    I'm buying an alienware. You're all assholes.



    No but seriously, I've got a $1200-1400 budget planned for this summer. And before you guys go rave "go buy a PC, it's better, blah blah". Please pay $70 to ship my entire rig 12 hours north from my house to my dorm. Anyone have any recommendations?

    So are you asking for advice which laptop to get or are you telling us what you're buying?

    Josh knows what's up. I've been using an ASUS G series Laptop for the past 4 years and have treated it like utter shit, yet it's still able to play most games on med-high graphics, where as when I got it new I was able to run ultimate. It's definitely a great company and they have a solid history, not to mention the customer service was pretty decent. Got my old old one from 6ish years ago replaced at no extra cost, save the original insurance. They are slightly more expensive but IMO it's definitely worth it if you're looking for something that can fuck bitches and take numbers. Also it looks like a fucking fighter jet, so that's cool.

      I would steer people away from Alienware. While they do have nice gear and the specs are actually great for my M17xR4, I would recommend others because of that hefty price.

      Also, don't be swayed by thin factor, they freaking breath hot fire. Sso the more bulkier they are, the better the airflow. Combine that with a raised up cooler.

        As with Josh and Dirtbag, been using ASUS G series for years now, wouldn't go any other way.
