Alienware used to be one of those brands you spoke of in hushed tones. “Hey, check out that dude, he’s got an Alienware!” “He must be loaded!” And so on… But then Alienware sold out to Dell and while they still make ok products, they seem to have lost their edge. That’s ok though, others will take their place (thinking of Razer, for example). And the upshot is that prices on Alienware laptops are not what they used to be. Take the M14x pictured above. It’s got a Core i7-2670QM 2.2GHz Quad-core CPU with a 3GB GeForce GT 555M graphics card, 6GB RAM, and a 750GB 7200RPM Hard Drive. Usually this would be $1,399, but after today’s $250 rebate, it’s $1,149. Shipped, of course, free of charge.
