Alienware M11x good deal?

My local Future Shop (walking distance to my house) is selling these laptops for $899 CAN. I wanted a hybrid between portability and performance and this laptop was my pick. Im mainly going to be using it for school and other normal use, and sometimes gaming when Im away from my gaming desktop.

I missed the $200 off from the Dell website so this is the only one I could find, at least I dont have to pay for shipping. Or should I just wait it out?

Ok, thanks. Anyway I sold my old computer and getting $300 for it, now I have extra money in my pocket. Now I dont know if I should order online or just walk to Future Shop and get one from there.

Alienware is never a good deal. The CPU in that machine is outdated.

Thanks for the replies guys, Im still undecided. I have a 14" Acer laptop right now that keeps freezing so I really wanted a new one. I want something smaller than 14" and powerful.

Those specs are nice, whats your reason for selling it? I'll keep this in mind, I cant really buy a laptop right now until I sold my other PC. Are you around Toronto?
