$1500 and still no 1080p screen? No thank you.

This article has just skimmed the specs. For the 17" there are 5 points to start from and only 1 isn't 1080.

The basic resolutions are not gaming laptop quality. Dell has degraded the Alienware brand. Spend more money on the display and less on the "design" of the stealth bomber inspired body.

So many idiots on maximum pc, laptops for $1k that come with 1080p screens do it because THEY DON'T HAVE DEDICATED GRAPHICS CARDS LIKE THESE. I swear the readerbase of this website is retarded.

why on earth 1200$ premium model laptop come with such crappy low resolution display!!
each passing day new mobile device come with FHD quality display and laptop makers insist on using low quality & resolution display!!

Agreed. If it's got discrete graphcis and calls itself a gaming laptop it should be able to push a 1080p screen at decent frame rates. Otheriwse it's just not got the chops to be a gaming anything.

Alienware is made by Dell. I have nothing good to say about Dell. I've buy a Mac a 3 times the price and put Windows on it before I ever get a Dell again.

For 1200 bucks a Full HD screen should be standard. Cheapy APU laptops come with 1368*768 screens. Dell should be ashamed.

For 2100 dollars I should be getting a greater-than-1080 screen, especially when the size of the screen in question is 18".

Asus's design is supposed to be modeled after stealth bombers as well, right?

Yeah. Their "Republic of Gamers" stuff. I personally own one of them.

I've got a G50Vt. It was before they started using the "Stealth Bomber" look. My friend has a G73. I was hoping they'd refresh the look, but it doesn't seem that Asus has any plans to do that soon.

Just thought I would chime in if you are really set on a gaming laptop.
I own the m17x vs m18x. I spent way too much I know on them save me the chiding. Reason I did buy them is I live in S America so needed something portable with support. If you must guy a gaming laptop and want the best these things are. I have the m18x in sli 2 580m cards and my computer runs a 30 inch monitor and is on 10 or more hours a day not one problem in more then a year. Runs relatively quiet and cool and feels super premium with the aluminum and magnesium. I figure if I use this things 10 hours a day go for the biggest and the best. The rest of the gaming laptops are plastic like a timex and rolex. This thing is heavy but in a good way like the feeling of gold or silver in your hand vs painted plastic gold or silver. I will next be getting a desktop or perhaps sticking with a small portable laptop with the external silverstone upcoming graphics case but I do want to say. If you have to have a gaming laptop, a desktop will not work grab the m17x with the most powerful graphics card ( you can carry this one in more types of backpacks and wheeled luggage then the m18x which is limited. I workout allot so carrying the over 25lb bag on my shoulder was possible with the m18x recently to Argentina but believe me all that metal is Heavy!
