Well this depends in what way are you going to use your laptop. Is it for gaming, watching movies or just simple browsing? I normally check the technical specifications on the manufacturer's website. Check about the System Memory and Hard Disk. You can check if it is now using a Solid State Drive. Screen size is also important to me. Try to check the pre installed Operating System and software as well.

What would you need the laptop for? If its just for web browsing and doing office documents and presentations, a netbook would do. Its cheap, light and has a long battery life. Most netbooks have the same specs, though if I were you I'd get one with 500Gb storage, at least 2Gb RAM and a dual core processor. But that is for netbooks. Then you also have your ultrabooks, which come at a heftier price. Again, ask yourself what will you do with the laptop? If its for media consumption, think of the battery life. One lasting for around 5 hours is good, the more, the better. Think of the display resolution...higher displays are good, but don't forget that you can just connect your netbook to a highdef monitor :) At least 4Gbs of RAM if you want to play games, and a good CPU..I5 or I7. Alienware is a high-specced gaming laptop. It is one marvelous piece of technology, looks very sleek and has good internals..but for the price, I don't know if its worth spending that much for a laptop. If you've got no problem spending for one, then do so. But if you're just looking for a laptop to do basic stuff....its undoubtably OVERKILL lol.
