I'm trying to decide what laptop I want to buy. Mac Powerbook Pro is supposed to be just as fast as the Alienware laptop but it doesn't have a 17" screen that I would want to have. I have priced them both out and the Alienware laptop is in the same price range as the Powerbook Pro with all the things I need on it. I've read the frame rate is better on the Alienware .. Is this true? I think the 17" screen is holding me back from buying a Powerbook Pro .. Does anyone have any suggestions or knowledge of how fast the two are in comparison? I'm a gamer and also use video editing software so I need a fast machine.
