Alienwares suck.... Who told you they were good? They use half rate parts, Dell parts, and have terrible pushy customer service and sales department. Alienware can't outperform anything myself and AthlonFX can build. Our systems PWN them!!!

Here, buy this laptop!
http://www.ibuypower.com/ibp/store/c...r.aspx?mid=131
It is P4, but still, WOW. The power, and the graphics card is user upgradeable as well. Nice lappy!! Great price also for what you get, unlike AlienLingere..... LMAO!!! LMAO!!

This is where i got the samsung from:
http://www.johnlewis.com/Shopping/Pr...=samsung%20m40
dont know if the link is going to work, that laptop is a bit thick for my liking, it is a good laptop but i prefer the more practical thin laptops, you cant beat John Lewis for customer support, they are better than anyone that i have delt with. im not saying that the laptop is not any good, im just saying that i prefer this one.

That doesnt cost more then alienware. I would listen to his RECCOMENDATIONS. Just look at what the laptop has to offer then shop around. We are not going to pick out the laptop FOR you, just suggest. Look at the processor, gfx, sound, display, etc, then do your shopping. Look at ibuypower, cyberpower, dell(budget system), alienware(not TOO bad), voodoo, monarch, and sager. there.....

voodoo is nice. but yeah man, alienware is alright. i mean cmon, would they have recived all the reviews that the did if they'd have used crappy parts? and where did u get that info man? cmon. alienware is good. expenseive alright, but still good. of course, dont get me wrong here, im not flaming. im just curious what makes u think that. this is an educated response. i am not going to end up like giancarlo. lol. is his account still disabled it? hhaha. i wonder what he did that time to deserve it. haha. but wait, also, he's talking about laptops. i dont u can build laptops. desktops, oh yeah, screw alienware. customs are way better. but as for laptops... yeah.

Alieware's laptop support is AWFUL, ask people whjo have bought a laptop from them. Second, their prices are outrageous. I built my own pc an it came to 800$ less then what they were charging. The only thing that is good to buy from Alienware is the ALX, IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOUR ARE DOING BUT KNOW YOU NEED THAT TYPE OF COMPUTER. You can build SLI for cheaper if you know what you are doing. So bascilly, Alienware is not great, just a showy case.

Anybody who says Alienware sucks is deeply misinformed.. in fact grossly misinformed. PCGamer has done extensive reviews on their computers and find all their parts of high rate design. Yes building your computer is always cheaper.

And when the Alienware you buy breaks down, you go running to Mommy because their fuckin customer support but you on hold for 4 hours straight..... ALienware sucks. Cyberpower and iBuypower are WAY BETTER. They build them better, have standard 3 year warranty with 24/7 tech support and available at home service. So, that makes Alienware beyond RETARDED!
