This is just me, there will always be something bigger and better down the road especially with comp. Other than a better gpu and more ram the new one comes with, I think you're good imo. You can get more ram anytime, even though 8 is good for most people.

Like Sway said, there is always going to be the "next version" that's just a little bit better than what you have. The best thing you can do is just use what you've got (which is pretty good) and just get something new in a few years.

Damn that sucks, well if there is any consolation Alienware has one of the best resale value out of any laptop. If your current laptop works for you, then that's all that matters. Otherwise you'll be chasing technology all the time.

If you're going to quote 'piss your money away' you should invest in a desktop. Because everything for desktop is easier to upgrade and more powerful, and likely cheaper. I have a similar rig to yours, give or take some and I'm very pleased with it. My next investment will be in a desktop I think. Custom built, but hopefully in an Alienware case.

Similar story, I bought my iPhone 3G about 3 years ago. At this point, it's hurting bad, when I got it, I had to pay 100$ towards it, less than 1 week later, the iPhone 3G became a Free phone, and the 3GS became 100$. So now I have grandpa software and a grandpa phone. It's really bad when some of the apps you want, you can't have because your phone is too old....

Just because there is a new generation of tech available it does not automatically make the previous tech obsolete. Your rig will be good for several years.
