The EASIEST solution to this would be to plug one end of a HDMI cable into your laptop, and the other end into one of our monitors. It will output your computer to your monitor instead of your broken laptop screen.
It sounds like you shattered your LCD, not the glass in front of it (like you said). Coincidentally the same thing happened with my laptop about 2 weeks ago. You could just send it in, and they could fix the screen for you (at a price, unless you still have a warranty).Since you will probably be mainly video editing on your PC, why not get a workstation? I would recommend a Xeon Graphics card instead of an i7 because they have more threads (cores) and a K2000 graphics card with 16 gb of RAM. You will get more bang for your buck with a desktop than a laptop (gaming laptops are usually expensive because they have to compact so much into a small space with adequate cooling). If you still really want an alienware, don't worry, transferring your files shouldn't be too difficult because you can take the hard drive out of your old one and put it into your new one. Good luck!
Wow, what a long intro. You said you didn't like those intros with just random shapes but instead just made your own. One that I am making right now look a lot more advanced :). Nice music selection though.
