Why I Picked Alienware Over MacBook

Choosing between two extremely high-end laptops can be tough. Both the Alienware and MacBook offer amazing specs, sleek designs, and more power than you’ll probably ever need. However, there are several reasons why I picked the Alienware over the MacBook – here are the top three: 1) The alienware has a better cooling system 2) The alienware offers more RAM 3) The alienware has an SSD and an HDD combo while the Macbook only has a SSD

Apple Products

I’m a huge fan of Apple products. I’ve always been a huge fan, since the day I used my first one as an undergrad and left my home for college. These are the reasons why I stick with them: 

The Mac is really easy to use Alienware aurora 2019. That’s not to say that it’s easy to learn how to use; it just requires less effort than Windows does for me, and it allows me the flexibility of using multiple devices on different operating systems. The hardware lasts longer. When you spend $2000 on a laptop, what you want is for that thing to last 10 years- and in those 10 years, we’ll see new processors come out at least 3 times (2 generations). 

There’s less malware because there are fewer people using Macs. You don’t get as much spam either because most people aren’t looking at your inbox if they can’t get into your computer in the first place!


I needed to buy a new computer, so my best friend offered to help me pick out one. While we were looking through the available options at Best Buy, he told me about how Macs are overrated and recommended that I go with an alienware machine instead MacBook 12in m7. Turns out that he was right, and now my gaming experience has gone up tenfold. It’s not just the hardware; it’s also the way that they optimized their OS. All of these little tweaks made playing on this computer way better than it ever was on any other laptop or desktop that I’ve used before.

Dell vs. Alienware

I would say that one of the biggest differences between Dell and Alienware is design. When you purchase a computer from Dell, it doesn’t scream Alienware. You see things like a stitched back, thinner bezel around the screen, and even a signature logo on the back for those who care about logos. The thing with Alienware is that they go all out in terms of style, shape, and construction to create this gaming-inspired product. There’s an aluminum baseplate inside and outside that helps dissipate heat. There’s also the iconic honeycomb grills, which are a trademark look for Alienware products. With Apple laptops, there isn’t as much going on in terms of design. Sure, there’s a lot going on when it comes to what you can do with them (if you can afford it), but if we’re talking looks then I think Alienware is more than comparable here.

The Decision

I decided to purchase the new Alienware 17 because of its premium design, gaming capabilities, and diverse customization options. The best thing is that it only costs $2,299.00 (compared to the price of $3,499 for Apple’s Macbook Pro 17 inch) 

This lower cost laptop is great for someone like me who needs a high-end PC for video editing and other intensive work. It is also VR ready! That means if you want to immerse yourself in another world while using your computer then this is the perfect machine for you. And with an Intel Core i7 Quad-Core processor, 16 GB RAM, 512GB SSD hard drive and NVIDIA GTX 1060 graphics card there are few limits on what you can do with this device.

So there are some reasons why I went with the Alienware 17 over a MacBook.

Gaming on Windows 10

It can take a bit of time for some new games to release an update to take advantage of Windows 10, but as with most games you will find that it runs more smoothly. Plus, you have access to the entire Steam library of gaming goodies (including Team Fortress 2 and Left 4 Dead 2). Sure, there are a few exceptions, like Rise of the Tomb Raider, but those are still coming!
