Any gaming laptops that can run OSX?
Hey all. I really want to purchase a mac laptop. I currently have a 24" imac. It is a amazing machine that does everything I need. I now need a laptop and on nothing that apple has never adressed is the gamers with a decent gaming laptop for a good price. I just cant see myself paying 2k for a laptop. so I was wondering if anyone has a gaming laptop with a great GPU that runs OSX on it. I was looking at this one.

this laptop I can get for $1200 and offers so much more than anything mac can offer portable for the price. Think this can run OSX? or does anyone else run a acer or any other laptopwith a powerfull gaming rig... Thanks for letting me know and im sorry if this has been posted many times over but this listing seems so damn good to pass up.
