Asus Alienware m15 15-inch Gaming Laptop (AWm15-7149WHT-PCA)

If you're looking for a laptop capable of handling the most demanding games out there right now, this one could well be worth looking into. If you like having the option to tinker with your gaming PC, however, your options would be quite limited with this model.

Other Considerations

Here are a few things about this Laptop which could come as a surprise. For each point, you will find how to fix it (if it's an issue) and how much to budget for it. Not every point below will be a concern, but hopefully, we can keep your surprises to a minimum.

Slow storage. Once started, this Laptop should perform ok, however, expect it to take some time to start up, launch programs and open large documents. If this gets really annoying, it is possible to replace the hard drive with a faster alternative if you're comfortable with opening up your laptop.$60+

No Optical Drive. If you still use CDs, DVDs, or Blu-Ray disks on a regular basis, you will need an external drive to read them with this Laptop.$30+

No Number Pad. If you primarily work with numbers, the lack of a number pad on this laptop could be inconvenient. You have the option of using an external number pad to remedy that, especially if you only need it on occasion.$20+

Assuming you are starting over fresh, you can expect to spend $20 on accessories, for a total cost of $1620.
