The Alienware Aurora M7700 is available directly from Alienware, on their website. Configuring your custom machine is easy and simple. My unit's grand total came out to be $4,317 as equipped. That's right, read it again. $4,317. That's a heavy chunk of change, but why so much? Let's take a look at what is included with this M7700. The notebook starts at $2,179 for a base configuration. The processor alone in this system, the AMD Athlon 64 FX-60, was a $1,170 upgrade from the base single-core AMD64 3200+, and the video card, the 256MB Go7800GTX, was another $452 upgrade from the "base" 256MB Go6800. Without those two upgrades, the total system cost is around $2,700..
