Agreed; the only Alienware worth getting is the m11x.

Any way,They are now sold out. Does any one know a good place to look for one ?

I'm thinking of just going with the ASUS G73JW-A1... I just have a couple of questions before I do.
1. How is the backpack and mouse that comes with it ?
2. Is the Nvidia GTX 460M better than the ATI 5870 ? Pros/Cons
3. Are they any thing that I need to know about Asus ? Common problems
4. How is the build quality ?
5. Are they a newer version coming out any time soon ?

Sorry for all the questions, I just want to make sure before I drop $1500.00 on a laptop

I'm thinking of just going with the ASUS G73JW-A1... I just have a couple of questions before I do. I'd hope so since we were unanimous lol
1. How is the backpack and mouse that comes with it ? Unknown
2. Is the Nvidia GTX 460M better than the ATI 5870 ? Pros/Cons They are both close performance wise. No real cons or pros, both are great.
3. Are they any thing that I need to know about Asus ? Common problems ASUS is a godly brand common problems are almost non existent.
4. How is the build quality ? Once again... It's ASUS.
5. Are they a newer version coming out any time soon ? No this is all pretty new hardware and there isn't anything planned to replace it till late this year.

Yeah, I haven't really read alot of good things on Alienware. I think I was more interested in the looks and their cooling system more than any thing. It's pretty flashy...lol
Thanks for responding to my questions....

Well don't worry. The pics don't do the G justice. It's a gorgeous machine.
