and they gave me a budget of 1500 bucks, but the less i spend the better, right now im between a alienware either of the M17 series(im torn between the normal and the fx) a Asus G50vt -x5(which im not very sure) and a Acer AS8730-6951, i want them for gaming, i kinda like that the acer has a performance boost option but the alienwares look so cool.

halp


no im not getting a guitar because my parents say that i don't play well enough to deserve another one.

Do NOT go with Alienware. They are complete shit. Asus and MacBooks are the only decent laptops out there.

I once used the term "hardcore strokes" to define how one of my cats use to like being stroked. Looking back i can fully understand my mother's facial expression.

I digress.. i dont know anyone that uses a laptop for gaming, and theres probably a good reason for that. If i were you i'd just get a mac notebook and save up for a gaming pc later.

Alienware = no
overpriced so much,
I'm supposing building one yourself isn't an option, so just shop around for a decent one. I reccomend getting a desktop, for the same price you'll get much better specs, and get it online.
Hope i helped

HP is generic. A laptop's most important feature is its structural design and on that basis, the MacBook is the only decent laptop there is.

No, my opinion is correct. I've worked with many laptops to have reached this conclusion. It's not like MacBooks are some sort of special thing that no one else imitate. Apple has revealed in depth how their laptops are constructed, and the only dumbfounding problem is that no one else has even attempted to copy its methods. Sony's Vaio tries to be as thin as a MacBook (even though this is just an appearance factor), but fails because Sony still relies on the traditional, much more flawed method of design.

You did realize he said this was for gaming right?

MacBook Pro has a 9600GT as well as a 9400 onboard for resource and energy efficiency. It's perfectly capable of running games, especially after you install Windows on it.

1. nobody has copied it because they can produce more powerful laptops for alot cheaper, hence not needing to

2. Insanely fanboyish posts are irrelevant to any person looking for real information

Alienware and Acer are both **** brands.
Alienware is over priced and Acer is just bad quality.

Indeed, id be surprised if it would last longer than that without overheating.

You are just like all the other short sighted people who think they know computers but actually don't. A laptop's quality should be judged much more than just its specifications. MacBooks may not have the fastest CPU or the best GPU for the price, but its physical design, which addresses many traditional problems, make it worth the $2000. In contrast, an Alienware or Vaio that costs $2000 has nothing but a "cool looking" casing. The only Windows-based laptop that is worth the money is Asus because they charge for good specs at a reasonable price and they don't charge you extra for the physical design, which is still traditional.


2. Insanely fanboyish are irrelevant to any person looking for real information

A fanboy is one who blindly subscribe to one thing while being ignorant to everything else. I've had a lot of hands on experience and I've used a lot of computers. I don't blindly subscribe to Apple. I use a custom built desktop because it is much more beneficial and efficient than any Mac desktops. It just so happens that I find MacBooks have the best qualities in a laptop.

your wrong, the Macbook series (white, Al, air and pro) pretty much own any other laptop as far as hardware is concerned. I'm not talking specs. Any company can build a powerful laptop, I'm talking design, and not just aesthetics. They do look nice, but that isn't the important bit. They are far more robust and innovatively designed than anything else on the market today.

You can dislike the Mac operating system as much as you like, but as far as laptops are concerned, Apple make the best.
You're using UG classic, congratulations.

so a few cosmetic changes, and the way they place their motherboard, along with a slower CPU and sh|tty GPU, and less memory make it worht an extra 1000$,

i dunno about you but i tend not to like throwing money away as if it grows on trees.
Also this guy wants to game, something macs are uncapable of on a very large amount of popular games
