    I know I could use more ram, but my laptop runs Skyrim on high just fine. And I didn't spend $2000+ for it, either.

    Also, didn't feel like taking a pic so I took one from the interwebz. That's what it looks like anyway.

    Edit: fixing formatting
    Edit 2: that looks better.

    Buying an Alienware laptop means you're just as retarded as people that buy Apple computers.

    What i was thinking when i clicked,
    For the amount that an Alienware costs you get an ANUS Laptop like Sublime and have money to spare for a HP touchpad.
    or one of the late 2010 early 2011 Android phones which were slashed in price.

    I used to be able to play pretty decent games on netbooks, yeah I'd have to change some of the files so that they could work on less than 670x800 but otherwise, it was Kool and the Gang.
    It's like people don't get that the more you spend on something, the more you realise later that a less expensive computer could pwnt it.

    Found a video game shop that sells old gameboys and segas and shit by the PACK.
    If you wanna make some motherfucking $$$ then you need to three wheel down to gametraders and take all their shit and sll it on ebay (if you don't end up just playing all the games).

    Sold? Sell. I reckon that's half their turn over; just Mario hats and Ocarinas (yeah, actual, glazed ceramic ocarinas so you can be more obnoxious). If you can get over that there is a treasure trove of shit you can flog online.

    Actually, I didn't buy it nor my parents. I got it from the Make a Wish foundation after I was hosptialized. I had a stroke, viral meningitis, and brain abscess last year. I wanted a Alienware Laptop so I can go Full Sail University and they gave me it with a new PC desktop, Wireless Dell printer/scanner/printer, wireless mouse, Alienware headsets, and other things that was unnecessary. I just wanted "A Alienware laptop", I would've been more specific and got the m18x or a desktop or more but, I'm not a greedy bloke am I?

    This not a true high-end machine. Sure, it has the quad-core cpu and 8gigs of ram (as if any game out currently or in the next 2-3 years would need more than six at best).

    BUT LOL THOSE ARE SOME INADEQUATE GRAPHICS! Not bad per se, but in comparison to the cpu and the ram definitely the limiting factor here. Should have gone with a Gf 480 at least. Or better yet, a Radeon HD6950 (or better), especially considering the high native res of the display. Also, what's with the tiny HDD? Ran out of money? I'd have that bitch filled in a weekend's time.

    I can assure you it's all obscure sitcoms and HDTV US crime shows I never actually get around to watch (because I'm already watching The Walking Dead, Hustle, Boardwalk Empire, Breaking Bad (currently no new episodes, so I might actually get stuff done), Wallander (a swedish crime series), Ice Road Truckers and... well, um... NCIS. And I just finished Spooks (aka MI-5). And Torchwood.

    And I watch tons of documentaries of the "disaster porn" variety. I actually don't keep much of the porn I dl, except for the Kink.com stuff which has its own 750GB external HD (currently about half full I guess).

    Man, this is bullshit. This faggot goes to hospital and gets a laptop. Isn't the Make a Wish Foundation for kids with cancer or something?
    You're posting on EDF, how do you even qualify as a kid?

    Make A Wish are too retarded to be handing out tech presents.

    They also should realise that some fuckwit with a brain abscess is not in a good position to choose gaming platforms. He should stick to wanting to go to Disneyland or asking them for strawberry flavoured windows to lick. Anything else gets him a swift kick to the nuts, and a request to rephrase his "Wish".

    It's common knowledge, no source required; it's like when someone says "the sun is hot" - you wouldn't ask them about their source.

    I sense someone was also dumb enough to shill out a gazillion dollars on an overweight laptop with gayass lights on it and some of the shoddiest workmanship you can imagine. Or maybe even a tower with even more gay lights as well as even shoddier workmanship.
