Two options...:)

by geozlatarev / November 22, 2009 6:44 AM PST

Hi, everybody!
I am about to upgrade my computers and Really don't know which is better, so need opinions:

Option 1: I buy a expensive and powerful Macbook Pro.

Option 2: I make my home pc a monster and buy a Dell 1555 with FullHD display, 9 cell bat, ati 4570/512mb and 500/5400 gb hard.

What I do is gaming and heavy photoshop with plugins inside because I'm very much into photography lately.
I just don't have the money to get both great so....just don't know what to do:)

Thanks for your time!:))))

If you're into gaming...

I think the choice is pretty clear. You're going to get the best gaming experience on a PC.

I'm biased, yeah, but the numbers don't lie.

Ask around with your gaming friends and you'll hear the same thing.

Thanks, Ron!

I knew about the pc so I was thinking in case it was Mac to put a windows on it for gaming.:)

My question was more would it be worth it to give all my money in a powerful laptop Mac, or it's better to have a powerful desktop and decent laptop:)))
But I'm starting to thing that this is the better option because no laptop could compare to a desktop....I thing:)

depends on your use

If you absolutely have to use a laptop all the time (no space for a desktop, or you move around too much) then obviously it is worth the money to buy a really good one.

But, if you can use a desktop and you don't mind having to use a slower laptop, then that's the obvious answer.

the laptop is second

Well, I really don't thing of using my laptop all the time, considering I plan to get my self one of Dell's monitors 2209 with IPS matrix, so..:)))
I guess wouldn't mind if the laptop is somehow slower:))))
