Long-time lurker here coming out of the woodwork. Been browsing the side since early Fall, debating whether or not to pick up an Alienware. The cost had been a factor, but the specs were a big selling point. Since the price jump, I've left Alienware out of the picture and had been looking at Sagers and even Toshibas (altho' their graphic card offerings are rather slim
I'd kept this post in mind and am sorely tempted to make an offer. It just seems too good to be true.
I'm wondering, what sort of deal did you have in mind? Here, I'm an unknown, having lurked only and not posted at all before now (but I do have references- http://heatware.com/eval.php?id=520
) My question is how would you propose the trade? $2500 + shipping is a lot of money. And while I've bought the current laptop I'm using online, it was off the Anandtech forums with an established trader with a record (Heatware and eBay feedback). Here, I don't know anyone, so I'm somewhat leery of sending out $2500 to someone I don't know. I'm not saying that you're a bad person (if I thought so, I wouldn't bother
) But it *is* the internet, and being as such, I don't trust anyone at first.
If your Area 51-m is still available, I'm interested. But before I look further into ways of putting together the money, I wanted to check out what sort of plan you had for the transaction.

But now that I finally registered (had a bit of a problem awhile back trying to register as my provider'd been black-listed by the forums), hopefully I'll be around a bit more and *hopefully* be one of the few, the proud, the Alienware owners
