Alienware is good for gaming and stuff, but it gets so hot you can probably fry eggs on it...

The Alienware Area-51 m15x is a very good gaming laptop. I've read some good reviews of them.

Many say otherwise.

My thoughts exactly.

Alienware laptops may be "good" buy they are also heavily overpriced.

We need to know how much you can spend before suggesting any laptops.

price doesnt matter, if it costs 5 grand than it costs 5 grand. I just dont want one. that is going to crash or be slow at anytime. my sis has had 3 srry everyone "notebooks". I told u I am not expert. all of them have crashed. I want one to watch movies on maybe play games. music, work, and anything else I need it for. My work said they will pay to get me a "notebook". so I want enough space to store my work. with clients. and all of my social stuff as well. so I am going to need alot of space on the "notebook".

Have a look at iBUYPOWER. They have some nice laptops. The M570TU looks like it may fit you're needs. They are also fully configurable so you could add a larger drive if you need more storage space.

Hey my choice is a little more economically friendly, i have a Hp Pavillion dv6700 entertainment laptop, and i love it. it has 3g of ram and i have never had any serious problems. i play WoW and F.E.A.R. online and those work great (with the performance settings leaning towards a higher performance instead of graphics) and am running vista, this works great for me and is substancially cheaper than a alien computer (around $600-$700ish)
