What are you smoking? I just put it together and its $1,948.00, not only that but the 15.4" screen is lower resolution. 1280x768 for the Alienware, vs 1440x900 for the Mac.
And what about battery life? I get 6 hours, that thing gets like 4. What about size and weight?
You're forgetting the DVD writer also.
And the Bluetooth adapter.
That and you have to use Windows, lol.
And yeah, if you don't go to the education store (where you buy Macs for cheaper and they never ask for proof that you go to a college
) they are cheaper, so that is why it was $2299. It would've been $1999 :P
