A similar machine from Falcon Northwest is about $3,500...hehe...and y do people buy overpriced machines from Alienware and Falcon NW again?
nice machine, but for the ppl who buy the expensive ones like me its just that sometimes one may want to have the parts of the laptop they cannot or do not want to paint themselves painted and look cool, while the components, you can upgrade down the line if you feel like it. Got my laptop for 2600, not too bad painted. lasted me since the CL50 days, got it upgraded to a CL56, another benefit of going with voodoo.
The cpu and ram though... not so much of a big boost from getting the top of the line, still being held back by the same video card. The ram might be of use if you are working with large photoshop files though, other than that, its kind of a waste.
Different strokes for different folks.
