you have to see one in action to appreciate it.
My sons dell xps1730 is unreal as a gaming machine
The specs really aren't impressive for a $2500 machine. I like the 1920x1200 display and the ability to swap out the optical drive for more storage, but the rest it is rather bland. It should at least use DDR3 RAM.
Is it just me or does it look exactly like a new macbook?
It's just you, that alienware is huge!
I like that but gaming on a laptop? Nah. My MB's graphics card is more capable than my iMac but I prefer sitting back with a full sized keyboard and mouse than hunched over a laptop (which usually has a display lower than my head level).
If I needed a powerful laptop I'd probably get that over a MBP though. As much as I prefer the MB/P look and the ability to run OSX.
Does look a bit chunky though.
It's about as portable as a 20" iMac and a car battery....
Gaming laptops are made primarily for lan parties IMO. I used to use a dell inspiron with a 256mb video card and I would take it to friends houses all the time and lan. It is much easier than taking a desktop with you everywhere and all the cables that go with it. It is also convenient if you like to game on your couch or bed lol.
That said Alienware overprices their stuff too much and you are better off buying a sager or acer gaming laptop.
It DOES look very MB-inspired...
It is absolutely not MacBook inspired, the M15x has been out since late 2007 and the design hasn't changed at all, save for a new option for the exterior of the case and fixing a design flaw that caused the hinge to tear.
I was strongly considering this laptop for purchase at one point but it hasn't been updated at all in a long time except for the graphics card, and still relies on old technology.
haha, the first laptop i ever bought was actually an alienware. but, considering it has almost NO laptop parts, you could not use it as a real laptop. i ended up selling it (battery lasted 5 minutes) and will never buy an alienware again
Some interesting trade offs. But no, I dont think it was MBP inspired. I think the new macbook pro looks like a lot of HP computers, except its aluminum instead of painted plastic. I like the looks of this 17" Matte MBP with the alumium bezel... although with white keys would be nice.
Not to mention this Alienware looks like Fat Albert.
While you might think that but reallity is if you compare it with their other laptops they done in the past this fits in line with those. Alienware had a design a lot like the current macbooks before the macbooks came out.
This seems to fit more in line with alienware designs and not as radical of a change like apple did in its laptops.
