    DELL XPS L521X - marriage or a car crash?

    What about this one then? Anyone have it? I've been reading some stuff online about wifi issues and throttling/overheating during gaming, that may have been solved / be about to be solved by BIOS updates. Anyone know if the issues have been sorted yet? Basically I need a laptop good for gaming and the office.

    Here's a sample review:

    That is extremely overpriced and underpowered even for general gaming. Office wise its insanely overpriced.

    Not sure what you mean by "general gaming" but I run WoW & Diablo 3 on ultra on its predecessor no problem.

    It may be over-priced. But find me, in your view, a decent-specced gaming laptop that doesn't look like a thinkpad on steroids. It's not so easy.

    Wow on ultra with atleast 45 FPS at what resolution?

    AA?
    Multisampling?
    Shadows?

    If all of them are maxed, then you may call me the queen of England.
