On a whim I ordered a the new Alienware 14. Chose the base model fir $1499, upgraded the graphics card to the 765M.

I think it will be a gift to my brother in law for graduating high school.

I will use this to see if I want this or the razerblade for myself.

Nice one buddy! Mine isn't too far away either. Got exactly the same as you. Last week they had a special with a 64gb cache SSD though. The manufacturing stage is complete so now I just have to wait for shipping. Did you get some discount from Dell? They give 5% off if you can find someone's student number to use. Doesn't matter whose.

We changed our minds anyway. Going to relax in the apartment today instead. It'll all be there next time

Yeah, I got boned by not qualifying for a student discount. Since I live in Canada and therefore in the Canadian market, and my University is American........ no bueno.....

Yeah, I received it Friday afternoon. It took me a few hours to get accustomed to how damn big it is. I don't regret spending all that money. The only worries I have is if it will develop any problems. Being a member of this website reminds us of the few that do! I have gotten a few errors with my AlienFX to where I had to restart my 18 for the new lighting theme to be enabled. My spouse likes the laptop as well. In a few years I may get her the 14.
