Yeah they are. A lot cheaper.

Origin PC off the top of my head.

MBP is like buying a Corvette and paying LaFerrari prices.

its not fair to use "LaFerrari" in any kind of comparison or argument, no one can resist laughing at the name.

You can get any alienware that exceeds the performance of a macbook pro for less than 2K, and probably more like $1850. Macbook pro of equivalent specs are 2,800.

Alienware AKA Dell isn't much better.

alienwares are also ginormous. does it have the retina display?

A guy building computers in his basement is not really a valid comparison to a mainstream, off the shelf computer.

Alienware used to be ginormous.

You mean slightly better than the 1080p that you want to look under a magnifying glass? I don't care what you buy but if you think your 2800 dollar macbook is worth it you're a tard and deserved to be ripped off.

They are large, but they're geared for gaming and thus need more coolers as they can run some pretty intense graphic options. I'm not saying MBP's are ****, just that they're ridiculously overpriced for what they are.

Im actually going to agree with pete on this one, for once.

I don't think you can find exterior hardware that beats macpros for the price.
I also have never owned a mac product.

Also, alienwares are decently flimsy too.

People pay 2800 for their word processing, movie playing, internet surfing laptop and take forever to render movies/photos and have hardly any space to store them..

What alienwares have you guys been using, I was at CES this year the alienwares have a tough exterior.

Alienware and Origin both have comparable hardware for hundreds less with options for MUCH more powerful hardware that Apple doesn't offer.

Bro, just carry a couple external hard drives. Nevermind that it forces you to concede portability, which is the only reason you'd buy a MBP over any other product.

Can't beat macbook. I use and abuse my **** and apple stuff never fails me. You'll never catch me with a phone or computer that isn't an apple.

Ex: I spilled a glass of milk across my keyboard, I just poured the milk out of the computer and wiped it off. No worries.

you do realize you can do this with almost any computer

edit:
look at all the shattered iphone screens, and all the accessories that make them bulky to protect them
I dunk my phone unmodified in beer and drop it naked on concrete, no problems

I doubt my viao would have lived through that.

13" screen is perfect. It's a laptop not a desktop.

My mom has the 17" macbook and it's just ridiculous.

I agree with that completely as far as interior components go. I was speaking purely about the case its self.

Personally, I have an Asus u30jc and couldn't be happier, but a pro is much less flimsy.
