Hi guys I really need a new laptop for work and play as my old netbook wind is just too old. I need to get a small form computer as well to work on my university work at home, too. Looking to play some PC games on the laptop and at home but prefer to play on console xbox 360 or One, PS4. 

I really want to play civ 5, total war napolean but no FPS, except the original withcher.

I will also need to edit ma go pro so should I get a macbook pro and a windows based home theatre PC or a mini mac and a good ultrabook laptop. I will need windows on the lappy too.

I need to access mac for uni too so what do you guys recommend


Macbook pro + small HTC or Alienware computer + mac mini.


Thanks for your help

Beef up a MacBook Pro 13".  You can always run Bootcamp to have Windows as well as the Mac OS.

Intel i7 3770k | Corsair 32GB Kit DDR3 | Vengeance C9 1600MHz | Samsung 250gb SSD | WD Caviar Green 3tb | WD Caviar Green 2tb | Seagate Barracuda 4tb | WD Black 2TB | AFOX GeForce GTX660 | TI ASRock Z77 Fatal1ty Professional LGA1155 ATX | Thermaltake Chaser A31 USB3.0 Black Mid Tower | Samsung 21.5" HD LED x 2 | Corsair AX860 860W 80PLUS

ditch windows if u can.

mac pro + mini :)


you can easily hookup a bigger screen to your mac for gaming, given the graphics card is all ok.
