    Questions about a new laptop
    Okay, I have an iMac, so I'm happy there. However, I wanna save up (and I've got a bit of money stored away now) and buy a laptop. Here's my choices right now, what I'm considering.

    iBook 12" and max out the Hard Drive (I consume a LOT of Hard Drive space)
    An Alienware (the cheapest one they got- Alienwares are rediculously expensive, even the low-end ones)

    That's what I was thinking so far. See, I want something that runs Rome: Total War (Not necessary, I have other machines to run it, but would prefer a newer one... either way i don't mind. If it can, it's like a plus) but still fits a tight budget, because I burned a lotta cash on my iMac. Plus, there are other things in life that need money.... So, what do you think? Should I wait on the iBook because I hear they're gonna change it around a bit with Intel and all that... or should I get the Alienware? Or, do you guys have a suggestion?

    I'm not buying a Dell XPS, I had one and it sucked. I returned the M140 Dell XPS laptop two weeks after I got it (and got the new iMac instead, and lemme tell ya this thing blows the Dell away).

    So, one of those, wait, or suggestions of your own?

    if you like macs, certainly go for the ibook. However, i warn you that installing a larger hard drive your self won't be too easy.. it takes patience, as there are over 25 diffenret types of screws you need to keep track of.
    if you need a PC, go for the ailienware ones. they are nice, but personally i still like macs better.

    Like you said, alienwares are overpriced.
    And if you go low-end, I believe that one has a celeron and integrated graphics?
    That kinda ruins the point of an Alienware...
