Hey all,

I just ordered an x51 that should arrive in a couple weeks. And I'm wondering just how much bloatware is in the existing Windows install. Should I bother doing a clean install before I start using it, or just start playing games right out of the box?

Thanks!

Alienware are usually pretty well known for not having much bloatware (if any) in their systems. You should be right to get started straight out of the box!

Good luck and welcome to AWO!

Almost everyone here has reported no bloatware.
There are some alienware specific utilities re-installed. But only a couple.
They are pretty good, and quite useful.
