quiet chump. Dutch is a worthless language anyway. I'll stick my head in the discussion and put you in your place without any issues as you have previously seen. In the meantime you can continue your enthusiastic computer journey

If I were to choose custom parts that would equal that computer, it would be very well over $1500 :c

tedman, thank you for adding your comment. no one here has brought that up and no one here has responded to that so you have provided a lot of value to the thread.

And you seem to not understand the value of someone being able to go to a store (without having vast knowledge of individual PC components), and pick up something to play PC games on that will fit in their entertainment center under their TV. Considering I just built my own mini ITX HTPC, and know the cost and headaches involved, I don't think this is a bad deal at all.

A lot of confusion and intimidation go out the window when you can pick up a gaming PC you know will work as intended, or you get to take the whole package back. Just think about picking out a power supply. Hell, half the people on OCN think you need a 1000W PSU just to run their gtx 580.

Also, here in Chile, computer hardware is two times as expensive. So, I could just buy it, and get a friend to send it to me. I'd pay for shipping, and even then, it'd be less expensive than building a custom PC with similar specs.

Another chilean on ocn, absurd. I didn't know there were that many of us in the world

it is not so much about price as it is about value. This is being marketed as a gaming machine and it has the look and name (alienware) to make people think they are buying an elite system when in fact, it is a mid/low level gaming PC that will be obsolete fairly quickly. Fully upgraded, this thing runs 1200+ dollars and still would suffer greatly in comparison of other pre-builts around that price. I just feel bad for people who are new to PC gaming that think they are spending around a thousand dollars on something they think will be incredibly awesome and then when the rubber hits the road, it is underwhelming and disappointing.
Basically, here's a question - if you had a friend or family member that saved up from their job or allowance and had 1000 dollars to spend on a computer, knowing this would their main and only PC for the next 3-4 years, would you recommend this system? or something else?

Foolsmasher, above is the post I wrote. Please tell me exactly where I advocated that anyone build their own computer? I understand that there is value in buying a pre-built computer, I have never argued that point, my entire issue with this computer is that they are misleading customers by calling it a gaming machine and they are overcharging for it based on the name and fancy case. That sort of exploitative marketing/salesmanship is wrong and I feel bad for people who are taken advantage of because they trusted a company that misled them.

A.) It will run anything out there at higher framerates, better resolution, and overall image quality than consoles. It does play games, and is a gaming machine if you choose to use it as such.

B.) It will fit in your entertainment center. Most people's wives/mothers/etc. would not have a gaming tower PC alongside their furniture in their living room. It looks tacky. I'm not a fan of the Alienware case TBH, but it would be much more discrete than a tower PC sitting on the floor with cables poking out the back.

C.) Selling a competitively priced product is not exploiting anyone, or anything. Show me where Dell/Alienware say that the base model will run BF3 on Ultra settings at 60FPS+ on 1080P. They aren't lying about anything to my knowledge.
