  1. Hey guys so my alienware MX15 is well umm...sorta broken, see I was playing left for dead 2 with my friends and a zombie jumped at me out of nowhere while i was drinking tea and soyeah, you can put 2+2 together. Now to laptop what i liked:
    It was a monster the performance from it was amazing just as good a desktop and thats about it. What i didn't was that it was HUGE! i mean massive and thick!
    What i would like in my new one:
    As THIN as POSSIBLE! (very important)
    AS powerful as possible
    Size would be from 15.4" - 17" (no bigger)
    Now bugdet, right now i don't care as long as the laptop fits the specs.
    Regards,

    Thin and gaming laptop may be a difficult one to come by. Have you looked into another Alienware?

    My mate has one and plays games with us on it (StarCraft 2, Battlefield BC2, World Of Warcraft). Although he has to dual boot it for Windows games. Not sure it he is still running Bootcamp or some other software to allow this. But since the Apple machines can run windows installs there isn't a huge problem gaming on them. Buying an additional OS license can be a problem though.

    Give us the hardware of the Apple you are looking at and the cost.
