So I saw an Alienware M17x at MicroCenter and thought it was the most beautiful piece of machinery I ever saw . Lifted it up and that thing was around 12 pounds. Do you think it's crazy to get a 17" 12 pound laptop for college? I don't call myself a hardcore gamer, but I do like to play games like Skyrim and BF3 once in a while (on max settings would be pretty nice since I play these games with the lowest settings on my crappy desktop and still get pretty choppy gameplay). If it is crazy to get such a monster laptop (probably wouldn't even fit on the tiny desks in lecture rooms, lol), what are some gaming laptops of similar capability besides other Alienware laptops?
