12_Please tell us about the brands that you prefer to buy from them and the brands that you don't like and explain the reasons.
I'm writing on my wife's old ASUS S6 (leather edition). She has carried that thing around the world for years and it's still working great. Usually she needs military grade hardware if you want it to last.
I like Alienware and will buy it if it's the best choice but I'm getting old for a computer with more lights than my Christmas three.
13_What country do you live in?
14_Please tell us any additional information if needed.
Do I really need to wait months for the new mobile GPUs that I'm reading about on this forum ?
Thanks for your answer. That's probably what I'll buy. I was looking at Sager last night. They have great options for me but being in Canada it's not a wise choice. Eurocom (Clevo in Canada) prices are just ridiculous.
Also if you decide to be serious about looking like an adult you might consider customizing a dell studio xps. They only go up to a 4670... but the design is much classier than the tacky alienware stuff.
