    That's equivalent to a low-end gaming rig. ($350-$400)
    Alienware SEVERELY overcharges for their products. With that said, it is still a step up, albeit no a massive one. You will be able to play bf4, etc, but you won't have the best time with it...

    I already stated it was a step up...
    Yes, it is better. But this still isn't a beast gaming rig by any means. I just wanted to clarify. The Alienware IS stronger, but it's still a low-end gaming machine.
