    Jbrewton45, I was in the same situation. I decided on the m18x because I want future proofing.The aluminum case, dual 6970's and wirelessHD sold me, I also included the 3 year advanced just in case. When your spending multiple thousands of dollars...$300 is not that much to CYA. just my 2 cents.

    If I was you I would get on the phone and talk to an Alienware Rep. My understanding is once you get laptop you have 21 days to return it, if you haggle correctly you will be able to return your order and get the m18x without paying the restocking fee.

    Is not like you just want your money back and AW is loosing the sale, you placing a second order.

    My rep doubt it that he would be able to cancel my order in time, but if that was the case I would still be able to re place order no restocking fee, just haggle.

    Have them order then use your Dell card for the payment on the site. Problem solved if you trust your cousin with your card info. :D

    i was just on the site yesterday and it was showing a 700 to 800 dollar discount. Logged in today and the base discount is $450. When you start building your custom system the discount starts decreasing down to like 200 somthing or 100 something dollars. How the hell do you get less of a discount when spending more money? Its a reverse discount lol...you start with 30% or whatever off...then the more you spend you get only 10%...shady. This is either a bug with the website not doing the proper math or were getting ripped off...should of bought it yesterday when the total discount was in the 700's of dollars.
