Gah to buy this or the Acer 3820TG. Boy does that thing pack a lot of power. But in the end it is an Acer :P

  • Acer 3820
  • Choice of Intel Core i3/i5/i7
  • Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit or Windows Vista Home Basic
  • Intel HD Graphics or Switchable between Intel HD Graphics and ATI 5470 or 5650
  • 13.3"
  • Difference size HDD's
  • Up to 8GB DDR3-1066 Ram
  • Up to 8 hours of battery life
  • 3820T/TG:3.9lbs
  • < 1" thick
Lighter, thinner, more powerful and similar battery life to the alienware. But again, Acer isn't known for good cooling or build quality.

You will not regret it, This has been the most fun i have ever had with such a small laptop. Most people cannot even believe me that it can play games the way it does. also it gets about 7 hours with the gfx card turned off (even with the alien lighting stuff on!) it is the perfect portable computer. IN fact i typed this message on it right now :P

Hey Vagnaar, gonna sell your N10J then???

Perhaps one of you lucky %*#%%'s could give me a real quick benchmark between overclocked and standard clock speeds? Though you owe me nothing, I won't lose sleep about it, but it is a chance to show off lol.
The 335m isn't MXM is it?
