MacBook Pro vs. Alienware: Which One is Right For You?

Macbook Pro vs. Alienware: Which is better for you? The short answer, though, is that both systems offer lots of power and premium features at very different price points. Let’s take a closer look at each one, and help you decide which system is best for your needs and budget. ###



I’m going to break this down in as much detail as possible to make it easier for everyone to see the differences and similarities of these two laptops. The Macbook will be listed first and then the Alienware, so if anyone wanted to skip ahead that would work just fine. The first thing we’ll look at are the screens and processors.

First off, the Macbook has a screen size of 2304×1440 pixels with a pixel density of 227 pixels per inch (PPI). Meanwhile, the Alienware’s screen size is 1920×1080 with a PPI of 133. And lastly on screens and processors, they both have Intel UHD Graphics 620 graphics cards which do not support 4K resolutions or HDR videos.


Comparison 1 – Design and Form Factor

The Macbook 12in M7 and the Alienware Aurora 2019 share a number of similarities in terms of design and form factor, such as the brilliant display, compact footprint and sleek keyboard. They differ primarily in the size of their screens and CPU’s capabilities. The Macbook 12in M7 has a much smaller screen, but has more powerful CPU’s.

The Alienware Aurora 2019 has a larger screen, but weaker CPU’s than the Macbook 12in M7.

Both computers are beautifully designed devices that are slim and lightweight with powerful processors that deliver great performance.


Comparison 2 – Specifications

The Macbook 12in M7 has a powerful Quad-core 3.3 GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 512 GB of fast solid-state storage, and 8GB of memory and can keep up with pretty much anything thrown its way. Its battery life spans up to 10 hours which is quite impressive! For the budget conscious buyer looking for a machine that will have power when they need it, the Macbook is perfect. On the other hand, the Alienware Aurora 2019 offers some really great specs at an affordable price as well!


Comparison 3 – Performance

The new Mac will be powered by an 8th-generation Intel Core i5 processor, which is fast enough to deliver a very smooth experience whether you are typing out documents or playing games with friends on the couch. It’s also notably more powerful than Apple’s last laptop from 2017, and this version of the MacBook can keep up with today’s powerful video editing and gaming PCs at a fraction of the cost.


Comparison 4 – Gaming Performance

While the raw horsepower of a desktop may outdo that of a laptop, laptop gaming can be just as good as a desktop with the right configuration and specs. This often starts with high-performance processors like Intel’s Core i7 and Core i9 processors or AMD’s Ryzen CPUs with multi-core configurations to support higher frame rates in games and play graphics intensive titles on high settings. Laptops also offer lower thermals, which means they’re less likely to overheat when playing demanding games. A new development in recent years is NVIDIA’s Max Q program that offers an extensive line of ultra-thin laptops specifically designed for gaming performance at significantly lower prices than their thicker counterparts. Some even have displays with resolutions up to 4K and NVIDIA’s G-Sync technology built into them.



So what was the verdict on which one of these laptops is best for us to invest in, or which one we would prefer? The Macbook 12in M7 versus the Alienware Aurora 2019 is a tough decision, because both of them have their pros and cons. However, if you’re looking for a laptop that is overall more affordable and efficient, then it would be best to invest in the MacBook 12inch M7. On the other hand, if you are looking for a gaming laptop with an expensive price tag but doesn’t compromise on performance, then the Alienware Aurora 2019 might just be your cup of tea!
