I recently purchased a very nicely cared for and maintained m5500 customized laptop case on ebay. I would love some advice on getting it rebuilt. I am wondering how much can be done with it as far as MOBO's, RAM, HD and the like are concerned. Normally I would just buy a new one but this one is special. Thanks for your advice.
I'm pretty sure motherboards for things like these are proprietary. You'll probably want to contact Alienware about getting the components that fit inside it, or at the very least their form factors so you can look elsewhere.
I don't think you've set a particularly easy task out for yourself.
First off. Thanks for all your sage advice. Anyone out there have any suggestions? I am looking for a laptop that is not terribly heavy but has enough power it won't be Internet road kill playing a game such as league.
