1. Macs are much more expensive, and for most of us that's an issue. Also they are hard to upgrade, and when you can find an upgrade, it's quite expensive. My friend spent like $600 on an 800mhz PROCESSOR. 2. If you are a gamer, you are better off with a PC, they have a wider selection of games, and I mean MUCH wider selection. 3. Here are my friends computer stats: 512mbs of ram 800mhz G4 ATI Radeon 9000 64mbs of ram He can hardly play Medal of Honor: Allied Assult at max res with the details jacked up with out getting computer lag. I could do this with my old GeForce 4 ti4200 and get like 100fps. 4. bf1942 rocks, let me find a website selling it and I"ll link it. I just looked at like 6 websites including ebay and found nothing. I don't think it's out for Macs.

yeah macs suck when it comes to trying to find a decent game coz nobody makes games for them. i dont see why though coz macs are specialised graphics machines and although they may cost a little more they come with everything already in them. no need to get a graphics/sound card for example. so in theory they are better for gaming than PCs, but in practice... well... :( oh yeah and bobdole's sig is hypocritical :argue: :spamtastic

Unfortunately where the Macs specialised in was 2D graphics, they were very big in drafting, graphic design, even video editing, but until recently it was hard to get a decent 3D card for the Mac. Many PC's these days come with sound and graphics built in - many Dell's for instance. all-in-one mobo's for PC's are very common, but they all have one other thing in common, they all suck at gaming. Give me a decent mobo woth a AGP vid card and seperate sound card any day, when a new game comes out instead of upgrading the entire computer to play it I can just upgrade the vid card.

BF1942 is NOT available for the Mac (despite rumours to the contrary from further up the thread, I think that was a mistype), and very few games are ported to the mac cause of their incompatible architecture, it's a big job moving a game to the Mac, and all that work for just a few percent of computer owners is probably not worth it to many of the developers. Yes a G4 mac at a given clock speed can outperform a P4 at the same clock speed (like Athlons, superior architecture) but for $600 you can get a 3Gh P4 or Athlon - and the Mac can't compete with that.

have fun mate
