lol i bet you're loving the 3 hour battery life too

It's a sick laptop... I'm all for function over form though, when it comes to computers... I have a SMALL Sony Vaio and this massive Dell Inspiron 9300 with 19" widescreen... And I'd take this Dell any day, even if I had to tote it around. There's a larger battery, larger screen, more functional keyboard, faster processor(generally), INTERNAL optical drive(external ones are a PITA), REAL video card, darn-near silent, larger hard-drive, etc... You might not think that the big screen is worth the extra size, but I've got 1920x1200 to work with... Much more productive... Lol but yeah... The Alienware laptop is MAD nice... Battery life just sucks... That's pretty much the only thing I noticed with my friend's...

TRB, I don't know how well you'll be doing with Halo on the integrated graphics though

Radeon X300 in mine All I play is CS, and I get 80+fps at 1920x1200... lol I love it

Tragic, isn't it... Alienware's CS was top notch... Dell is alright but not great in terms of customer service...

...I was mad when I heard...

For whoever asked about the thickness, .75 inches according to their site, I have yet to measure it.

as for the graphics not being capable of halo, im pretty sure it can handle it, last I knew the graphics card that this comes with is second to the nvidia (sp). I may be wrong though so far the graphics seem supurb.

with the 9 cell batt that I added I can get close to the 3 hours they claim.

on the size i was close enough .... bleh with added graphics ... like playing halo .. your battery life will go down ... but i'd imagine your pc being plugged in anyways ....

I believe your laptop could handle it ... even if it couldn't you could always switch the rendering options to a bit lower ...

it cost more then I would have paid, and I dont think my boss knows how much that is yet. I just sit and wait until he gets my account statement.
