Thread: Thinking of getting the new Alienware gaming laptop

    I think given its spec, it's pretty good value for money - What do you guys think?

    Only concern is given the hardware, will it tend to overheat? - would I be better off with a proper tower?

    Many thanks.

    They piss about too much with their demos for my liking, so I can't be bothered to check them out.

    That gives me the impression that they probably do the same with their kit - too much bling and not enough substance.

    Dollar for dollar, you're always going to get more performance from a desktop.
    If you don't require the portability, don't pay the premium imposed by the form factor.

    In the interest of transparency, let me admit that I fuckin hate laptops, Alienware or not.

    Alienware, and pretty much any high performance gaming laptop will be HOT and loud. so if you're still interested be prepared to invest in a decent laptop cooler with fans.

    like the above poster mentioned, you're paying mainly for the portability... so unless you attend a lan party or move a lot i'd say go with a desktop.

    if you're concerned about space and don't want a full tower check out Shuttle SFF type computers.

    ps. only cool ppl attend land parties k? lol
