Hi, I'm looking to buy a decent high performance gmaing laptop. Dell has a fall clearance sale on laptops, and one of them is a Dell 15z. The link is at

http://configure.us.dell.com/dellstore/print_summary_de...


And if anyone is not able to browse the link, the configuration is as follows -

XPS 15z XPS 15z

VIDEO CARD NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 525M 2GB graphics with Optimus
MEMORY 8GB Dual Channel DDR3 1333MHz
INTERNAL OPTICAL DRIVE 8X Slot Load CD/DVD Burner (Dual Layer DVD+/-R Drive)
WIRELESS + BLUETOOTH Intel© Centrino© Advanced-N 6230 & Bluetooth 3.0

I would replace the Hard drive witha SSD if i buy the laptop. Do you guys think its a decent laptop ? Will I be able to play some decent games with this laptop ?
I really had some bad experience with my previous laptops and I hope this time the community would help me with a good decision. I prefer a laptop which is silent and does not make much noise.

Did any one have a bad experience with the Dell 15z ?

My previous was a Sony Vaio F12 series, It worked well for 6 months and then started having problems. Loud fan, slow performance, display problems and i really had a bad experience.
