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. I m ordering it from hidevolution.com, so + taxes it would be 1500 euro
What sager/clevo laptops are you exactly talking about?
Yea i know that the 560 isnt so good, but on the other hand the GTX580 is way too expensive since I will use this laptop occasionally. And the ATI cards, well they use more battery life than nvidia...
The asus one is the ugliest laptop ive ever seen... Do you know if Xoticpc delivers to Europe? Those laptops you pointed out are indeed cheaper, but alienware is better in design. I think the MSi with orange lights only are at its level.
