I just have a question for everyone here because I believe you all have your own insight on this subject.

Personally, I think Mac. I love the OS, and just the mac system in general. At the end of the day, go for what YOU want xD.

As Sam said, it's down to opinion entirely, and what you're going to be using it for. The Macbook air, for example, doesn't have a disc drive, so you can't install much software. It is good, however, if you're going to be moving around a lot with it. I think that if you want a Mac, then a Macbook Pro would be a better choice. Mac's really shine when being used for designing, or editing, so if you're really into media, then a Mac is a good choice.

The Sony Vaio is a good all round Windows laptop, and out of the 3, i would personally go for it. It depends which model you go for

I don't have any experience whatsoever with Alienware. All i know is that it's a gaming laptop. If you're looking for a gaming system, then i would go for a desktop PC, as you're getting more bang for your buck.

Could you give me the specs for the Alienware and Sony Vaio laptops that you're considering, so i can give further opinions on them? Thanks a lot Smile

Alienware are pretty powerful laptops too. If you want edit LOTS of stuff, alienware or mac I would say. I use a PC to edit, but it's a massive gaming rig (will post specs soon) so I don't worry about program CPU usage or space.

Yeah, i use my laptop for editing and web design, and it's not particularly powerful (4GB RAM, 2.1GHz dual core), and it works a charm. I also play some games on it (TF2, HL2, L4D etc..). So it really depends what he wants the laptop for.

As said many times, its all down to what you want, I love Mac, and I cant wait till my iMac gets delivered, But what I've read about the Macbook Air, isnt good, and Alienware just cost way too much, so for this, I say go for a Sony Vaio. Sony Vaio have good build quality and though not as powerfull as Alienware, they are good machines.

I agree with this. But it really does depend on what his financial situation is, as well as his needs.
