Summary: I will start by saying I have not purchased this exact laptop. However please read what I have to say before you shrug it off as someone who doesnt know what I'm talking about. When looking for a powerhouse of a laptop like this there is one thing you should always concider. Am I getting the most bang for my buck? When it comes to Alienware you absolutly are NOT. Unless you are looking for a laptop that looks really cool that is.
