    If someone doesnt personally like porsches that is fine (not really :p). But anyone who knows anything about cars has respect for porsche.

    The claim that porsches are just VW beetles indicates incomplete knowledge of automobiles in general.

    For example, I dont like Aston Martins. But I respect them for being "cool" cars.

    I also think that alienware is just an alienware, I don't see any difference between a m15x and a Inspiron 15, they both will do office 2000 just fine. Whatever drops 3 grands on one must be a no brainer.

    except the fact that their engine is in the wrong place. And they are some of the fastest cars in the world. And their tunability. And the pure pleasure that they give to the driver. They are the quintessential sports car.

    Actually, the statement that Porsches are "just VW beetles" is a compliment, not an insult - at least so long as one is referring to the real, original beetle and not the silly "bug" VW put out a few years ago. Both are beautiful examples of engineering.
