CPU cooler and XYZ Computing wraps things up with its review of the Alienware
Sentia M3400 Notebook.
One problem area for the build-your-own-PC crowd has always been notebook
computers. When your hobby or job involves building your own computers it is
very easy to disparage system builders for their high prices, lackluster machines,
and limited options, but when a notebook computer is needed these people find
themselves in an awkward position. Because there is no good way to building
a notebook computer the way you would a normal PC, we find ourselves buying
systems from the very companies which we have tried so hard to avoid. One partial
solution to this problem is to get a notebook computer from a company which
is a bit cooler than the normal manufacturer, one which understands the needs
of the enthusiast. Whether you are a fan of Alienware or not, it can't be denied
they have designed their computers to be more appealing to the gamer and hobbyist
than the average Dell or HP.
