Alienware 17 R4 2017 review
I hope someone can help! We have never owned a laptop but have decided to get one but don't want to rush in and we want a half decent one. It will be mainly used for surfing the net, downloading music etc but I think hubby might be interested in gaming too once he starts using it..might even give it a go myself!
After reading the things to look for on this site I found this and thought it was quite good:

My hubby liked this one:

Genuine Windows Vista (R) Home Premium

Are they any good and if so which one would you go for and why? Or is there something that we haven't seen out there which is better in the same price range?
Any help is really appreciated.........
for the money the dell has much better graphics so if its gaming then it wins but dont expect Crysis with all the effects though
