It depends if you want to game or not. I love my MacBook Pro for Uni work (I'm a Comp Sci student), however it's not much in the way of gaming.

For productivity go for the MacBook, otherwise go for the ROG.

Get the i7 laptop the performance difference is much better!

If you're going to game, anything's better than a MB.

And I fail to see how a MB makes you more productive.

Though I understand it depends on my need, still, I want to maximize the utility that I gain in purchase one of those two laptop. I do gaming, but not so much since i have PS3, i not even touch it more than 5 times a month.... I somehow want to own a macbook pro too, since i never own one, and want to try since many said it is really good, use it and never get back to PC...

You really can't beat the MacBook for design. The trackpad is unlike any other laptop trackpad I've ever used, it's so smooth.

It is really up to you, I'm not a fanboy (I own both) but I wouldn't trade my MacBook for anything. If you do get one, make sure to get 8GB of RAM.
