Actually I am not a dude haha, but aside from that I was thinking 9100 instead of XPS. Main difference is the 3.4 on the XPS instead of 3.2. Before the new 9800 came out I could get one for $2000 and now its around $2200-$2300. The case is just a case to me and its no big deal. A case isn't worth the extra $$ when eventually you will get a new one. I don't run around to lans all that much so I don't need to show off or something. My laptop could be in a card board box for all I care. I do sometimes go to lans, but I go with friends and we don't go to show off our PCs. Yes the aluminum is good for durability and such, but I have a Dell now and its fine. However, the XPS and 9100 are too thick for my taste, so I won't be getting one of those. BTW I am not knocking AW, I've never owned one so I can't judge, but for the money that I would spend they are to much for what I can get elsewhere is my point. If I had alot of money to blow then I would get one, but when I go hmmmm $1000 what could I do with that, that is like 2/3's of the price of my desktop I want to build.............I need to stop editing this post
