I just got off the phone with a sales executive from Dell and have the most weird expression on my face right now. Read on to know why.
I am planning to buy a gaming notebook (more on that later) and had decided on the Alienware M17XR3 3D and was about to place my order in a few days. But why would God let me have bit of fun. So just days before I was going to place my order a sales executive from Dell called me to inform that I should look at some other notebook because Dell has stopped importing of the Alienware M17XR3 from Malaysia and has declared it End Of Life (EOL) or to put it in a relatively non technical term, discontinued.
A similar fate has been been met by the second of only two of the 17inch offering in notebooks by Dell, the XPS 17 3D. It has also gone End Of Life. And no one knows why, or atleast none are aren’t ready to tell, as of now.
Maybe the M17XR4 is on its way? Maybe. Maybe not. Maybe Dell is coming up with a new 17 inch laptop. Maybe. Maybe not. Hold your horses, it’s too early to speculate.
If you still wish to buy a Alienware M17 R3 or the XPS 17 3D then you can buy them through dealers. But mind that the machine will be pre-configured and you won’t be able to customize anything in it. Support will still be given to past and future purchases.
