Can someone explain to me why alienware is garbage

Outside of the obvious being able to make a better one on your own.

I've only ever wanted one because of the case space/being able to put all my own stuff in it but I'm not gonna pay 2k for sparkly generic tier laptops.

You store things in your tower case?

I have some good parts but I don't need a desktop, I need a laptop, or rather I need a portable desktop. Like the 18's case is ideal since I'm going to school for art/graphic-design/programming and I also currently work doing that. But the case is bad since it's also apparently the source of the 18's sleep mode crashes.

Really I've been looking for something that doesn't cost too much that I can switch the parts out to w/o much difficulty. And I'd always heard ware was bad but I could never think of any reason outside of the obvious fact that you can make a better comp with much less performance issues on your own for way less.

Thought some here might have experience w/ them and be able to tell me more.

Build a midtower; problem solved. Everything they offer can be found for much cheaper elsewhere, of equal or sometimes better quality.

Why did you ask here? You're gonna get troll responses half the time on this board.
