Hello.

I will buy an Alienware, and I am hesitating between these two Alienware:

http://www.fnac.com/mp23877992/Dell...-RAM-1000-Go-AMD-R9-M290x-4GB-Windows-8-1/w-4

http://www.fnac.com/mp23877991/Dell...de-RAM-500-Go-nVidia-880M-8GB-Windows-8-1/w-4

They both have a screen of 17 inches, they are both black, they are both new (they have never been used by anyone else), they both have "Core i7", they both have a processor speed of 1 GHz, they both have 16 GB of RAM, they both have a resolution of 1920 x 1080, and they both have a mass of 4.5 kg.

They seem to have only 3 differences:

- The price: The first one is 2015€ while the second one is 2421€

- The graphic card: the first one has a "AMD R9 M290x 4GB" while the second one has a "nVidia 880M 8GB"

- The hard disk size/capacity: the first one has 1000 GB, while the second one has 500 GB

I don't know much about computers, so I prefer asking people who are more knowledgeable than I am. Which one of the two should I take?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

Hi, bro. Why don't you choose a Alienware 17 r2 from dell's official website:

http://www.dell.com/fr/p/alienware-17-r2/pd.aspx

Go for the second one and upgrade the RAM to 16G and choose a 128G SSD would cost you extra 200€ which sum up at approximately 2100 €.

The Alienware 17 R2 is thinner and lighter (3.7 kg) compare to the older one and equipped with most powerful mobile graphic card GTX 980m which is 30% faster than GTX 880m. What you will lost is a CD ROM but did you play any DVDs on a laptop last three years? So go for the Alienware 17 R2 plz.

Hi. Sorry but I have to buy my computer on the website that I provided in my first post (Fnac.com) because I have a gift certificate of 2000€ which can only be used on that website.
And the only two Alienwares 17 on this website are the two Alienwares which I provided the link in my first post.
