M 15x, kinda old now but still upgradable. Heavy! This version of the i7 gets HOT! I actually under clocked the cpu by 10% cause of the heat. The gpu is old and suffecient to run wow and older games but if you want to play the newest games you'll have to upgrade the gpu. I have 6gb ram and was thinking of upping it to 8gb-the max. It has 2 slots for ram. Upgrading is easy cause the case is engineered for it. It's just expensive! Display is the bomb! High definition. Like all laptops the mouse sucks. You can even upgrade the DVD player to a blu-ray.

Great for gaming and perfect for video playback. Even the speakers on this laptop are awesome. I've never had a laptop with the capabilities of this. A bit bulky for getting around, but you always have to make that sacrifice for a gaming laptop. And the 15" screen is crisp and clear. Alienware is always top-notch for gaming. They are my go-to.

Dont' buy alienware. There is a bug when you restore the operating system or reinstall it, the command center that lights the keys and touch buttons do not light anymore and Dell will charge you $500 for reinstalling them. It is almost like a manitenance scam, if not a real clever scam. Beware.
