    Right, I currently have a Wii, and a family PC in the backroom, and I also have a HDTV in my bedroom...

    Should I get a Mac mini for my room, or get a PS3?

    I have a Mac mini, a DVI to HDMI adaptor, the Apple wireless Keyboard and Mighty Mouse, and Office for Mac priced up for £650. So should I go for this or get a PS3 and some games?

    Umm....
    Depends...
    Do you have a 360? xD
    If not, GET ONE. Trust me, you wouldn't regret it. xD
    PS3 isn't great at all, I had one. Sold it for a 360. So go with the Mac Mini, 'cause Macs are PWN. <3

    .....BWAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAAH! xDDDDD
    Oh, man, that post made no ****in' sense at all.
    Computer games? On a MAC? BWAHA!
    Macs can play almost NO games at all. Seriously. >.>
    Though I'm still partial to Mac's and think they're better because I'm a console gamer.
    MAC PLAYING GAMES. <--- Almost makes no sense. xP

    I still say get a Mac if you don't have one already, which I'm assuming you don't. (Directed at the author of the thread)

    Mac's can play games, but playing games on mac mini's is tricky, with such a crappy graphics card.

    Hardly any games work on a Mac. That wasn't an issue when I got my Mac though, because I don't play games on PCs either.

    Yeah I'm a console gamer so I didn't consider anything about playing games on it, apart from maybe Champ Man :D

    Hmm I've considered the 360 but I think I'd prefer a PS3 so I wouldn't have to buy all the extras that are included with the PS3. Or does the Elite change that? Hmm to be honest I'm not sure between the two...but anyway I think I'll get the Mac because there's enough games that I want on my Wii to keep me occupied (in terms of gaming) for a long time. There's nothing really on the PS3 (apart from F1, man I love F1) or the 360 (except maybe Bioshock), that I particularly want. Obviously that will change when other games come out, like GTA, and others that I can't be arsed thinking of, but for now I'm very happy with my Wii and therefore have no reason (currently) to challenge it.
    I'll be honest, the main reason why I was considering getting a PS3 (or 360) was to experience HD gaming, but that can wait. Also, I'll wait for the outcome of Blu-Ray vs HD-DVD before I get a PS3 or 360 - Blu-Ray wins: the PS3 is mine, HD-DVD wins: I'll get a 360 (with the HD-DVD player of course).

    In conclusion, I'll get a Mac.

    Good choice.
    I don't get how people with PC's manage. Macs are so much better. And who cares about computer gaming anyways? Thats what the Wii is for! You can play games like Worlf of Warcraft on a Mac...

    I'm personally getting the new iMac. They sell for £799.
