^I agree with Jake, you are spending a ton of money on a system that you will never fully take advantage of. If you want an Alienware and don't need the 17'' screen, then at least look at the M15x. It'll be cheaper and still give you more than you need.

Yea took a look at, would like a lighter laptop, my current Hp is like 15lbs and just a pain to carry around. I would think if i continue on the path of programming that I will be doing heavy programming and running it. So just want to make sure my laptop can handle that.

I know I def want SSD, I guess I could just get 4gb of memory that should be plenty for my needs =D, that CPU i am confused on which one is the best. I want a laptop that is not slow or will slow down during multitasking.
