Default Which?

Which is better, the Sentia or the Sentia M3200?

http://www.alienware.com/Product_Pag...l_default.aspx

Also, I need laptop recommendations. It needs to be under $3000, and can't exceed 13 inches in width (dimensions, not screen). I've got the Sony TX in mind, as well as a power book 12 inch.

I don't really like any of them other than the AMD one, Aurora m7700. It's fast, but expensive.

Well, obvisously if you must choose between the two, the m3200 is better. Intel Extreme Graphics 3 has got to be better than the Intel Extreme Graphics 2 version and has faster RAM.

as already said the m3200 is better.
But I'd just spend $150 more and get the Area-51 m5700. You get ddr2 ram, sata hdd, 6800 Go and a bigger screen for that $150.

I think you're all missing the point that I want a notebook here, not a desktop replacement. No offense, I'm very grateful for your help. If I were to get a desktop, I'd get a desktop replacement, namely the Alienware m7700. But I'm looking for something nice and small. Case closed, I have chosen the M3200. Thanks guys

If you wanna game, the M3200, although even that is at very low settings.

You won't be able to play the latest games on either, so save your Money and get the first one, the Sentia. The other one isn't worth $150 more, the faster RAM won't give that much more performance and the graphics will get you an extra 4 or 5 fps a second, so still unplayable
