    Well now that I have had it for a little while, I have noticed something funny. When I turn it on, it shuts back off and I have to re-press the power button sometimes twice. Not a really big deal, but still a possible problem.

    Yeah. I have a truck so no problem with snow. Laptop is great. Very wet here too.

    Lol. Lawn? We're lucky if they paint (hydro seed) the grass on. My yard is a rock pit. Being an I.T. pro, I have to force myself to use new tech. I usually just keep SkyDrive turned off. This has been one of the warmest Octobers in a while. We usually have snow by now. I can get around 8.1...

    First impressions. Really cool. Love the back-lit touchpad. Gets a little warm but runs very fast. Blu-Ray's work great. Looking forward to using it for gaming. Some work buddies are having a LAN on the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend. Screen is absolutely brilliant. Other than the NIC thing...

    I finally got it. I am installing games to it right now. Funny thing happens when I boot it up without a network cable plugged in. The NIC doesn't show up in device manager, but when I have it plugged in before booting, it will show up. Wireless shows up no matter what.

    Win 8 wrong choice

    Windows 8.1 will natively bring back the option to open then desktop on startup vs the "modern" interface. They dropped metro because of a copyright that a coffee company in Europe had. Thankfully, if you have 8.0, 8.1 is a free upgrade. - now Free

    Dell U2913WM Monitor

    For work, I was looking at ditching my two 24's (U2410s) and going with this monitor. I'm now looking at two U2713h monitors. I have multiple VMware console sessions open. For home, I have one LG 23" IPS LED screen. - now Free

    Alienware Docking Station

    Love this idea. They should keep the dock connector the same as the Latitude and Precision systems just to make it easier. They can still offer an Alienware version of the dock, but retain the backwards compatibility with the e-series dock.

    Hi all, I just yesterday (10-9-13) purchased my very first Alienware and am anxiously awaiting its arrival. It's a 14. It is expected to be delivered by 10-23. I'm not new to Dell, especially since I work at a university where we only use Dell PCs and servers. Hoping it comes soon.
