I have been looking at all kinds of reviews and whatever information i can find and i'm really conflicted on which i should get. The price and specs are pretty much the same for each. From what i understand they both a metal body but i'm not sure about that. I think what it comes down to does the asus have better cooling than the alienware? I don't like it when laptop keys get hot under my fingers when gaming. And do either of them have a common technical problem?
