Hi everyone, I am looking a desktop replacement gaming laptop and have narrowed down on the Alienware 18 and the Razer Blade Pro. I was looking for any personal experiences with these two laptops or any other rivals of these laptops. This is my first experience really with gaming on laptops as I have recently moved from console gaming to pc gaming.

Best solution

Instead of buying a pre-built, overpriced computer, you should learn how to build your own.
It's very easy and will save you thousands.

Also, i wouldn't recommend getting a laptop for gaming.
They can't be upgraded so you're gonna have to buy a new one in 3 years.

I would like to buy a desktop, but as I will be traveling a lot for college, it is not possible for me

I've been researching the blade pro too. From what I've read, the razor blade pro is really really pricey but you get a very good extremely thin(macbook like) gaming laptop. But for less you can the alien Ware. While it's very bulky and not as beautiful as the macbook- like razor blade, you can get a dual sli configuration with lots more storage for maybe the same price as the razor. I personally price be dammed, would by the razor blade.

And the only reason I haven't bought it is cause I spent a good amount of money on my desktop which has a gtx 780, but I hardly use it only when I want too look at a something pretty (graphically) haha.

Well I decided that I am going to get a Microsoft Surface for college, and getting a desktop because its going to be so much cheaper haha. But I really appreciate the imput

Both are ridiculously overpriced if you ask me. Honestly for the price of the Razer you could buy a $1500 desktop and an $800 laptop like a Lenovo Y500 and get the best of both worlds.

That is not true the Alienware laptops are upgradable and if you visit alianware a service channel they show you how on YouTube. I own an alianware 17 and have upgraded it in 15min.
