no but they are extremly pricy and probally not worth it, better and alot cheaper just to have a friend get the parts you need and put it together

they are pointless, basically just a big gaming system. You can build your own with better parts cheaper.

Well I'm looking around for a new box and haven't decided if I should build one or not. Just been scoping out brand names like Alienware to get some ideas. Cool shit but damn expensive.

I like Dell. I haven't been able to freeze one up yet! Dell is going to be making a gaming computer soon that is awesome. I read about it earlier this week. I can't find the link but you could probably get it from Dells site.

Thanks for the link Chris.

Just trying to figure out what to do. I've got my travel bonus coming in next week and I'm going to have some extra money to spend so among other things I need to get a new computer for the house. With my laptop crapped out right now I've contemplated just getting a laptop that I could game with and selling my old laptop once I get it fixed. Decisions

Didn't know you guys were talking about laptops...

Gonna drop a pretty penny for a gaming laptop, but it would be nice. I've contemplated getting a good laptop for when I'm at the university, but I'd rather spend money on the car

Sorry, I was talking about laptops but I've gone on to look at some of there desktops as well and all I can say is DAYUM!

Since I got my first laptop recently I'm kinda hooked on being portable and when my desktop modem crapped out I used the laptop exclusively. Picked up a wireless B card and a router/access point and I'd go to town on the internet whenever I went over to a friends that had broadband. It was slick being out by the car and surfing the internet and downloading music and stuff off of Kazaa. But now that my laptop is down I see how much my desktop needs to be replaced/upgraded and I'm kinda leaning towards that as well since I can get the laptop repaired (I'm sure) a lot cheaper than it would be to buy a gaming laptop.

Damn... to many desicions

There is an article in today's Dallas Morning News about that.

Dell's Customer Service is well, second to none. Get the warranty and they take care of you. I don't really care for H.P. (Huge. Piece).
