PLEASE. DO NOT buy the Alienware. I currently have an alienware Aurora. Worst investment in my life. Took 3 MONTHS for it to come, had to cancel order once because some parts were on backorder and I was never notified. Second, the hinges on that thing break off easily. Read the Alienware Forums over at dell.com. Customer support is HORRIBLE. Also, if you reinstall you're finished because if you use the resource dvd that CAME WITH THE LAPTOP, your mobo will downgrade to an unstable BIOS rendering the lights and fans broken. currently I have no lights because of this and the fans are at top speed, really loud. Please, please do not get an alienware.

Also why are you considering this laptop if your desktop that is in your Sig is way better? You will pay so much for less performance..Just assemble a portable desktop machine if you need to travel with it...

I wouldn't buy one off ebay, you can get screwed on the warranty sometimes. Not a big deal on a netbook, but on a gaming laptop it's pretty important, especially since those tend to fail more.
