OMG Steam for Mac! OMG now I can play games and be hip at the same time. OMG
Simple: The ONLY thing I use Windows for is gaming. Now I use strictly OSX.

Hahah. OMG i laughed when I looked at the specs of the Mac for 3299.

This is just highway robbery for such a junky system.

You know what I hate about the mac release, the new releases aren't new releases anymore... Every time they port a game to Mac it shows up as a new release for me... ****ing annoying. Makes it so hard to buy more games.

Those are VERY interesting. Thanks for sharing.

I know a lot of people on these boards have said they would go to mac exclusively if they could game. This isn't it yet but it sure is close.

Well sometimes the re-released games goes on sale... But it is annoying I agree

Tried Portal and Torchlight on Mac few days ago. It actually ran pretty decent at 1920x1200 with everything maxed and 2x MSAA. It slowed down when I set # of portal at 9.

Torchlight ran smoothly most of time, until a lot of stuff going on the screen it dips a bit. Hopefully Nvidia is going to work with Apple to release newer drivers often... to bring in performance improvement for OpenGL.
