    One thing the Alienware site won't tell you is how many buyers have had major problems with their systems.

    Means that many people have had problems with Alienware systems, especially with the drivers for the Quad SLI graphics. It's been discussed on the forum already I think.

    Not available in India. But you can build a similar config minus the Qual SLI for a fraction of what Alienware charges.

    You can get something much cheaper yet almost as good and sometimes even better than what Alienware plans to give you, such thing always don't have to be available in India.

    What do you not get?

    Get Amd FX62, not a big deal
    Get Opteron dual Core 165 and oc to 3ghz and it is the fastest cpu next only to conroe, does Alienware give you that?

    You can yourself get Quad sli, no big deal

    You can build something better for half the money... Alienware is all hype :p. Also about cabinets, you can get a coolermaster stacker 830 for 12K which is way better than any case alienware will give you :p.

    Its only cos of the "photochopped" images. It looks pretty ordinary if you see it in person. In fact my CM Wavemaster looks ten times better than alienware cases (other than the custom painted star wars/superman ones). But then again u pay 500$ for a paintjob :p.
