Hi AlienWare have the mx11 base model for £649. Am in the market for a high end ish laptop and just wonder if its worth it or good value for money. I also think the 11inch screen is 2 small. The mx15 is £999 but for that money I think I'd rather bite the bullet and get a Mac with edu discount. Any opinions or advice are welcome.

Rumours I heard on a few forums are that these days, no.

They used to be the "best" until bought out by Dell apparantly.

They've always been over priced.

nope way overpriced, your paying for the brand name, might aswell buy a dell since are owned by same people

They are fairly good, but you're mainly paying for the fancy design and the lights. You can definitely get more for your money. I'd get a mac over one, but then people will argue mac's aren't great value for money either. In terms of spec you could probably get something better than a mac and an alienware for that price range, because for both of those you're paying for the name, styling etc.
