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.

the m18x is way too big to be carried :D 
Another question: Do you guy think that it will be possible to customize/buy from Dell's site a m17x r3 after the m17x R4 comes out?
