Yeah, but that's also a 17.3 inch laptop.

OP, what size are you looking to stay around? If you were considering the m11x, I assume a smaller notebook would be preferable?

Look at grabbing a Gateway FX laptop. They're going for $450-$650 these days on ebay.

Perfect model here: http://cgi.ebay.com/Gateway-P-7811FX...ht_1615wt_1139

I agree with one of the posters that said both of the OPs choices are not what you want for laptop gaming. MSI is a good company, Alienware I never have really heard many great things about.

You want to make sure your GPU is a good one and not some stupid rebrand and you want to make sure you have a high clocked processor. Higher clock is going to be better than more cores. Because of the heat restraints in a laptop you can't have both.

Don't waste your money on Alienware stuff.

I paid $600 for my laptop, and it'd crush the M11x if every single way.

Except portability, durability, and battery life. Oh, wait... The m11x is a niche market, it's not for everybody. It's great for a school notebook that has gaming capability, but don't expect to max out everything on new games. I love mine and don't regret it one bit.
