Why not spend $1,400 for a top of the line Desktop and $1,000 on a laptop...
You need only two tools in life: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the duct tape.

Yes the m18x is worth it. You could have probably gotten a better discount by haggling on the phone with a rep.

m18x is an awesome laptop. I have a m17x and i wish i had a m18x instead. It has an anodized aluminum case. The thing is built like a sherman tank. Its extremely classy and is definitely something cool to look at with all the lighting controls. Also, with the 7970m Crossfire, you would easily have a better computer than most users here. Even with the lowest ivy bridge cpu (which is all you're gona need gaming-wise), you'd still have one hell of a beast with those GPUs.

If you can, i would get the lowest possible RAM and cheapest HDD available from Dell (to knock off some $$ from the price) and upgrade it yourself for half the price.

Alienware laptops are typically not overpriced, they're just expensive. Every gaming laptop out there is expensive. Currently Sager doesn't have anything that can compete with the M18x.

Decent price for that laptop with those GPUs. Better lift some weights, it's gonna be huge.

I guess if you have the money it's worth it... But to me it doesn't seem like the difference between 7970m and 2x 7970m is worth $1000 (for the np9170 vs m18x).
