-First off I see someone had already raised the question/answered about the new i5/i7 over the C2D but i just sort of needed a clearer answer as to whether its really worth the extra money for either the i5/i7(most likely the i5).
-Also the selection between getting the 160 HDD or the 500 for an extra $150. Would it be worth just getting the 160 then buying a 500 seperatly? For hopefully a bit cheaper?
-and one last thing WWAN antenna, it says is used for mobile broadband, so does that mean, as i have a a pre-paid 3 wireless broadband account(which is just a simcard in a usb wireless dongle), am i able to use that if i get the upgrade?
Anyways sorry if its alot to answer but i need to know these things as i like to know as much information as possible before i purchase things =P
Thanks all =]
I'd go with the i5 just cuz I can and it's probably better than the C2D...
As for the hard drive, I picked up a Momentus XT, 500gb with 4gb SSD hybrid for 135$... and I get to keep the 160gb one as backup.
WWAN is cool since you don't have any dongles; really neat for all around people. I'd love to have some in Canada, I'd buy one for sure.

You betcha. Got it in yesterday afternoon but haven't had a chance to do a lot with it. My windows index is pretty nice tho. all 7+ but my Raid 500gb drives at 5.9

Any suggested game benches I can run for you guys? Will run Vantage on it pretty soon.

On the pics, I need to setup a brightly lit place.. my camera wasn't having a good day on my desk

Added a preview shot as my picture proof

I can't say I'm a proud owner of Alienware laptop. It gets so hot and shuts down every time I try to watch a video or big content is loading. See below for specs.

Haha.. It's not that bad. I'd rather have a huge box protecting it from those fedex guys that throw your boxes around than have it damaged and me being ticked off because of it

Kinda sounds like either it needs to be taken apart and dusted/cleaned, or you have a fan or something going bad.
