I was going to ask the following question:
Are there any benefits of gaming laptops to the non gamer?
After seeing the list of "questions with similar titles", I saw that a question asking: "best laptop for programming" was closed as off topic.
Although a shopping recommendation question in reality, I am not looking for discussions/opinions but some specific thing that might be too extraneous for non gamers, or if it might be better, as experienced programmers might be able to tell.
I am wondering if this question can be phrased in a way that is acceptable. (I am trying to make a choice between Macbook Pro and Alienware M14x. I need a unix based system for my work, so if I go for Alienware, I might have to install ubuntu.) I was reading the FAQ, and although I may make my question specific enough, the headline defeats me "... is for expert programmers who are interested in conceptual questions on software development." And this question will probably be offtopic
If there is no place for such questions on any SE site, then pointers to other places where reliable answers to these questions can be received will also be appreciated.
