Hi, I will be going to university soon and I need a laptop.
I'll be needing it to run video editing software (Adobe Premiere Pro) and some gaming ( Starcraft 2, Shogun 2 and some FPS games)

Planning on getting the AW13 but I'm a little worried about the i5 4210U processor on the AW13. Is it enough to run softwares and games as mention above?
Currently, Dell isn't selling the i7 version in my country :(

Or should I go with XPS 13, which Dell advertised it as a video editing laptop (not sure is it true) But I'm not comfortable with the 4gbs of RAM and Intel graphics.

I prefer to get a Dell because of their better warranty tech support.

Thank you.

Personally I think Alienware has taken a huge quality hit since even before Dell acquired them. Intel graphics is alright IMO as long as you're not gaming, and you can usually add more RAM.
