Alienware? Avoid at all costs. Major money for a flashy case and a mediocre computer.

If you want an gaming lappy, look at these places (you'll have to Google them):
Sager
ProStar
HP
Dell 9300, XPS (their lappys ain't bad)
Velocity Micro
ABS
Falcon Northwest
Hypersonic-PC
Toshiba
Voodoo
Vicious PC

Im done with laptops..mine gets so hot in only 30 minutes that It starts freezing and going very slow..Do you have any ideas on a computer that i can get for gaming?..Therefore i can use my laptop for the internet(AIM,Surfing the internet, etc.) while using the desktop to play games...I dont really want to spend more then 1,000 since I'm going to be buying the computer myself.

If you need any help, feel free to instant message me too. Building your own PC is a lot easier than you'd think.
