An Alienware laptop is one of things that gamers strive for, but with a price range starting at around $799 and then they rise to a massive $1,500.
This means that the gamer is going to have to considered exactly what they are looking for and at the same time keep an eye on the budget, unless of course they are one those super gamer type with unlimited resources.

SU7300 Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB of RAM, a switchable 1GB Nvidia GeForce GT 335M graphics card which can be turned on and off at whim, an 11.6-inch TFT display running at 1366 x 768 resolution, and a 250GB hard drive.
Priced at $799
