My friend wants to buy a MBP for school and also to act as a gaming machine now that he can install bootcamp or use crossover. However, I have strongly advised him against this because It would be cheaper to just buy a macbook (he only needs the extra power for games) and buy a cheap PC tower to play games seperately. He already has an external LCD and peripherals so he can slap together a gaming rig for 600 dollars. So it would be a cheaper to buy the two systems I think. I dunno we could use some opinions.
