So basically, I got this mac when i was 14... its a white macbook, got it from my parents for christmas... I regret thinking it was the greatest thing ever, now im 19 and im like.. really? 1500 for this? Don't get me wrong its a good machine but.. i checked the prices of dells and alienware laptops from back then and its like the same price if not .. cheaper. So, once this dies out in a year or so.. since the fan is constantly goin crazy when im watching youtube videos, I think I want to get a good pc laptop, but I want to install linux on it, my first experience with linux goes back to 5 yrs ago, my brother owned a really cool custom water cooled pc, which he had linux installed on and he had all these great games and had everything running so smoothly, while on mac ill be running firefox and itunes or word and the beach ball shows up. So my question is where do I start?
However, I have an Asus G73, which still games very well, and it has never over-heated. It is a very nice gaming laptop, so I would look at the Asus series. I believe that they are on the G75 now, which are also very nice. My friend has one.
don't even bother looking now if it's going to last another year - new, faster more powerful processors and systems will be out in the next quarter that are even newer technology than what's available today.
