NO alienware laptop for under 1000 dollars can compare to a custom rig for 1000 dollars. I say go for the custom built one. I can arrange it for you if you tell me what you want to do on the rig.

As for getting internet on a laptop, you buy a wireless router, plug it into the modem and it transmits a wireless signal.

definitely go with a custom pc. You can get the same stuff for something like 30% cheaper.

And building it yourself is much more fun, and you can get into overclocking. You'll be glad you decided to go custom once you do.

With building your own you choose the little details like motherboard, RAM brand. Stuff like that.
