Here is a question that came to mind when I was reading the new Computer Shopper mag. in the airplane this week... Which one would you mind spending your money on now a day, a Gaming Desktop Computer or a Gaming Laptop Computer? They showed 4 gaming laptops that were on the market and how they did to each other on playing F.E.A.R. and Company of Hero's. The pricing on the laptops were extremely high to what I would spend on anything that nature... The one that won it was the Alienware Area 51 m9750 with : 2.33 GHz Core duo T7600 2 GB DDR2 Two 160 (320)GB Hard Drives "RAID" Double Layer DVD RW 17in TFT (1920x1200) Two nVidia GeForce Go 7950 GTX (512mb) Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 Priced at *$4,488 Now, to me thats to much to pay for a computer... Yeah, its Alienware, but I could build 3 desktops for that much. So my questions are these... Why would you need something like this when you have that desktop at 3 grand less? And, for whom would be the "control group" that they are looking at?
