If you're not going to game on this notebook, don't waste your money on Alienware.
Good gaming platform when they work and the service is well, not that good. Yes,
Dell bought them out but, Dell's reputation as far the service goes, isn't any better.
The same could probably be said for other builders but, more often than not, we
see Dell buyers on here complaining of their bad service. The ones I haven't come
across too often are :
IF you will be doing only normal stuff on your notebook, I would suggest looking at
one of those I mentioned above.
To answer your question, Alienware came from a merging of two notebook builders.
Alienware, before this name sake, bought out Clevo which was a Top End notebook
builder then, dropped them to form Alienware from ECS and Uniwill.

Alienware is an expensive series for the hardware you're getting. The base cost of the M15x is $1349 and that includes a 15.6" screen, 4GB Dual Channel DDR3 RAM, 250GB SATA2 7.2k RPM hard disk drive, and no Office 2010 software. It doesn't really impress me. It would be fine for games with that 1GB DDR3 ATI Radeon Mobility HD 5730 graphics card, so it would be fine for streaming Internet movies too. It also comes with a Wireless 1520 802.11n Half Mini-Card but I don't see mention anywhere about a wired-NIC (a good fall back option).
If you're not going to be playing the latest games on your laptop, you should look into Dell's Studio or Inspiron series' instead. The Studio series is aimed at media enthusiasts and the base cost of the Studio 1749 is $650 cheaper than that of the Alienware M15x.
