hello,i need help as i am new to hardware modding and want to decide .

i was till now using a old desktop and now planning to upgrade to alienware 14 laptop but then i saw this http://www.bitfenix.com/global/en/products/chassis/colo...

bitfendix collosus window case AND NOW so on i liked and doing a more resarch and no luck i need help looks matter and so on gaming perfomance i was looking to buy alienware 14 but now got stuck with the bitfendix collosus.,

)now alienware costs a lot more then making a custom built desktop and if i am correct then is alienware overpriced ?

and so on should i take parts from my old pc and buy new one and build from ground a new pc or should i support the laptop and go away with it and also yet since it is cheaper to make a desktop i am confused a bit.

i liked the alienwares light and different combinations. and wanted to ask that is there any alternative ( imean color customization etc on a desktop) i have seen a few led fans and lights strips is there anything else?

and the last thing can any body recommend a better case?

please help me as i am in quite a bit lack of time.

I would recommend getting a custom desktop.
I bought a gaming laptop, and i truly regret it.

I would say - desktop is gaming, laptop is browsing,relaxing and such. The performance per dollar is really so bad, and even worse with alienware.

If the money is there, buy a not too expensive ultrabook, and then build a custom pc later.

It depends. What size do you want you pc? I am a silent freak, and would get nzxt h440.

I do like bitfenix miniitx/microatx cases, cant go wrong with that.
