    Gaming laptop? Alienware? How much that cost you, like 4,000? You're aware you could build your own or get one built (yes, even laptops) for maybe 1/4 of that cost for the same thing, right?

    I agree, Alienware is way overpriced.

    Though you basically pay to have an alien icon on your laptop.

    dido all of the above, but it would cost $1500-$2000 to get that built somewhere else by my estimates.

    I never saw an appeal for a gaming laptop.

    PC gaming? Sure. But when are you gonna be gamin on the go? LAN situtations, maybe, but whatevers clever.

    I've got a gaming laptop just because I have to have a laptop for work/school, take it with me every day, and I like playing games. I didn't want to have to buy 2 different computers and then not have the files I downloaded or stuff installed on one of the computers when I wanted it.... plus I can play games during work or what not!

    I think one of the best graphics cards I have ever used is the GeForce GTX550 TI, it handles most of the stuff I have :). I play Crysis 2, Battlefield 3, and Red Orchestra 2 with it, and it's an awesome card for those games. I recommend it for almost any game, since It can handle almost, if not anything on the PC platform.

    I don't think that you can build your own gaming laptop for 1/4 of the price just because of the companies that have the ability to buy the parts at premium prices and as a result construct them for cheaper prices. Just a word of advice however you could of saved a good chunk of money by getting another computer and replacing it with an alienware casing if you liked that, because alienware is like mac books (no offense to you mac book lovers) but what I'm saying is that its the brand that helps it be sold so they can increase the price and something like hp with the same specs may cost half price or less... I have also heard so bad things about dell customer support so you may want to check that out and be careful. Congratz on the new laptop though!

    I wish I had a better computer so I could engage in PC gaming. I have a Dell Inspiron 15.
    500 GB Hard Drive
    4096 KB RAM
    16.3 Inch Screen HD

    Got it for 400$ from Best Buy.
    Thought it was a pretty good deal
