    Do you absolutely need a laptop?
    They are far more fragile than people think ( especially the power ports) and unless portability is a real issue, not a very good investment.
    Everything in a laptop is 2 to 3 times more expensive than a PC.

    Right then.
    If forced at gunpoint to pick a laptop (and that's what it would take) I'd prolly choose a Toshiba.

    That's weird clocker. I always thought Toshiba products were pos until recently. I saw one of my new bosses with one. I was suprised. But the guy travels all over & is very astute so that gives me pause.

    When I used to work in the tech/fiber optics biz 90% + people visiting execs, techs etc. all had Dells. Then I'd see the odd IBM thinkpad.

    So I'd look at Dells & Toshiba if it twas I.

    I'd personally get a Toshiba one too. Sony aren't bad either, but they cost a little more.

    As mentioned above, Alienware is just a ripoff. You could get one with the same specs for half the price. Avoid.

    Dell XPS Gaming laptops are really sweet.
