There isn't an Alienware PC out there that could be deemed "worth it". If you spend $1800 on an Alienware PC, you are doing it all wrong.

It's already too much money to pay for a laptop that can game, as most reliable ones range in the lower 1000s as opposed to building a custom desktop, but paying hundreds more than that should definitely be re-considered if it's worth it or not.

A $1000 desktop and $800 laptop would a better investment.

I have the last gen model and it's still pretty beast. Just keep in mind that it's like 12+ pounds and regular laptop bags are usually too small for it.
