New Dell Laptop: What to get?
I haven't built or purchased a new computer in almost 4.5 years and am a bit out of the loop. I want to purchase a Dell (or Alienware if necessary) laptop that will allow me to play higher end games like Far Cry 2, Crysis, Half Life Episode 3, and anything else intensive coming down the pike. I'd like to keep the overall pricetag between $1200-2000.
What are the key things to be looking for? Can a high end Dell XPS Notebook (around $2000) handle these games, or would I be wasting the extra $800 compared to the $1200 version?
Any suggestions are much appreciated! Thanks.
