Get this if you are
1.) On the go constantly
2.) A LAN party addict
3.) Don't believe in upgrades
4.) Get dizzy without 3D
5.) One of those people who have cutting edge everything regardless of need

You forgot about:

6.) Have $8000 to spend on a laptop

This makes me want one even more, because when I'm on the go for weeks at a time sometimes I wish my laptop could deliver, sure it can play Crysis but only at a low resolution..

This is the kind of power I need, but at such a high cost i think it's cheaper to build a portable desktop.

According to some "hands-on" on other websites,M17x comes with GTX 460M/HD 6850M and there is no word about SLI or CF,if that's true,then it will be a huge disappointment IMO.

Not surprised in can play C2 in 3d , since Crytek has made their own 3d method that doesn't lower the frame rate at all.

But I believe this shit will struggle with nvidia's 3d vision.

If it overheats (and throttles) under what should be considered intended usage of the machine, it is faulty design. If they sell it for thousands of dollars, they should get sued.

Note that the $1,500 is the starting price. Alienware computers get very expensive very fast when you actually configure them

They actually do not get that expensive.....A well configured one with dual gpus and the extreme proc is almost always under $4k unless you go with the max available ram and dual ssds and the highest warranty option.....

They were expensive 6 years ago but it is a different company now (Dell)

I just get really fed up every time there is an article about Alienware and the ignorant (majority are in regards to high end laptops) readers of Toms Hardware start foaming at the mouth and talking about how overpriced and stupid they are.

I have one and can say that they are not that stupidly overpriced and the quality and performance are both quite exceptional by laptop standards. And no, I am not just trying to justify my purchase - I am legitimately happy with what I got and do not regret spending the money at all.
