I like the look of my 14 but I love the older style. I haven't seen an 18 up close though. They kept the glossy screen on the 18 though right? I love the gloss!

I must admit I like the older revisions like the M17xR4 and the M18xR2 than the new models. I just think the grills on the front of the older models make them look more spacey and stealthy but that's just my opinion. But I like your specs and welcome to the club

the aw14 and 17 both do not have a gloss screen. the 18 is the only new one to have a glossy screen. the 18 is a bloody monster up close!

^ You're wrong! The 17 has the option of the 3D screen, which is glossy. I know that, because I own one :)

1) 4th Generation Intel Core i7-4930MX Processor (Overlocked, 8MB Cache, up to 4.3GHz w/ Turbo Boost) but never runs near that because our bios sucks.

2) 32GB Dual Channel DDR3L at 1600MHz

3) Dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M with 4GB GDDR5 - NVIDIA SLI Enabled

4) 750GB 7200RPM SATA 3Gb/s data drive

5) two 512 GB Samsung Pro Series SSD drives in raid 0 (best upgrade i made to the machine)

6) Slot-Loading Dual Layer Blu-ray Reader (BD-ROM, DVDRW, CD-RW)

7) 18.4 inch (467.36mm) WLED FHD (1920 X 1080) TrueLife Display


Everything is running at stock speeds because of the messed up bios i got sick of rebooting my machine when using software to overclock the CPU. Even my video cards are ran at stock speed. And believe it or not, at stock speeds it still crushes any game i throw at it. wonder how it would do overclocked.

1. 4th Generation Intel Core i7-4900MQ CPU@4.1Ghz (Runs ALL cores at 4.1Ghz)
2. Corsair Vengeance 16GB RAM@1866Mhz 10,10,10,28
3. Dual Nvidia GTX 780M SLI Enabled
4. Samsung 840 EVO 250GB + Samsung 840 EVO 250GB mSATA (Raid 0) + Western Digital Scorpio Black 750GB

Bios does suck but cant blame Dell as running overclocks does generate a lot of heat which will kill the cpu etc eventually,but they could have done a better job with the fan profiles. There are ways around this........:D

What I was saying was dual as in two cards - SLI as in running together not two gpus on one card. Was praising his set up that was all. Excuse me.
