If you're willing to spend $1850+ on a laptop, get this instead
. Bigger screen, better GPU, slightly slower processor, but a much better pricetag. In case you hadn't realized yet, Alienware is severely overpriced for what you actually get. That's uniform across desktops and laptops.
I have the ASUS laptop and I love it. It performs admirably for a laptop at 1080p in FFXIV (30 fps under load, better in less crowded areas). Particularly at higher resolutions, the GPU is going to take over as the most important component, so that's why I'd recommend the mobility 5870 (alienware doesn't offer it on the m15x). It's significantly more powerful than the mobility 5850. The gap between the 720qm and the 740qm isn't remotely as large, and that's even less pronounced at higher resolutions.
