New M14x R2 i7-3840QM 16GB

So as I see most of you guys have more than one AW system, my wife surprised me with a birthday present which should be delivered in the next couple of days...

Specs

M14x R2
i7-3840QM
16GB RAM
240GB mSATA
1TB HDD
2GB nVidia GT 650M
HD+ Killer 1202 WiFi

Should be sweet!
 
Make sure you update the Killer wifi drivers from the Dell site and not the Killer website. For some reason it disables the adapter on boot until you remove it, wipe the software using the tool provided on their site, then do a fresh install of the wifi drivers from the Dell site.

Dealt with that nightmare for four days before I figured a way out of that vicious circle. ;)

Thanks for the tip! Will do tonight!

Now Matthew that will be your third M11x?! How can you have AW laptops? One for each room?

I don't think I'll be getting one anytime soon. They don't come up very often. When I originally ordered my M11x R3 I asked for a red one but they were all gone and the M11x was being discontinued so no more were being made. I always felt like it was my destiny to have one so I will keep trying. :D
 
I was playing around with my new purchase and everything was running really dim and slow...
After deleting drivers, installing new ones both from the Dell and nVidia site but nothing doing.
Windows 8 was doing my head in!!
So I discovered in the driver manager that the intel HD4000 had been disabled!
So everything works fine now and this is a little beast of a machine!!
