    Default Laptop Upgrade Pains

    New to the forum, so minimal roasting please..

    I am stuck tyring to figure out what to upgrade to. My current machine is great, I just want more.
    Running an Alienware 17 wish some nice mods, 32gb ram, 256 ssd, 1tb hdd, gtx860m bla bla..

    It took me a week to find a price and spec for the latest Alienware 17 with external graphics accelerator, Dell in 3 countries couldnt help, but the legends at Evetech sorted a price out in a day.

    So my question is, from my current setup, to the R61k latest machine, how much difference in performance do you think I can expect?
    And would I be able to sell my current machine for at least around R30k? R37k new and 15-20k upgrades.

    Thanks all.

    Ha ha, thanks man..

    Buying an Alienware was a dream for many years, then eventually managed to justify the spend, now I just want all out madness...

    Not sure if you have seen this?

    This machine is a beast, but I cannot justify over R100k for a laptop.. Some awesome features on it however I hope more gaming laptop manufacturers take on board.
    Duel SLI capability, normal keyboard style keys.. Very cool..
