and one more thing. My Astro A50 headset should work with most gaming laptops right?

You should find the space and save a thousand dollars while also having something that isn't counter-intuitive to gaming


How is it counter intuitive? But also i just want a laptop for now be able to bring it to school for projects and travel with it. When i'm older and move out then i'll get a desktop, but for now im getting a laptop. So right now i just want advice on THIS. not whether or not to get a desktop. And yes i know they are better and more easily upgradeable


Don't expect to easily transport it with school books and whatnot. Alienware 17" is a large, heavy beast.

It's not like a 17" laptop is hard to transport. It doesn't even weigh that much and there are plenty of bags that can carry it. Hell I carry a 17" laptop, a laptop cooler, an external drive, my astro headset, 3ds, psp and sometimes a 360 and still have room to spare. It's just about finding a bag to accommodate the size.

This is a serious question.

Have you ever knocked someone over by turning too quickly on a crowded sidewalk?

People dont realize that alienware buyers dont want to mess with building their own and have the money to spend on them.

If you really require a laptop. Have you checked those clevo laptops or something? I think you could customise them depending on the seller. Its barebones and cost a whole lot cheaper than alienware.

If you could really avoid it then for the love of God! build a PC. I have no regrets with mine even though I only went on to the store and gave them my budget and asked them to change some parts.

I didn't enjoy carrying my 17" laptop + three 400+ page textbooks on my walks around campus my freshman year.

I guess b/c you don't mind it he shouldn't give it any thought then. Your experience is exactly what everyone else's is. /sarcasm

Just giving him something to think about.
