if you plan to game, then the Alienware would be the faster over-all rig

The first one if faster the core 2 extreme is old tech the I7 980 is THE fastest processor that is avaliable for a desktop.

Well the alienware would be a little faster at loading apps with its SSDs but you put them into the HP 180 and there is nothing that will touch the speed of that machine.

while I agree with you on the better CPU, the fact that the alienware has two GTX 260 in SLI while the HP has a single 4850 pretty much ends the gaming contest before it begins. Plus you can always OC the Quad QX-9300 to cut the gap between i7, OC the HP may be more difficult if the BIOS locks you out of those features.

Also note the dual GTX260s vs single 4850.

enviroman63, you need to rephrase your question:
"Which machine is the fastest for *insert the uses you want to know about here*"

If price is not the issue build a desktop with the parts you want in it. It is stupid to limit yourself only to those two machines.

I would never spend that much money period on a laptop.

if its not your money, then its not your problem :sol: 

I would never spend money on a CPU costing over $200, a case over $100, or a SLI/ CF set up but then I understand my tastes are not other people's

Suggesting builds period on the forums period then is pointless. Since its not my or your money. Let me put it another way. I would never put that kind hardware in a laptop period. I would always go with a desktop alternative unless that machine has to be portable of course.

I agree with everyone else - the Alienware has better Graphics cards but the HP has a better processor. I Wouldnt buy either though. I would save money and get a better product by building one myself. BUT you cant build a laptop youself so easily, so if you want a laptop then buy the laptop........

I think you missed out on that one. to paraphrase:

I wouldn't buy... I would build... but LAPTOPS can't be build... buy laptop IF you want a laptop.

Well its a bit like asking which is a better deal, a $10'000 Harley Davidson motorcycle or a $10'000 SUV.

I mean whats the point in comparing a laptop to a desktop? You will always get better performance from a desktop for the amount of money you spend, but you cant take a desktop on the bus. And its true - you dont find that many people who build their own laptop.

Its a steam of consciousness ;P

good analogy. Different preference, different capabilities. Different options.
