Alienware tough decision!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Should i go with the mx14, 17, or 18? Will all of these laptops play the most recent games fine? mainly bf3. Also would this laptop be a good choice to last me the next few years in gaming or am i wasting my money?

Laptops won't last you as long in terms of gaming compared to a desktop.

If you have to get a laptop look around XoticPC.com, you'll get more for your money! thumb.gif

XoticPC.com, OriginPC.com, Maingear.com - I'd recommend checking out any one of these sites first and custom configuring a laptop that meets your needs, you'll probably find something a bit less expensive and exactly to your liking thumb.gif

Probably the the m17x. It should be able to play the most recent games.

M17x. My friend has it and it's pretty good but a little pricey. But keep in mind that you could definitely build a desktop that's way faster with that money..

But if you really want a gaming laptop, then I would definitely recommend M17x.

I've got the M17x R4 and the build quality is the best I've seen in a laptop, to be honest. I love it.

For alienware, the M14x. Otherwise go to sager/ clevo models for larger laptops.
