Alienware isn't silly. It'll fit perfectly when computer's become indestructible and have batteries that never need to be charged.

Ah... what? How does that have any bearing on picking a laptop in the here and now?

Alienware -> alien products.
Now you've seen the genre.

I am uncertain if you are just being obtuse as possible, or trolling.

Either way - can your laptop handle playing those games? If so then go for it. Does it have non mobile processors with high clock speeds? If so then go for it. Do you get tight in the pants for the brand name? If so then go for it.

If you have your heart set on an Alienware, buy an Alienware. It's your money. You've gotten constructive feedback and choose to shoot everyone's comments down with snide remarks. I do not see any reason to leave this thread open.

As a word of advice- you will get better help if you calm down a little and go with the flow, rather than getting heated and annoyed at every response. If you're asking people for help or their opinions, you can't be mad when you get them. Otherwise, what's the point of asking?

*sigh* Give a man a fish/teach a man to fish..

I am trying to get you to think about the nature of a laptop's specs and your needs. A simple comparison - if the machine is on pace for playing modern games then it's not a bad machine to develop games on.. If you overly just want the brand then max out the specs and go for it.. You too can make competent choices on hardware by evaluating what you know and what you need! I swear!

edit: I guess this is in after the lock.
