    Alienware = little bloatware.

    The software they do include is great, though.

    My favorite is when you format and reinstall an os, and the drivers for the network adapter arnt included in the installation.

    dont mousepads usually have generic or plug n play drivers? ive only ever needed to install sound/ network drivers (and drivers for stuff i bought that didnt include drivers.

    my boot time is pretty fast, in order to reach the bios config menu i have to hold shift while restarting to delay the boot times and launch whatever menu i need or else its too fast for me to hit f12 or f8

    "Reinstall all over it."

    Just remember to not use the discs it came with. Actually who am I kidding, computers do not come with discs any more.

    I probably should sort some copies of windows 8 and 10 though. Fortunately everybody I know at this point is happy enough with 7.

    Yeah. You shouldn't use the drivers from the disks either. They're most likely outdated.

    When I re-installed Windows 8 on my laptop a while back, it took 2 hours for it to update.

    I would agree. I usually build my PCs, but the former factor of this pc is great, and I do a lot of travelling. I bring this pc everywhere.

    How to get rid of bloatware? A better question is why you'd buy a pre-built PC. :P

    Aren't laptops pre-built PCs by definition?
