Alienware is similar to your mother: running hot, ugly, overpriced and nothing like the performance you'd expect. Stay well clear.

A friend of mine has an Alienware laptop. The battery wouldn't charge but it ran fine off the mains, so he sends it away. They ship it to Ireland, and then replace the motherboard (which they themselves said was fine) and charged him 700.

He moaned and complained and it soon dropped to 120, but it shouldn't have happened that way at all.

Why would you want an E6700, and 8GB of ram will atually slow the computer down, there to much of it and it can't find stuff quicker than if you had like 2GB
