

    Ran Firestrike, Fans stayed very quiet during the test. Max temps on cpu were 69, 67 69 65. Not bad. Playing around with the laptop I did notice that the touchpad had a gap on the top from the frame and if you press on the touch pad it bows down. I wonder if they forgot a screw or a clip on it. Here is firestrike.
