I am planning to buy an alienware m17x as my second pc (first one is a desktop maxed out) which ill be using to play when i go away from home or for university and programs such word, powerpoint etc. I chose this laptop because i think(despite what other people think) it is pretty cheap in comparison to some other gaming laptops such as MSI or Sager who are worth more. I am also looking at some battery life and i heard that this laptop can handle 4 hours of use(not gaming).
Heres my m17x customization
Processor : 17 2670 2.20 ghz
Graphics: Nvidia ge force 560m
RAM: 4 gb atm, ill buy more later from a different customer than dell
Hard Disk: Hybridm SSHD Momentus 500 GB
Screen Full HD non 3d(that would be a waste of battery life)
Intel Wireless LAN 6300 3x3 (802.11a/b/g/n), (I heard Killer wireless causes BSOD)
And thats what i could customize. I just wanted to know what do you guys think of all this. Is this laptop right for me?
Again i will use it for gaming when im away and for university. I also dont think its excessively big and heavy. What do you guys think?
Ps forgot to say that this customization is worth 1368.66 EURO.
