Hey guys -

I am looking to get a great laptop to use for games, and soundforge work, etc. (I don\'t want to use my music pcs for them).

I was looking at the top of the line alienware laptop, and it looks really good. I was curious if there was any other brand I should be looking at, around the 3k price ?

Thanks!

Eric

Hey Eric.

If money is no object (and good for you if it isn\'t! images/icons/smile.gif ) the Alienware laptop is definitely the one to get. My boss bought a fully loaded one for his son recently, and he mentioned that it runs our upcoming graphics-behemoth FPS \"just great\".

FWIW, I have a an P2.4GHz Dell with 512MB of RAM and an onboard 64MB ATI Mobility Radeon video adapter, and it runs Quake3-powered FPS games beautifully in 32-bit texture mode at 1024x768. It chokes on C&C:Generals, though, so that\'s probably its upper limit.

Thanks Ed for your response.

The only thing that concerns me about it is that there\'s no wireless support built in, and no pccard option. Which means I guess I would have to do a linksys/etc 802.11g adapter. Maybe that\'s not too much of a big deal..
