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.

I refuse to believe you made this thread from that device as we all know no AlienWare computer has ever worked for anyone anywhere
Oh But I have made this thread with the laptop and my reply right now.

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.

Too bad the only Game that needs a top end PC is Crysis.
like i said before i will say it again.
BUT AN ANUS E-PC
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.
