    Default Alienware Laptops? Worth it?

    Hi folks!

    The title says it all. I'd like to get an Alienware Laptop, but I'm wondering if it's worth the price. Is there a better brand for the price? Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

    Are you getting one to play games on daily, or is it only going to be used when you travel? Its worth the price to the right users. If you just want a fast laptop to play games on, look at a system like this...

    Newegg.com - ASUS G74 Series G74SX-XN1 Notebook Intel Core i7 2630QM(2.00GHz) 17.3" 12GB Memory DDR3 1333 500GB HDD 7200rpm DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M

    Toss a SSD in and that machine would be smoking!

    I wish they'd start putting these things out with SSDs instead of the disk drives already. Regardless, that ASUS laptop is a monster for that price.

    Alienware is a Dell in a fancy enclosure. It's a pig with lipstick on.

    Dell is an Intel in a fancy enslosure? Mac is an Intel in an even fancier enclosure. They are all pretty much the same crap.

    I assume that the purchase is, in great part, for gaming. Obviously, a MacBook would not be the ideal choice there. But I can say that if you want a fast and lean alternative to bloated Alienware, check out iBUYPOWER.com. Good prices too.

    I still have my ASUS G72GX laptop and still love it. I use to build PCs as a hobby but when I picked this one up at the time I was amazed that a laptop could play so many games (and it's still better than most of the mid-range laptops out now). Highly recommend Asus over Alienware.
