    As I said in a previous post, I've also got the new MacBook Pro on order. I think they are great machines, but they really aren't in the same league as the m9750 for gaming. I'm expecting my MBP to function fine for some games, but that's not the primary reason I got it.

    I don't mean to be pushy here but the Area-51 7500 is a desktop and this is the M9750 Owner's Thread. ;) Feel free to create an Area-51 desktop owners thread in our dedicated Desktop Hardware forum.

    No offence but you wont be seeing many games (especially DX10) coming out on the Macs, and I think you mean LCD screen which by the way any glossy screen looks good but with the 8600 you wont be seeing eye-popping DX10 GFX as the desktop 8800GTX is already under huge strain trying to play company of Heroes in DX10 mode. Processor and RAM is good but if you want to game then OSX is NOT the way to go.

    Ever heard of bootcamp? It is a program officially made by Apple that allows Mac computers to run both OSX and a Windows based operating system. Allows mac users to get the best of both worlds, except Macs still will never be designed with gaming in mind like the Alienware M9750. That's why you will never see a Mac with a Go 7950 GTX graphics card much less SLI or a high end DX10 card.

    While I agree with the comment that Macs are not going to compete with the m9750 or similar gaming rigs, it's interesting to note that Apple did highlight renewed gaming development for Macs by EA at WWDC. A start, anyway.

    @ Phritz - the new MacBook Pros do come with an LED/LCD screen.

    Its still LCD, the backlighting is just from LED's, its not an actual screen comprised of LED's like the 15 meter jumbotrons ;)

    @-X-29: Macs are to overpriced to buy for gaming the be, I don't wanna have to BUY service packs (its true, thats all Leopard is and panther... and tiger... etc.) in addition to buying Vista. Not only that but the standard warranty is pitiful. Its good that one company supplies the OS and Hardware because then you don't end up with the manufacturer and Microsoft blaming eachother for problems. With Panther Apple announced 150 breakthrough new features, the most notable was a new Finder a way to see all your open windows at once and some video-messaging software.... what the hell are the other 147 breakthrough new features? (No offence to mac users though, there are plenty of reasons as to why they're better than PC's but I have managed to find more for PCs than Macs

    Agreed. I am writing this from a mac computer, but am looking for a gaming notebook, and it will definitely be a PC for me. Just don't know if it will be this Alienware M9750 or an XPS M1710.

    Never thought of Lepord and Tiger as service packs. That is actually a really good point.
