I was that ignorant at one point a bought a M11x cause I wanted to be able to game anywhere. I got it for 600 bucks and it was actually pretty good. But once I educated myself built my own rig, I feel stupid for ever thinking alienware was worth a ****. I built my sig rig for right around a grand. I went to alienwares site and built the exact same specs ecept lower end graphics cards and it cost close to 2500 bucks. Gross...
Saying people are ignorant is true I was ignorant and then became educated about PC gaming and OCing thanks to this forum. Ignorant does not mean cut down it means uneducated.
Well laptops are a totally different story, you can't build an equivalent laptop like you would a desktop. I bought an M11x when I went to AFghanistan because moving my desktop wasn't practical, I ended up selling it for $50 less than I paid for it though.
