You know... I went to skip this one since I have no 7700 yet, but I just wanted to share my personal inner turmoil with you.
I did a little research between the 7700 and a top o the line XPS, and being new to the laptop scene I left it at that. (I know, your thinking XPS? They have like the best rating on the market, skewed I know, and I get like a 20% discount for being a UNM student.) After seeing that this was a good price point for the tech I went with my Alienware. So the first thing that happens is I get my GMail confirmation and there are a few links from google about the competition, but I ignore them cause I am now an Alienware owner. A few days someone else says I paid too much cause I am an Alienware owner, and that I need to check out VoodooPC. I now start my mission, and to make a long story, even longer, I checked out everything I could find a link too and bottom line:
All Lappy's have their issues, all have some decent pricing, but Alienware has great tech and good pricing. Don't get cold feet, you are getting one if not the best laptop for the money.
I got Phase 4 BTW....!!!
