Hey guys... looking into a new laptop solution, and I have narrowed down to to systems:
Alienware m9750 - http://www.alienware.com/product_det...de=SKU-DEFAULT
Dell M1730 - http://www.dell.com/content/products...dlestab&~ck=mn
The final decision comes down to video cards
m9750: NVIDIAŽSLIDual GeForce GoŽ 7950 GTX with 1 GB GDDR3 Memory (total)
m1730: NVIDIAŽSLIDual GeForceŽ 8700M GT with 512MB GDDR3 Memory (total)
Dell said they have a system that will allow me to upgrade the video cards when they come out with the 1gb versions.
Supposedly the 7950 GTX does not support DX 10
Supposedly the 7950 GTX outperforms 8700 GT
Supposedly the processor that Dell uses (the new AGEIA PhysX physics processing unit) helps increase gaming performance
I could really use some help here, as right now I am teetering on both sides... Both this new dell (dubbed the beast) has been brought forth by dell to compete in the gaming laptop market. Both the dell and the alienware have features that I like and dislike.
