    I plan on getting this in a few months after I get a job, I need something that is fast and can render 3d animations and play games decently. Here's the link and here are the specs

    I just bought an Alienware a couple weeks back and truthfully, it rocks as far as gaming. Much heavier though and fairly expensive.

    That really doesn't answer my question.

    Are you going to be traveling a lot with this laptop? Honestly If you spend this much on a Gaming PC it will just blow you away! It's in no way bad but for that price you can get a gaming rig that is far much better for gaming! Playing a FPS game on a 17 screen with crap speakers is just not worth it with this price. Spend a 1500 on a great PC, the spend the rest on a good surround sound system and good size monitor. Though if this is going to be more then a gaming machine or traveling a lot then Yes it's great but just over priced.

    You dont think 9.5 lbs is a lot but its a bitch to deal with caring that thing. I highly recommend a really good book bag for that thing as well. If you do decide to buy this laptop I highly recommend Everki Black Beacon Laptop Backpack.These are one of the best for these type of laptops and protects it from any drops weather proof and wont kill your arms caring this thing, It's perfect for gaming laptops.

    My current laptop is uber heavy and I am used to carrying it. I much prefer the portability of a laptop over a tower.

    If you are waiting a few months anyway, then shop around a bit more and don't settle on any particular brand. Computer hardware sales are in a slump right now, and the prices are going to come down quite a bit.

    I like that laptop, especially at that price. A similar MSI system is $400 more from what I can tell.

    I am This is just one I have my sights set on right now. Don I am glad you told me to check out Asus in that other thread, they have almost the same specs as an Alienware but are hundreds cheaper.
