    Hey that's not a bad price at all. But keep in mind that Alienware's customer support has deteriorated over the years, not the least due to them being owned by Dell. I'd suggest the Zatoichi from www.killernotebooks.com. Sure, it's a Turion X2 but you can get a custom skin on it, as well as a bigger HDD for a lower price than the Alienware. Give it a shot.
