Hi Guys,

I got a quote from Dell Ireland yesterday. I went to order it today and was told that the 750GB HDD is now end of life and been replaced with a 1TB HDD @ 5400rpm instead. Alternatively the base system has a 500GB Hybrid drive.
Has any one else experienced this?

Also, I was told that the 8GB RAM is end of life as well. The 2 options are now 6GB @ 1600mhz or 16GB @ 1600mhz both DDR3L

Also, there's a new Graphics card on alienware.ie and also included in the new quote I received which is the
NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 750M with 2GB GDDR5

Does anyone have any information on this GPU? I can't find any info. It's not even list on nVidia's website so I'm really confused.


Thanks,
Sch3cter :)

PS These are the 3 GPU offers on alienware.ie

NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 765M with 2GB GDDR5 [add € 199.99 or €11/month-1]

NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 750M with 1GB GDDR5 [Included in Price]
NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 750M with 2GB GDDR5 [add € 125.00 or €7/month-1]

I am guessing base clock is set a little higher in the GTX as well as the additional 1Gb of GDDR5. IMHO I would not pay the 125 for an extra gig of gddr5 and a few extra clocks when i could purchase a considerably more powerful GPU for 200. I ordered my 14 with the GTX 765m and it's worth every penny.
