    @soulbruva3000 Don’t listen to the people that say not to get a mac if you’re into gaming. The base model should suit you well. You will hardly notice the graphical performance difference with the newest Macbook Pros. It will be able to play almost all new games on max settings so gaming will not be a problem. The 15 inchers are way too expensive though so I would advise you to go refurbished. They are way cheaper that way. Good luck 🙂

    @soulbruva3000 If your into gaming I honestly think you shouldn’t go with a Macbook I think its safe if you go with an Alienware that’s the same price you were going to pay for the Macbook.

    Nice review!
    I’m planning to buy a 15″ Macbook Pro
    But there are 2 bad things i heard about it:
    1. It overheats very fast
    2. It isn’t compatible with a lot of hardware and software

    Can you tell me your experiences about that?

    @jthemano10 If you are not an extreme-hardcore-demanding-user, then an i5 is fine. Also keep in mind that an i5 is using less power than the i7, so you will have extended time on the battery.

    @ProductionDanny If you install an SSD instead of an HDD you will even get a little better battery life. Up to half an hour is possible, because SSDs need much less power than regular HDDs.

    @8AxeProductions8 thanks for the answer bro. but i dont wanna loose my DVD drive. Guess I’ll wait for the prices of the SSD’s to drop before I can get one. 🙂

    @hotdognobun The easiest way to install Lion on a fresh SSD is to first clone it from your harddrive. You attach your new SSD via an external adapter (not expensive). The cloning software then copies EVERYTHING to your new SSD. Then you swap out your old drive for your SSD. (You COULD also use Lion’s own disc management to transfer Lion over, but then you have to go through the hassle of installing all updates & software separately). Check the apple forums for good cloning software.
