What is your budget?
Do you have an opinion AMD or Intel?
What do you plan to do with the COmputer?
What sort of things do you want?

Alienware are good; but expensive for it.

Alienware are well worth there cash if you have it . Also alienware will about do every thing cause they are made for games so there for they are powerful. So Video Editing , Word Processing , Gaming, Images will be done with ease. Or build cause it will be about 500 cheaper and for that extra money get better proformance.

It really all depends on that sort of things you can do, or want to do, or want it to do.

For games personally I would recommend the Intel 4 HT EE - simply because of the Hyperthreading and the Cache which will do games brilliantly. I don't know whether you can get the EE on Laptops.
