Please, don't flame. I've spent about 10 minutes attempting to dissuade friend from buying an Apple laptop, but his girlfriend wants one that looks stylish and he wants one that can play games. She's helping pick despite him paying it all out of his pocket (it was her idea to get it ). He's willing to spend $1500-1700 and would like a dual boot for some things (Office 2010, Skype, Ventrilo, etc.)
I'm about to cruise around Ben's Bargains, Slickdeals, etc for deals but wanted your input as well.
He's mostly into World of Warcraft, Black Cops , and NBA 2K11.
Also, preferably Intel and GeForce (I don't think Apple even sells AMD/Radeon...but have to make sure).
EDIT Edited title to say "stylish" because that's somehow near the top of the priorities for a computer my friend is buying at his girlfriend's insistence.
Get a 15inch macbook pro, since 13inch only come with onboard graphic.. 15 inch macbook pro has 2 models, the more expensive one come with a better graphic card...
But all macbook pro graphic card is only on mid range level.. If you want a mobile high end graphic card, go MSI, ASUS, Sager, Alienware, etc.. But, it should be enough to play most games..
