Need some help on deciding on a new laptop I've got a bout a $2000 budget give or take a few hundred. I'm looking into an Alienware M15x or a Maingear EX-L 15. The specs for the 2 are pretty close and the price is about the same near the $1900 dollar mark. Just not sure which one to swing for or if there is a better alternative for my money. Specs for the 2 are as follows:

Alienware: $2019
Core i7-720qm
1GB NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 260M
4GB Dual Channel DDR3 at 1333MHz
15.6-inch WideFHD 1920x1080 (1080p) WLED
Slot-Load Dual Layer DVD Burner (DVD+-RW, CD-RW)
Primary - 9-cell (85Watt) Lithium-Ion Battery
Intel WiFi Link 5300 802.11AGN Half Mini Card
Other options included: internal bluetooth, mini-card 2.1, 2MP camera, 5.1 surround sound, windows 7 home

Maingear: $1878
15.6" HD+ 16:9 LED Display (1920x1080) with Super Clear Screen
Intel® Core™ i7-720QM
ATI® Mobility Radeon™ HD 5870 1GB GDDR5
4GB Kingston DDR3-1333 SO-DIMM (Dual Channel)
250GB Western Digital 7200 RPM SATA 2.5"
8X DVD Dual Layer Burner
Integrated 802.11b/g/n Wireless - up to 300Mbps!
Other options included: internal bluetooth, mini-card, 2MP camera, 6cell battery, windows 7 home

As you can see pretty similar specs just a few differences, but very undecided between the 2 or if there is a better option...would love all the advice!!
