I've been looking at their desktops, specifically the x51, and they don't seem nearly as overpriced as their laptops.

In the opinion of much more informed PC gamers, how is the x51 for its price?

The x51's case is horrible though. It can't fit a very large graphics card, and the ventilation is about on par with an xbox 360. And that thing's ventilation is HORRIBLE

This thread actually made me look at alienware's site, it does look like a slimline PC. 700 for an i3 build is pretty laughable.

I was browsing others as well, how's this for a prebuilt? Honestly not good with pricing estimates... how will this hold up?

It is not that they are bad or anything, it is just that thy premium they charge is really unnecessary.

I mean, the components are the exact same (sometimes inferior) to the ones that you would pick yourself. Why would you pay 40% extra for the exact same thing?

If you are so afraid to put something together yourself (*you shouldnt be) then just go to one of those shops that charge a fee to put it together.

TC, why not take the plunge and build one yourself? Or talk to a friend and get him to build it for you.

Well, do you guys know of any sites where you can customize your build, and have it built and shipped to you?
