    Heard from some that they're dope, and from others that they're shite? Dunno. However, a client needs a laptop with at least 3.2Ghz and it has to be HT. I have no idea what to suggest to them.

    It's actually cheaper and better to build your own.

    Tell him to give you the money for the alienware.
    Buy a dell with the same specs.
    Give him the dell.
    Keep half the money.

    Alienwares are expensive/overpriced, but note that he's talking about laptops and not desktops, where alienware uses desktop parts for their laptops.

    <!--- Begin sackride.


    The new Toshiba laptops have >3.2Ghz with HT. My Satellite is 3.0Ghz HT and it's 2-years plus old. Works great.


    // End sackride. --->

    Get a intel centrino. There faster even though they have a lower clock speed than a P4

    Where else can you get a laptop with replaceable/upgradeable everything? Your video card gets outdated - open that sucker up and swap it out! :bigthumb:

    If you know what your doing go buy a barebones Laptop form newegg and wait for the deals. It might take awhile but if you wait for deals you will save sooo much money.

    Go to http://www.powernotebooks.com

    I know it's a cheesy God-oriented website, but they have high quality products for a good price. It's buying the same hardware without paying for the name and outrageous marketing campaigns of other brands.
