Hey guys, really need some help here..I took RcTruckers advice and looked into the Dell Inspirion E1705 and suped it up alot, Pretty much got the best of everything I could (Processor, Memory, Hard drive, video card, the works...) plus a 4 year warrantly and T.V. tuner and the price came to 2,335. I also looked at the Alienware Aurora m7700 (the blue one) dubbed the gaming laptop and the baseprice for it, with the most basic stuff and no addition upgrades is 2300. My question is, with both laptops the same price, which computer is more powerfull and better for gaming.. Here the stats

Dell Inspirion E1705:
Processor - Intel® Core™ Duo Processor T2600 (2.16GHz/667MHz FSB)
Memory - 2GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 667MHz
HardDrive - 60GB 7200RPM SATA Hard Drive
VideoCard - 256MB NVIDIA® GeForce™ Go 7900 GS videocard

Alienware Aurora m7700:
Processor - AMD Athlonâ„¢ 64 3200+ with HyperTransport Technology
Memory - 512MB Dual Channel DDR SO-DIMM at 400MHz - 2 x 256MB
HardDrive - 60GB 5400 RPM SATA with NCQ
Video Card 256MB NVidia® GeForce™ Go 6800

I think those are all the stats you need to know. Like I said, both are the same price except the Dell comes with the 4 year warranty in the price, T.V. Tuner, Microsoft Trip, and a couple of other goodies, and the Alienware laptop is 2300 with just the baseprice, not including any upgrades for the processor,memory,videocard etc....

What should i buy?? I know the Dell comp is probably the better deal w/ the warranty but which comp is the fastest?? If I am reading the numbers right I think the Dell would be faster and better..but I am not sure. Any help would be appreciated.

That is why I would pick the first one.

Could I get any better of a notebook performance wise for under 2400 than the dell??! Ive checked around and it seems like this is one hell of a deal!

The Alienware has a faster processor but the Dell is faster everywhere else and the difference in processor is not big enough between the two listed to be worth cutting the other areas (RAM, HD, vid card) so I would say the Dell.

The Dell does seem like a good deal for a Laptop.

The Better graphics card and big RAM advantage mean the Dell is the sensible choice

I agree.....you can probably build your own killer computer for $2000 or under.....get you some nice graphic cards, a fast processor....I saw a really sweet 21" screen that would be killer for playing games. Build it yourself for much less is my motto.

I'd go with the Dell, I'm not much of a gamer but those specs look real good for the price. And I've had a Dell for like 10 years that still works as good as when we got it (not that much will run on it anymore). Plus the customer service is the best I've ever experienced. They have a very good company.
