    Not likely. The parts are not available. There is nothing to indicate they were "pulled" because of a problem... just none on hand to provide.

    It's probably merely something with the M17x R4 driver with the license for 3D missing. The license is only valid for systems that ship with an integrated 3D laptop display panel. The M18x never had the option of a built-in 3D display panel, so it was not provided free of charge. That's understandable, since Alienware never sold it as a "3D laptop" per se, although it is 100% 3D capable with the correct external display attached.
