They are ideal for 3D work, but not a for gaming. If your going to need mobility then get the laptop, but otherwise, i would go with the desktop and get more bang for your buck. desktops are usually much cheaper for the same performance. | Report abuse Related ressources Quadro vs. GeForce > The Best for AutoCad, Solidworks, Sketchup, CS6 ? - Forum Quadro Tesla GeForce - Forum Quadro 2000 or 3000 replacement for GeForce 670m - Forum Quadro with geforce - Forum Graphics card upgrade quadro vs geforce - Forum Ask the community Publish angaddev January 31, 2012 2:33:27 PM quadro | Report abuse angaddev January 31, 2012 2:33:42 PM and turn off ur caps | Report abuse vporrash1402 January 31, 2012 3:02:24 PM thanks guys im sorry for caps i wasnt paying attention... i think ill go with the precission since mobility is really important for me but i dont know how mucho better will the precission be since it come with a real basic configuration a very costly thanks | Report abuse Rockdpm January 31, 2012 3:14:30 PM Hm well if you could provide the final specs on the Alienware.
