Summary: Straight out of the box, I realized the plastic housing that the machine comes in is somewhat flimsy and cheap, and the AC adapter is HUGE and heavy. This is not a travel laptop for sure. Great for a LAN party but not for going on long trips with. After running some initial gaming benchmarks I can safely say this laptop is faster than even my desktop rig that I normally game on. I can play Call of Duty MW2 on full settings without a single hiccup.
Summary: I bought the laptop for real-time conference and university presentations of virtual worlds; it lives up to my expectations and then some. I've already recommended it to a number of people in the arts and academic communities. It's incredibly heavy, but once it's set up, it flies. It's extremely easy to overclock, configure, and set up for projection.

Summary: This thing breezes through modern warfare 2, age of conan, and left for dead. If you want a laptop that plays high end games for the cheapest price, this is it. Other than short battery life and a little heavy, it's not a huge deal since the performance just skyrockets over the cons. Definitely get this laptop if your into gaming on the go.
Summary: Excellent machine! It does get hot so you will want to put it on a cooling pad or something. Don't sit it on your bare legs or a pillow or something or you will burn it up. I picked up the XPad and this is enough to help the air circulate around the machine. Probably any cooling pad will work though. Otherwise, I put Linux on this and everything works great on it.
Summary: Drive it like you stold it,This laptop will play any thing you throw at it.Protect your investment and buy a cooler,Keep up with Windows updates. This thing is not slow by any means. Don't waist your money on Alienware,This computer will eat one for lunch. Best bang for the money,you will never need another puter.
