Yes they are great laptops, just a little overpriced.

And their support is AWESOME, my dad has an Alienware laptop and he had one issue and he got support instantly.

Yes, I think they are a little over priced, but IMO they are the best laptops around. If your going to buy a laptop, you might as well buy the best of the best, because what you buy, is what your stuck with when it comes to laptops. There is no pulling out the CPU and slapping in a new one. So its probably much better to spend $3000 on a Top of the Line laptop, that will last you a good 3 or 4 years, than to spend $2000 on a laptop at CompUSA, that barly run's Microsoft word in 2 years time.
