    I hear ya, man. I ordered a replacement battery for an mp3 player, and it's been 2 months and I still haven't seen it yet. I sent the etailer an email yesterday, saying that if they can't ship my product this week, then they need to refund my money. I've sent 2 more emails to them, and they at least have answered them, but it's just been a horrible experience (which I let them know). Hopefully they sort this out now.

    This is just a battery in my case, so I can't imagine how frustrated you are considering you're waiting for a nice notebook. I take it there's no package tracking?

    Unfortunately not. I am still waiting. 25 days now. They said it may take 6 weeks for it to come. I wish I had remembered to ask them to ship it priority mail. At least then it would have made it in less than 10 days. So here I wait.

    ITS HERE ITS HERE!!!!!

    And BOY is it AWSOME. It is a monster. It is late, and I gotta get some sleep for work, but I did run 3DMARK 03 and scored 11,386. I ran 3DMARK 05 and scored 5090.

    I am totally happy with it so far. I tried to add my second hard drive, but dont have a jumper for it, so I gotta get that tommorow. It would not detect the second. The Alienware site says that I have to have the jumper on the second hard drive set to slave, and have it in the upper position. I had all but the jumper and dont have a jumper for a 2.5 inch hard drive, so I gotta hit the store. Just wanted to pass on my glorious news!!

    Jumper is nothing but the bridge between two pins, you can do one yourself or check some old hardware you might have lying around. Jumpers are found for example on hard disk and motherboards and are not always used, eg manufacturer might add a jumper or two for some extra funcionality to be enabled. Those are usually a little bit bigger the the ones used on 2.5 inch drives but they will fit.

    BTW did boat have engine .

    About time!!! I'd love to see some picks... maybe some shots of the cooling solution, and those dual HDD bays!

    Ok, here is a couple pics. I have to work tommorow again, so I dont have alot of time to play with it yet, but I did get the hard drive installed (second one) and a couple games. It is AWESOME. Anyway here are some pictures.

    I cheated on the hard drive picture and used one from on line.

    By the way, what does BTW stand for?

    It is better to be tried by 12, than carried by 6.

    Next time I open it up, I will take pics. I didnt think to take pics when I took some of the covers off. She is sweeth though!!!! I thought I had a problem with HL2, but come to find out, Steam just had a big release last month that messed things up. When played onmy main system, it ran smooth as silk on max settings. And after I finally tried it on main, I realized it was a steam/valve/HL2 problem. Not the laptop. Got new drivers on both main and Alienware and things are a little choppy in HL2 on both systems, but runs. Hell, I beat the game several months back so no big deal. Farcry, Doom 3, Joint Operations and Area-51 all run smooth as hell. I am lovin' it.
