    Dell XPS 16 with the RGBLED screen upgrade should be a reasonably priced machine (should still be lower priced than most if not all Mac Book Pros... I managed to config one with this screen at only S$2199) with better colour than the Mac Book Pros... but still a glossy screen, I believe... save the money and get a screen profiling solution (will need it as it's an "extended gamut" screen) and a matte screen protector... YMMV

    but the best laptop screens should actually be in two HP models, their Dreamcolor screens in their 2 mobile workstation (and very expensive) Elitebook models 8740w and 8540w, which are probably the only 8bit IPS screens in current laptops...

    haha

    That's the same notebook I got, but the battery life is really horrible and it heats up like crazy.
    Yes, for 16-17" Dell XPS 16 is a good alternative...but if you consider the battery life and resale value, ( Apple old notebooks have astonishing resale ) then, Apple still better.

    I went back and forth between Apple and Dell XPS.
    I did my best to change, but I just hate how Apple forces you to do things their way or the highway.....

    HP has good alternatives, but both their prices and weight is WOW !

    For most laptops you probably need to dip them in liquid nitrogen. The Apple laptops are notoriously know to run super hot these days. I sold all my macbooks and replace them with a desktop. I know that doesnt help much but for the occasional photoshopper, a macbook with lots of RAM or a decent laptop with similar specs (cheaper too!) would be fine. What you really need to invest your money is a good and large display. Maybe I am just pampered with a large display that i find even the 17" laptop's screen too small. Hehe. Hope that helps.
