I wouldn't recommend a Dell, ever. I've had nothing but problems with Dell's, no matter how "good" they were.

Me and my friends and family all use Asus, and none of us have ever had problems, and they're very nice, and really not too expensive.


But I guess it depends on what you're going to be doing on it. Dell laptops are horrible for most gaming, but if it's for something like school or facebooking, IM, etc, then I guess if the price is nice, Dell would be okay. But if you're going to be gaming, Asus is a good choice.

I don't think they sell their products on their website. Try Best Buy, Amazon or some other site that sells them. o:

And yeah the website is a bit laggy for me ;o;

Since the website is working better now

ASUS - Notebooks- ASUS G74SX

Is the laptop I have. It's pretty nice. So I would go with your first Asus choice. I NEVER lag unless my internet is being crappy.

Alienware, I had one for a good 5 to 6 years, it was a pre-Dell one. But, the bad thing about Alienware is that you can't take anything out of it. If your video card or anything breaks or if you want to upgrade things in it, you'd have to get a new laptop. I'm not sure if it's different now since it was bought by Dell.

I can't say anything about Acer, I've never had one, and my friend had one and traded it in because it was too slow.

Your first Asus option is $1,099.99. That's pretty much the same thing I have, it just looks a little different. o:

just a warning about alienware. they tend to use lower quality/refurbished parts and charge you a lot more than they're worth.

i don't know much about their laptops, but i've worked with a number of their pcs.

I'm pretty sure he's talking about in general. ASUS makes quality products all around. If anything, I would consider ASUS or MSI before even looking at Alienware.

well if you guys can't find any Nvidia 500 Series then very well...
try to find me a 600 Series then...

I'm just not those type of People who keep up with the latest Tech...

just because it new does not make it better...
at least not always...
to me, I find it as a Open Beta for people to test on.
like the PS Vita. I think it still in Open Beta.

it will be finish in these types

1) Price is Drop
2) wait for about a year or 2
cuz at the time there will be plenty of game for you to play, you should get the most out of you Software...
and of course, Price Drop ...
3) wait for a Redesign or upgrade whatever for the Vita and of course....Price Drop... =/

just like how Nintendo is now making a Redesign for the 3DS or something...
and what do you know.... PRICE DROP!

right o.o ?

anyway, you see where I'm going at with this ?

I know what you mean. I upgraded my iPhone, and next week they announced a new one. I decided then that I would only get new things if my old one broke, unless they come out with say... A new Xbox and it has games I want to play for the new one only. Or there's amazing new features on it.

Well I know what you mean by newer isn't always better but that isn't always the case in the PC hardware world. If you're not really upgrading hardware, then future-proofing is really your best choice.

As of now, the Ivy bridge and the Radeon HD 7000 and Nvidia GTX 600 series is coming to laptops. They're still kinda in the early stages but they consume less power and give better performance.

Tbh, most $600+ laptops will play perfect world fine unless it's crappy onboard intel graphics.
