    Guys, its like my brother would be getting my m14xr2 soon , he will be bringing it for me from Canada
    Silly question but i want to be the one to unbox but after reading some posts , should i tell him to unbox and check if there is some fault in the machine ?
    and if i do tell him ,what all should i tell him to check and how will he know what fault there is ? :/ or should i just trust Dell and tell him to bring it as it is in the box.
    Ps- i live outside ,where we dont get alienwares so yeah !

    I think its slightly different - mine is just completely dead. Also, upon lifting the Alienware for the first time, there was a slight rattling sound, like something is loose inside the laptop. That might have been what caused it - a loose capacitor or whatnot.

    Apparently a technician is coming over tomorrow to fix it!
