Needless to say, this is military only. Go us!

I was able to join but waiting to pull the trigger until I get a response being in the US. Intent can be such an ugly word.

Thumbs up though OP

Screw it, finally gonna bite and blow some money I don't need to spend. Does the coupon code xi299ss still work? When during the ordering process do you input the coupon code?

Edit: Nevermind, found it.

I totally want the Alienware m17x R4, 7970m, 1080p set-up for $1200+. I think I have some family members who works for the military. Two questions though

1) Can that person pay using my credit card?
2) Can the laptop be shipped to my address instead of his?

I do one of those things most times I use these kinds of discounts but doing both looks a little strange if done multiple times but thats just my opinion. I wouldn't see it as exploitation by any means if done a couple times per year but anymore and you'd be pushing your luck.

I would say no for the 2GB of ram for the video card for gaming unless you decide to run an external monitor that is beyond 1080p or more than 1 1080p monitor. Seeing as the max resolution for the M14x only goes to 1600x900 the regular 650M is more than enough. As for the 12G of ram that will only help in CPU intensive games (like SC2 for example) but for most games you will not notice a big difference. Ram is more for multitasking, but 12G is over kill for most. The sweet spot most would argue right now is 4-8G's (software has not caught up to hardware yet) especially seeing how this is quality ram at 1600mhz I feel 12 is not needed but that's your call. Just be glad you can get in on the deal I'm very jelly laugh out loud
There's so many things wrong with this post I don't even know where to begin. Starcraft 2 wouldn't benefit from going from 4 to 8 GB of RAM, let alone 12 GB. And that video card (GT 650 m) is quite mediocre. If you want something for serious gaming (Skyrim, BF3, etc), then get something with at least a GTX 580 (equivalent to a GTX 675). Otherwise, you will have a laptop that very soon won't be able to play most new games at better than medium settings.

If you can find Ivy Bridge i7, 650M, 6G of 1600 ram and 1T of 7200 HDD for around $550 anywhere else let me know LMAO
Not saying it's not a good deal at all, just calling it like it is when it comes to AAFES. No need to break out the silly faces.

This is sad, I certainly would not of gone away quietly... kudos to you for taking the high ground,


This is true; but, the m14x bare with the i7 for $554 is a good deal, you can always upgrade to an SSD on your own. 6GB RAM is more than enough for the other hardware capabilities of this laptop and if you plan on sitting and playing a game get a good monitor to play on as 900p is by no means "HD".

I won't comment on people getting their friends' drinkin' buddy to get one for a 12 pack of beer. You figured a way to cheat the system and the people who are eligible for this, so figure the rest out on your own.
Very true, and I'm glad you didn't get on the hate-wagon like the other dude. Those of us who've had to live with AAFES knows exactly how they are. Honestly I'd be amazed if they stay in business if they weren't the only game in town.

The 650m can run bf3 on ultra (the ddr5 version)...I think you're delusional man!

After reading more of the comments to save problems the things that if I was looking at possible exploits or fraud in lessening order would be if ip addresses in different states or countries were logging into the account to make the purchases, how many times or number of items ordered...think resale, and for card and billing....It wouldn't even be a blip if I'd use their card and ship to my address or as a gift to them the reverse with my card used and their different address.

The thing to remember is don't give them a reason to look closer at the transactions because if you do things outside the norm and cause it to be looked at closer, then those man hours spent looking at the history need to be accounted for and my own experience I need to log from every 1/4 man hour to every 4hrs spent depending on project and who its for.

A system of this size may even have some things like bans done automatically if preset parameter limits are exceeded for that account within a given timeframe.

I live in Houston but have a brother in San Francisco who'd probably be willing to help out.

"For whoever made multiple orders and sent to different addresses/names, think twice on if you need to cancel some of the orders for saving your career. You are challenging the government."

The wiki quote... what??? Who wrote this crap?? How are you "challenging the government" by not listening to dell or AAFES? Melodramatic much?
