"i'd like to see a mac compete against this thing!!!!"5.0 starson by iheartnysnowboarding
Pros: great graphics, amazing speed, incomparable to any other laptop iv'e ever owned, bad ass looking externals, bad ass preforming internals.
Cons: a bit heavy... but thats it!
Summary: this computer is truly a god sent. now let it be known that i'm not a hard core gamer
(even in the slightest sense of the term. i mean dont get me wrong i enjoy a little MW2 on xbox but thats all.). I do however know my way around a computer and I edit and publish videos. on my old computer(2005 hp pavilion) i couldn't create a video in less than ten hours. then it took over a day to convert it to my desired format. i couldn't have that anymore. so, i saved up my pennies and looked for the most powerful computer i could find. i was originally going to just build myself a desktop. i had all the components i wanted and i was almost ready to order when it occurred to me that i should look into a gaming laptop for my work because i knew they were very well built. so i googled "gaming laptop" and the first link that popped up was alienware. that is when i changed my mind. when i was just playing around with the customization of the system. I found that everything that was in my cart for my 'dream system', i could put it into the laptop. so i went and put in a core i7 processor, 8gbs ddr3 RAM, and an intel solid state drive. the total came to be just about what the desktop would have been. i ended up ordering my new alienware M14x that day along with pinnical movie editor, and i never looked back.
