a friend told me Alienware was "good" and "better than a Dell" .. So I went with it. I also heard it mentioned around with high regards other times

Alienware is one of the best for pre-built conputers. Falcon Northwest, and Voodoo PC ar also good companies. Sager has some nice notebooks too.

Thank you for your post, for some of the members here who do not understand why we flame(maybe I should use a nicer word) them for considering buying an Alienware.

As for laptops(windows based), I would get a Voodoo, or a Dell. But really, for people who needs a laptop besides for gaming, a Mac would get a good idea. But they are a bit pricey depending on what you want to get.
