Apple or Alienware? Which is less overpriced?

I know both are overpriced, but which is more worth the money? I'm not planning on playing any games on either but alienwares (afaik) have superb build quality and look quite sublime.

That's like asking if a lion or tiger is less likely to kill.

However, I'm going to say Alienware because:

1) it's not a Mac
2) Macs are gay
3) aliens are cool

They both make computers with hardware that would altogether cost a fraction of their RRP but they get morons to buy them because they are either shiny brushed aluminium or covered in neon green, blue and red lights with a martian logo on it.

You could build a computer with superior performance, using name brand parts, for much less than an alienware costs, and I'd bet the alienware Chinese knockoff parts on the inside.

Of course, the same could be said about a mac but you don't get that snazzy Snow Mountain Leopard Lion 10.675456 OS or whatever they're on now.

Both are bad imo.

I want a laptop so you can't really build one.

One thing I love about Macs is their touchpads. So much better than the one on my current HP.

Also any other brands worth checking out? Not getting Sony or HP.

I've had nothing but horrific experiences with Dell, who own Alienware, so I'll go ahead and say don't touch the Alienware.

I don't understand why it's a choice between alienware or the macbook. There are so many other overpriced laptops you could be choosing from

I don't see how it would be damaging. I got called C-dog for a number of years despite not being a dog. I turned out alright.

Both are overpriced, but if you are going to compare just these two, the sort of hardware Apple gives at so-and-so dollars, Alienware gives the same at about 1/2-3/4's the price.
