But for bleeding edge the Alienware should be ahead. Apple is a bit more staid but solid machine.
For me the decision was made easier as many of the Apple laptops don't have a page up/down, home or end keys which I use a lot while working on code for our apps.
I'm thinking of buying a new laptop and I would like some advice. My budget isn't a problem.
What I need is a desktop replacement with good hardware to support the latest games with any problems and 2d-3d software.
After looking at reviews and reading pros and cons, I ended up with 2 choices: Macbook Pro 17" or Alienware.M17xR3
Any advices ?
