Although the Alienware rig is especially nice, you can get a fully loaded Dell Inspiron 8600 (Centrino) for a lot less...

I picked one up and couldn't be happier...

Either way, you're sure to have a killer lappy...congrats... :D

Go Centrino if you want portability, which I find is the whole point in having a laptop.

Check out the prices here

http://www.powernotebooks.com/index.php3

I think they'll be quite a bit better (especially since you already have a copy of XP) although the laptops aren't quite as "stylish" as the Alienware.

EDIT: How's this:

http://www.powernotebooks.com/specials.php3?model_id=269

Pentium4 3.06GHz
17" widescreen display w/ ATI Radeon Mobility 9000
40GB drive
1/2 GB RAM
no OS

$1599

Or how about this:

http://www.powernotebooks.com/specials.php3?model_id=276

Pentium4 3.2GHz
16" 4:3 screen w/ ATI Radeon 9600 Pro
40GB drive
1GB RAM
no OS

$2200

BTW, if you look closely, this is one of Alienware's products but without the fancy paint job.

And your dad was going to pay $3K?

Eat it Alienware :angel2:

EDIT2: 16" models are 9600 Pro's

That's the high end model. The cheapest one has a 2.6GHz chip, half a gig of RAM, and have a base of cost $1810.

I'd just get a Centrino and not play games on it because I want a two pound notebook that lasts for five hours and has integrated Wi-Fi. THAT, to me, is nice.

I have a Dell Latitude D800 Centrino. Probably the coolest peice of tech I have ever bought. Weighs absolutely nothing and I can watch 2 DVDs on it and still have enough battery for an hour of work.

Sweet!!! I am looking for a desktop replacement laptop too.

My first choice was the Voodoo M:460 but then I said stuff it. Overall they are good notebooks but cons are:
-only 1 mem dimm. So max is 1 gig of memory.
-very noisy
-gets very hot
-crap wireless
-about 2 hours on battery
-you have to wait 60 days and pay an upfront retainer of $3000. Plus the M:460 is undergoing a platform upgrade.

My second choice was a new 15" powerbook. The price on them is okay if you get a student discount but the cons are:
-very hot
-can get noisy
-crap harddrive, CPU and memory.
-you have to pay a minimum of $3000 for the hardware and another $400 for all the software I need, such as office, VPC, matlab etc.
-dead pixels and white spots on the screen
Apart from that I like the 9600VPU it has and you have to admit it damn sexy and light. Plus there are more games coming out for os x right now.

My other alternative is the HP nc8000. This weighs around 7 pounds with the battery, about 1.6" thick and 15" screen. But a couple of reasons it caught my eye are,
-9600 pro 128mb
-1.7ghz centrino
-a/b/g wireless
-multibay (I can add an extra battery on the long trips or a dvd burner)
-for $300 I can upgrade it to a 7200rpm hard drive.:D
-1gig of 333mhz ram.
Overall it does not look nice, but this laptop is a screamer. The con is that it is made by HP/Compaq. Synonymous with crap support and crap etc.

Other candidat is the Toshiba M:30. Overall I love its design etc. But it comes with a crappy 32 mem GFX5200. Plus I have to upgrade the memory and harddrive.
