    Wow very cool and can it come with a bigger SSD than 64 gb or does that push the cost up a bit?

    How does the 3d perform with games and movies?

    Ooh that's pretty awesome. Why on earth would he have bought a laptop like that and only use it once?

    Im sure it can but this one is already spec'd out, you could obviously go and buy a bigger one yourself and pop it in.

    Damn, must be really wealthy to buy two laptops that most of us here can but dream of having, just so he can pick between them

    I always thought Dell and Alienware were rivals? But then again I dont know much about PC's.

    When I first got my laptop Dell XPS L702X, meant to be a beast PC or so i though. Can't even run games at 1080...nee man.
