Good for you with the laptop. The reliability is the problem with those but anyway. Dell's usually can have it's OS installed through a special windows instal disk. Basically it's a DELL REPAIR only disk(I got to use one because of a stint at a computer shop last year) that installs Windows....BUT DOESN'T ask you for the windows key. It pulls it from the hardware.... yeah. Not sure if Alienware follows that. And remember that different colors and types of COA are availble. Even if you download Windows whatever that is the same as the version installed, when typing in the key into windows...it MAY not work. I don't have enough personal experience with that to know how many times or what you need to do to make it work.
Why INTEL SSD? I recommend Plextor, Samsung, or Crucial. OCZ is the next contendor but Plextor and Crucial are gaining steam. Crucial is at the top of the SSD marker for people that can't pay heavy premiums for Intel and Plextor is gaining heavily by being faster than the Curical M4's in the write deparement and being more reliable and at the same price. I almost bought an Crucial M4 until a good enthusiast showed me new benchmakrs for the drives that confirmed that the two Crucial M4 and Plextor M4 were close but Plextor had a slight upper hand.
A week ago Samsng has a 128GB SSD for $120. IT was $20 more than what I payed for mine....BUT IT CAME WITH the new Ghost Recon code to pre download!!!! Just need benchmakrs of that though.
My nickname is Panda-sama. Tilpo's is Rikkun. Because his real life nick name is Rik and add a kun. Hybrid's is Haiburido Chan or Hai-by chan(pronounced Hi-Be chan). Kuroda Tsubasa's is Kuroda tan and b1o's is Borisu kun.
Please remember you are using a display model. They crash due to other consumers doing stupid stuff on it and loading crap ton of programs and closing them incorrrectly (Command+q)
I wanted a new bookshelf speaker that GuttenBerg recommended for $100 that are on sale for $50 right now and wanted to go to a Best Buy or Fry's but my parents had to go do...errands.
I slept for 10 hours and lol....52 posts
I really liked the take the world and burn it nature of Code Geass and Death Note. I love Supremem rise to power anime's and their rise was absolutely GLORIOUS to watch. Small spoiler:Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

It was stupdenous to watch!
