Default Best company to buy a laptop from for $2,500

Ok i want to buy a laptop for $2,500; maybe $3,000 for myself from the best company (best bang for buck) because im out alot with my friends and im barley home anymore. I want to be able to hook right up into their router and play instead of going to home to play on my pos system. Any ideas?

alienware has some nice setups - you'll have to check it out though... things can get pretty pricy

For the money you should definetly go with a XPS...
Wait for a nice online dell coupon to come out and use that.
I have seen them ordered for less than $1500 dollars.

Dell is only bad because you can't upgrade them.

You never upgrade a laptop anyways.

Therefore, Dell is an option.

I would pick Alienware over Dell though, if the price is right.

Acer also makes very good laptops.
