    I was just going through my old HDD on my M18x R2 and came across this pic from when I was a slightly an Alienware fanboy. I was proud to say it back then. How times have changed.
    Pictured below is my M18x R2, M17x R3, M15x, M14x R2 and M11x R3. I still have the M18x and M17x. I wish that I never sold my M11x.

    That's a great collection! I love the old Nebula Red. I had a mint condition red M18x R2 but sold it a few month ago. Sellers remorse but I needed the $1100AU.
    Since my first purchase of my M17x R3 I've owned, an M11x R2, 2 x M11x R3, M14x R2, M15x, M17x R2, 2 x M18x R2, AW13, AW13 R2, AW14 and now waiting for a broken AW17 to arrive. Plus an X51 and a bunch of old Aurora R2-R4 desktops.
    I hate the grey/silver color they went with. Incredibly dull imo. At least the old M15x/M17x silver had some pop to it. I'm glad the new products have some color again.

    Looks like I am getting a Alienware X51 R2 to play with. Has i7 4790K 16GB RAM & GTX 960. First mod will be to throw in a GTX 980 LOL

    I'm typing using my X51 R1 right now. I think they are underrated machines. I know they don't overclock well because of the cooling but for such a small form factor they are fantastic. Mine has the 3770 and I put a GTX 1060 3GB in a little while back.

    I got mine a few years ago from an online auction website. It was dirt cheap because it wasn't working but once I opened her up I saw that some idiot had tried to jam the GPU in and cut a few cables in the process. Cost me about $30 to get it working again. Of course I had to give her a new matte white paint job because for some reason I can't leave my PC's stock color.
