    Good thread ..

    My company laptop (18" Qosmio) is two years old .. and getting too slow for current demands (rendering HD video).

    I'm on a mission to find the fastest laptop within a reasonable price limit .. I don't think my boss will sign off on more than $3k. Maybe $4k if I can really justify it. Needs to be a laptop, since I work wherever the wind takes me.

    Something reliable would be nice too -- I've had my current laptop in pieces several times, there is so much solder mess inside now, it would give a hardware engineer nightmares for weeks!

    We'll see about the Alienware reliability but something like this would definitely have the horsepower to do what you need.

    I can't wait to start doing some HD video editing myself.

    That laptop is amazing! I had an M9700 a few years ago and it was awesome.

    Yeah, I've heard great things about Alienware laptops, but I not sure that a hardcore gaming laptop will go down too well in accounting. Having said that, I suppose a Qosmio is also marketed as a gaming laptop Click here to enlarge

    I highly recommend Adobe After Effects & Premiere Pro for HD video, btw. It's flexibility and ease of use (once you get the hang of the basics) will blow you away ..

    Why not? Hardware is hardware, you want the best possible. Really, a lot overlaps. You want ram and processing power for gaming, well, you would want it for intense office work as well.

    Thanks, I'll try this first. I'm new to video editing so we will see. I have been getting by with windows movie maker.

    Vegas is probably the easiest if premier is too confusing, very easy layout and some advanced tools in a very simple user interface Click here to enlarge

    Premier I find can be intimidating at times.

    and yes, the M9700 was my best laptop...until it died.

    p.s. sticky -if you haven't already done so, get the 3yr warranty (4yr if they have it?)

    I just got one year, I don't keep hardware for very long. If it breaks I'll pay to fix it or upgrade again Click here to enlarge

    Damn it, this sounds so awesome:

    As Alienware's flagship laptop, the M18x – which is also dubbed the "Most Powerful 18-inch Gaming Laptop in the Universe" – will be a true desktop replacement. It is perfect for gamers who want to compromise nothing for blistering frame rates and full immersion in the gaming experience. With Wireless HD and 3D options, as well as HDMI-in, the M18x allows gamers a no-holds-barred gaming machine capable of meeting even the most grueling demands of today's gamer, delivering gaming content when and where gamers need it.
    Anyone want a brand new M-17X? Few hundred off?

    dude, cancel it. when the UPS guy comes, return to sender.

    edit: that won't help because they'll have the M9000x by the time you get yours Click here to enlarge

    You can't keep up with technology, even if you work for the companies T_T

    I know I can't keep up with technology but a new model coming out when I still haven't even received the one I ordered is BS.

    I want the M18X, this is your fault.

    So as it turns out, I have 21 days to return my laptop! Yes! So, all is not lost and I can still get the M18X.

    DarkPhantom, the hit has been called off.

    ^ That was a joke.
