So Im currently on my first year of University about to finish my first semester. I'm doing a Computer Games Design course so I use programs like Corel Painter, Photoshop, Maya and the Unreal Engine. I would love a Macbook Pro to help with my studies and work but I just cant bring myself to buying one. I just want someone to justify the price tag for me. I was comparing the 17inch model to a Alienware M17x, and the specs of an Alienware are by miles, better. The only thing I see the Alienware is missing out on is the Glass Trackpad and a weaker battery. Ofcourse in terms of design the MBP is much nicer, but is it worth paying that bit extra for a nice looking laptop. Would just like someone to justify the price for me, the alienware has a GTX260m aswell, which to my knowledge is miles better than the 9600m. (Not forgetting the Blu-ray Drive also). So yeah, some advice would be great please! Thanks in Advance!
