Well, let's be fair, the MacBook Pro is paddling in a completely different market to the Alienware. However, that doesn't excuse the Alienware for such a piss poor design. My old Dell Latitude brick had better design ethics than this thing. If I'm going to pay obscene amounts of money for a computer then I want one that looks like an obscene amount of work went into it. This might be the laptop equivalent of a Bugatti Veyron but that doesn't excuse it for looking like it was knocked out by Lada.
