Because that's HARDCORE modding.

I don't even think I'm boss enough to do that.

Because to some, a brand name alone is more important than saving money.
^^This.

They can take a brick and call it an Alienware PC and people would still buy it.

the brand name "Alienware" was the best back in the day before custom builds/ botique builders became more mainstream. Once Dell bought Alienware their overall build quality and value went down the tubes.

Too lazy to build their own and don't realize how much better it is to learn and do it themselves lol. Ppl like brand names that society is familiar with, when u deter from that those who don't understand tend to just "stick with the norm"

I think people buy alienware, because even those ppl that are mid-level techies, or even noobs, know that alienware means gaming.

While I agree that Apple builds a ton of quality equipment that many people on this site can't give credit to for whatever reason. I will say that there is a better 27 inch then the Apple cinema display. The DEll U2711 has lower response time and a much better color gamut at 102% vs Apples 72%.

QFT! I love my m11x! I've more or less retired my desktop. Mobility and build quality are amazing. Yes, I paid a premium for it, but I feel it was well worth what I paid for it. I've never been happier with a pre-built machine, laptop or otherwise.

Lol. Those who are commenting saying Alienware is good in the high end pre-builts, are you serious? Take a Look at Digital Storm, Falcon NW, ETC. and tell me Alienware is soo good. Common, their cable management is crap, they look low quality on inside, and they skimp on parts, mainly no name PSUs which will take you entire system down and cheap pos motherboards missing basic features. Thats for Desktops. Laptops are a different story. Nuff Said.

Heck how many of us change their own engine oil. For most of us it is easier for us to pay someone to do it.
I'm actually quite pro at changing my oil/spark plugs/fuel filter.

Spark plugs are a big pain in the ass though.
