Yeah, I'll stand by what I said about looks. Those machines all looked dumb. I hate when you have all these ridiculous graphics and shaped shells.
Mac laptops are customizable. I never said you have total control, but the way you said it makes it seem like EVERY model of mac comes with only one available setup.
Over the summer, after I work for a few months, to pay my rent, I'm going to drop 600 bucks or so on a custom PC (need everything but a new HD). I have it just about all planned out. I want it so I can run Vista, and play all the sweet-ass DX10 games coming out (pumped for GuildWars2) I think I'll just skin my old PC and use that case. maybe sell the old parts. Don't think that I don't appreciate an awesome gaming rig. But I don't want it looking like a f***ing Alien!
I don't use a computer just for games and entertainment. I use it to work. Sure, those gaming rigs are cool if all you do is just use it for games, but I also want utility out of my laptop....That's why I bought a Mac Laptop. (next to) top of the line, and I freakin love it. It does everything I wanted it for and more. Like I previously stated, the Hardware will run GuildWars and CS source at top video settings VERY smoothly. Now running CS:S at top video settings is no easy task, so the hardware on my Mac laptop is obviously proficient. Given it gets real hot, but that's what cooling stands are for.
Oh, and whoever said that macs don't get viruses cause no one cares enough about macs to make them? That's not it. Macs ask you, whenever a program tires to install, to put in your administrative password. If you're just chatting, or whatever, and you see a window pop up asking to install a program. DON'T CLICK IT! That's you have to be just downright dumb to get a virus on a mac, just about the only way to get it is it give it to yourself.
Macs are not "Simple" they have minimalistic architecture and are user friendly. If you know what you're doing there is a lot of advanced stuff you can do on a Mac. Darwin = a dream to use. Unix FTW!
I'm sorry if I offended you. But I'm going to defend Macs, it's just what I do. I like them, you don't have to. If you don't like what I say, just let it slide.
I got finals tomorrow. Peace

Sigh, your hopeless. But Thats ok, good luck on your finals. I hope your not a CS major.Originally Posted by tank
As for running Counter Strike Source on max.. lol just about any computer can do that. Counter strike source runs off the half life 2 engine and has less resource heavy features than HL2. If all you can do is Run CS:S and GW, then im sorry. Macs are not made for games, they are made for running simple applications. Being able to run CS:S is like bragging my PSP can run Super Mario World (snes).
As for the cases, you dont have to be a gamer to enjoy a powerful or cool looking system. At least PC users get the choice of how their PC looks. The only use i found on a mac was using final cut pro, but even then problems were common and I was able to do just as much and more with PC based video editing software. If you are into programming, Linux is the way to go. PCs will always have the upper hand on Macs. But hey, mac fanboys are almost as bad as nintendo ones.
I will still use a mac if i have to, but its usually a painful process.
