I love Alienware but I must admit from thespecs I woiuld buy the ASUS.The hard drives don't really come into it anyway because as soon as you can you will upgrade it to SSD for the extra speed. I would see what that option would cost extra now.

thanks, so you think its better value?

Some people are telling me asus laptops arent very good though??

Generally ASUS make very good quality items. I have used amny of their motherboards and they were excellent. You can't fault Dell's service though if you have any problems(alienware)

My local (very good) repair shop says Asus and Toshiba are the brands he finds most reliable and easy to get spares. I go along with the Asus (although I recently bought a Toshiba L650 -10G - lower spec at half your budget)

yes i have an ASUS motherboard in my PC. Which has stopped working (dont no what the problem is, its not the motherboard anyway, but thats in a different thread)

Ok so ASUS it is then :)
Will the resolution not make a difference?
And will it be able to play all the latest and future games in High graphics?
