    Oh look a bulky piece of sh*t which is clearly going to be over priced as hell. Let me know when alienware stop being over priced Dells and I'll start considering them as "decent".

    Its good to see that Razer really were right in saying that gaming laptops nowadays are not portable but luggable.

    My top spec desktop will beat that thing hands down and for half the price it is likely to cost. Good luck to the suckers who buy one and 2 months later hear about another model that goes even faster. You can always upgrade it you can't because it's a laptop!

    They were actually more affordable and closer to a reasonable price when AlienWare was it's own firm. You would think that Dell would have thought twice about raising prices after buying AlienWare up when AW's pricing policy was causing them some financial 'wobbles'.
