Default Awesome deal should I go for it? - 12-04-2010, 02:07 AM

Hey guys,


I'm here to ask you opinion for a deal I'm getting at Best Buy,

it's for an open box stock Alienware Aurora ALX with a discount of 800$ plus

Bose Companions 2

No-Break

Extended warranty for both of the computers,

Dell 24" Display

thing is I always have been running on Mac OS and I love it, but I maybe could get a Mac Mini to finish the beast!!! So guys what you think?

Sorry what does FYI means?

For the 1012 I might just sell it since I have a 10v running OS X like a dream!

Edit:

for your information lol srry, but what you think is it good? I'm needing to buy a new computer so it could be the one just I'm not sure for running Win 7 only or probably Linux but still not sure, any thoughts ?

Actually, OS X support for the 1012 is improving - meklort is working on it.

Yeah I've seen it but no graphics acceleration so far, but I'm more concerned about the Aurora actually, do you think is there any chance of running OS X on it, since I'm in Mexico I'd get the LA version which has ATI Radeon HD 5770, same graphics in Mac Pros!!

FYI = For your information

FYI if you buy a dell at Bestbuy you fail. Enjoy wasting your money to the box store. Order directly from their site, cut out the corporate giant monster of terrible deals.

Not only that they claim to be the cheapest and match a lower price plus discount. Yeah good effing luck. Go get a receipt of a cheaper item from Costco//BJ's//Sam's Club and find out what they tell you, haha.
