It is so much easier shopping for an Apple product. There is not an infinite number of choices like there seemingly is with the PC. The biggest obstacle with so many choices is making the decision over what you want or what need. Like so many computer users I really am not burning up the processor. I use Microsoft Office products and Adobe Creative products. Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom may be my heaviest players, and they don’t really require all that much power. After all I have been using a 7 year old MacBook Pro and an old Dell PC that is equally as old. Everything works just fine. Knowing this really sucks the joy out of buying a new kit. And herein lies the reason most of us buy what we want over what we actually really need.
For me, what I wanted was a PC that will easily last me the next 5 years. I dabble in Web development and a little C# Visual Studio programming and as such I do feel I have an obligation to be a bit geeky. So what I wanted was something I felt was very cool. The PC Gamers of the world live on the edge of coolness, and at the very same time their choice in powerful PCs equally works well in the productivity realm as it does in the gaming environment. I have been using Dell PCs for 15 plus years and Dell also makes Alienware Gaming laptops. Alienware laptops are powerhouses, look cool, and meets the marketing requirements for The Big Bang Theory as Sheldon has an Alienware laptop. Coolness factor ranks right up there. There was also MSI and Razor computers but Dell offered up my laptop and an exceptional price point. How could I say no? How would any other viable solution provide the same thrill? Computing is logic, except when it comes to purchasing the too on which you will be so logical. And less we forget, I use the computer for many creative endeavors. Decision made: Alienware it is..
