    I'm going to buy a new laptop and I want to know which one you guys think I should buy, out of macbook, dell mini 9 with 32gb or 64gb SDD, (and I install mac os x the mini 9), alienware alien-51 m15 (I might install mac os x on it). I love mac os x but I would want to be able to play games on it, I also like small laptops. So I don't know which one to buy.

    Thanks

    Hold on you're comparing a MacBook, a Dell mini and an Alienware gaming machine?

    You won't be playing many games on a Dell mini, nor will the Alienware be small, so I guess go for the MacBook.

    You're comparing things that are completely different. The Dell Mini is a netbook and the Alienware is a monster. You can't possibly play games on a Dell Mini and the Alienware isn't that small. It's 15". I don't even know whether you can install Mac OS X on the Alienware, but you can install it on a Dell Mini. If you install it on the Dell... you'll run into some issues and you're breaking the EULA. I would get the MacBook. It fits your needs.

    I'm not going to make any recommendation because nobody here even understands what you're thinking.

    that was uncalled for.. as the OP is stating, it could not be the only solution, but I think it's the best one.

    Get the MacBook. It has pretty good graphics. Better than the Dell.
