Been a while since I've bought a new Alienware but today I ordered an Alienware 13. Even better is that I my work is paying for it! Only thing I upgraded from stock is the HD screen. I'll throw an SSD in there later.
You're right there is something about getting this puppy early that was so sweet. No more lugging the monster on trips. Side by side I wonder how I ever carried the 18 on fifteen trips this year. Merry Christmas to me a little early.
