On April 2005 I have purchased a laptop from Alienware for $3800 and since then I regret about it. This story began when my laptop started to overheat as I used it to play games, then suddenly it shut down. After that, there was nothing I could do to turn it on. As my warranty expired, I had to pay Alienware another $170 so I can have a telephone support. It took about too weeks before they could receive the payment because every time I called them to check if the they got the money, they would say that sorry, you spoke to other representative and he did not save any bank details I gave them.

However, after they received the payment, all that I heard from the support was to press few buttons, which I did and the laptop turned on. But after few months it turned off again and did not want to turn on or anything. When I took it over too a workshop I was told that the mother board has burned, however I got it repaired fro about $100 (it was cheap, because my friend who worked in this shop helped me out).

After that, the laptop worked for another 3 months and died again, this time it was the video card which burned completely, I had to pay $680 to get the new one. Finally I received the video card, installed it and after a week the laptop died again, the motherboard fried again, however this time it is serious. That means that another $480 should be spent by me to make this piece of junk work.

The thing is that I am not the only one that Alienware had disappointed by producing very expensive computers which do not work properly and I still do not understand why they are not being sued! And the most important thing that I want to say is NEVER BUY ANYTHING FROM ALIENWARE, THEY ARE LIERS AND THEY PRODUCE FALTY EQUIPMENT.
