WAY overpriced.

They use good components and you can upgrade it all unlike Dell, but WAY overpriced.

I don't have any first-hand experience with Alienware's, but I've heard from PC reviews and friends that they are solid systems.

Having said that, last time I was in the market for one, I thought they wanted too much for their systems. I ended up building one myself.

With a little surfing to gather the knowledge on PC construction, and some diligent shopping, you can build your own equivalent, or BETTER gaming rig for half the price of Alienware.

2 of my past roommates owned Alienware PC's and they didn't hold a candle to what I could build, and both were prone to overheating during serious gaming.

Agreed. I looked into Alienware and Overdrive PC recently. But I decided to build my own using newegg. Couldn't be happier, I was able to build a kick ass system for much less and it was surprisingly easy to do.

Well, when you spec out a $4000 Alienware, you'll realize that you can build it yourself for about $2300 (less the funky alien face case... which actually isn't all that thermally efficient.)
