So I'm looking to buy myself a laptop/desktop for gaming as well as programming and animating. Now I've looked around and I can either go for the Alienware M17x laptop or build a machine myself for the same price, what should I go for?
I am into programming so being mobile is beneficial but would I be foolish in buying the M17x instead of building a desktop?
