Default Need help modding my Alienware M11X laptop!!! PLEASE READ!!!

I just purchased my $1400 Alienware M11X and it will arrive next week! I have been building a list of crazy mods to do to this laptop and most people I tell don't believe its possible to do to any computer, but I'm pretty sure it is and I will do it anyways! I am wanting to know what everyone would do as far as mods? I am open to any suggestions!

My first mod is going to be: download Nintendo Wii Emulator and Play Wii games in HD(which Wii can't do), then buy a USB Wii sensor receiver to plug up to the laptop and play any game with the Wii controllers! Most people said its not possible, but I've already done it kinda... by wii hacks and bluetooth to make the computer read the controllers, but it wasn't stable and was in beta testing.

Another mod I have listed is to download DeskSpace for the 3D cube effect in windows along with the Aero Theme!

Another mod listed is PS3 and Xbox game controllers via USB, Has anyone got the wireless ones to work with the computer???

Steering Wheel mod would be awesome connected to a flatscreen via HDMI, Logitech G27 has the clutch pedal and shifter too!

External Hard Drive: 1 TB External USB 3.0 Hard Drive

Here is a crazy mod I wanna do: Mod GTA 4 and use the Wii controllers with it, that would be so awesome cuz they don't make Grand Theft Auto for the Wii, just imagine gettin into a car and puttin the Wii controller into a steering wheel then jumpin out of the car and puttin the controller into a gun! I am looking for someone to Design my 2001 Ford Mustang GT Bullitt to put into the game as well, I made a website just for my car 2001 Ford Mustang GT Bullitt and if anyone can help that would be awesome!

Wireless Mouse Mod: The mouse looks like a little mustang and the headlights light up when you press the buttons!

External Screen Mods: Flatscreen via HDMI and Digital Projector via VGA and that will give me 3 monitors that I would be able to drag any window across all 3 screens!

I am also going to load 2 tracking devices on this laptop for security, plus 3 extra layers of security.

Please feel free to list any crazy mods you can think of! Nothing is impossible and I'm about to show the world what this computer can do!

I went all out on this laptop when I purchased it and I will go all out with the mods to make this the best Laptop ever, so any suggestions would be great!

You aren't supposed to create multiple threads. It breaks up the conversation and clutters up the forum.

You didn't list anything that I'd really consider a mod. It's actually pretty normal stuff if you ask me. Are you looking for actual mods to do, or just more things to use your laptop for?

EDIT: A couple more things... You cannot use three monitors with this laptop. The GT 335M only supports two. So when you plug two monitors in, one of the three screens will be disabled. Also, you can use the wireless xbox controllers with computers through an adapter mad by Microsoft. AFAIK, they only sell it bundled with a controller (link) but you can probably get just an adapter from eBay.

The mouse mod you listed can be bought from road mice. The 1TB hard drive can be bought off the internet too.
