We all know that the AW17 is a gaming grade machine and has some of the most ballsy mobile components available fitted inside it. And yet it is the coolest running laptop I nave ever owned. I had mine on for over 7 hours yesterday, finishing off with a few hours gaming on Far Cry 3 after I'd downloaded it. Yet despite that gaming session, the base of the machine was only luke warm :) Within 5 minutes of switching off, the machine was pretty much stone cold. How have Alienware made a laptop this powerful run so cool? I am well impressed by the design of this machine :)

Being nice and thick lets them put some decent cooling inside. On the other end of the scale is the Razer Blade which is super thin yet gets hot enough to fry an egg from most reviews I've read. I would assume that this is a big reason they decided to keep the bulky design.
