Too many HP and Compaq cry babies around also, So many THANK'S for the real help which is what the forums should be about. Later!!
I'm not really aware of your whole situation, but as a long time Alienware customer and forum traveler, I've had to develop a thick skin when it comes to Alienware haters and bashers.
I can only imagine it's worse if you have an Alienware that isn't primarily designed for gaming.
I've noticed that most bashers don't own, or have any experience with Alienware products, and their main motivation is to try to believe their beige box Dell, hp, compaq... is just as good as an Alienware. This is simply not true.
I remember being over at Dell's forums, I showed a bunch of them that not only did Alienware outperform the XPS thing, it was also less expensive for the same configuration. I then pointed out that Dell doesn't use fully featured motherboards as they have theirs rewired so you can only upgrade some components through Dell. The guy told me that wasn't true, that Dell uses the same motherboard as AW, but they had to cut one end off in order to fit it in the XPS case... LOL!!!
I hope you reconsider leaving, and see these basher gamer boys as the insecure wannabe's they are. You should be proud to be an informed consumer that bought the machine that was built for your needs rather than someone that has a powerhouse for word processing.
