Did Alienware just make the first 15 inch notebook that is comparable if not substantially more impressive than the 15 inch MBP? Here is the link to the new M15X. There are several levels of specifications and it is possible to get this laptop for under $2K, but on the other end of the spectrum this item can be upgraded with items we MBP fans can only dream of (minus OSX of course). Now I know you will say alienware sucks, I have used a friends and it did seem bad but this machine looks amazing. Here are some items that the 15 inch MBP is missing 1. 1920x1200 LCD (not LED-tear) 2. Blu-ray drive with read and write (optional) 3. up to Intel Penryn extreme 2.8 ghz processor 4. 1 gig Intel Turbo Memory 5. 64 gig Solid State drive 6. 320 gig 5400 RPM hardrive 7. Ability to have 2 200 gig 7200 RPM hardrives (MBP u can have one unless u void ur warranty and replace the CD drive with a hardrive) 8. 160 gig hybrid hardrive with 256 megs flash 9. Illuminated LCD keyboard 10. Creative X-Fi Audio card for excellent sound output 11. Smart bay allowing either second hardrive, blu-ray drive, or additional battery for more than 6 hours of battery life. and of course 12. 8800 GTX 512 megs !!!!!!!!
