Still, I hope you enjoy.
Really? I thought the price was amazing for what you get. The GT 555m is only slightly slower than the GTX 460m. And I mean slightly slower. The CPU will destroy everything out on the market at the moment even without the dynamic frequency it has built in for the Turbo Boost.
Personally, I thought it was the only deal that Alienware had going. For $1200, it sports a better GPU than most will ever put into a machine of the same size, has a legit blower fan for the CPU and GPU separately, meaning a cooling system that has some effort put into it, and looks sleek and professional.
I'd have just bought it stock outright if I had the cash.
