    I don't think you can configure the msi gt73 with 1500$ and alienware is a brand , may be they refer it to the current 15r3/17r4 . I think for 1500$ the clevo p650hs maybe a good choice if you can go with 8gb ram and buy an ssd yourself . I think @woodzstack have some for you

    I'd suggest looking at the Dell Inspiron 7577, Lenovo Legion Y720 or Asus GL503VM

    Alienware machines are generally very well built but you may have to re-apply the thermal paste in some cases since the default application and cooler mountain has a small chance of being poor. Otherwise, they do cost a bit more and usually come with stellar NBD support.

    Check reviews on NoteBookCheck for detailed analysis on the models you've selected. That's the best way to go about it once you've narrowed down your search.
