We have seen a number of failed Alienware laptops in our shop. They seem to be having a series of manufacturing problems, despite being purchased by Dell.

Be sure you get the longest possible warranty? And remember it is now a Dell with the contract Dell service techs coming to your house without a clue.

I would go for a high end HP, or a high end Dell or ASUS over the Alienware, dispite the sometimes appealing configurations.
