    I know most people won't appreicate this but you get games on OS X and also if its windows you can use boot camp and boot directly into windows and still play PC style games with a keyboard and mouse shock - horror

    LOL

    Not trying to fight / flame war or nothing just re iterating ( the obvious )

    Yeah, dual booting is an option I hadn't considered.

    Still, if it was me and I did play games I wouldn't want to close everything else down, and reboot it into a windows environment where I'd still need AV/etc kept up to date.

    No flame war/fight Shane, just friendly banter

    What I dont get is why did vmware fusion limit you to 2 cpu's when I have 2 quad cores ( 8 cores in total ) couldnt I use one quad core for windows and one for the mac ?

    and they need to give you more 3D acceleration on a vm so you can just full screen the VM and play a game - would make more sense

    Not sure where it is but I saw a youtube video on a Mac Pro 2008 with an Nvidia 8800GT where the user had dual screens and was playing a 3D game in a VM

    Will just say one last thing before you decide - go into an apple store and see what you think to the apples and have a go on them

    If you still dont want and dont like them ( @ the asker of this question btw ) then fair enough.

    A Mac is nice
    SOME Macs are a PITA.

    They do however have some issues:

    Poor hardware reliability
    Crappy GPUs
    Printing

    Nice things:

    Target disk mode

    I went into the apple store (we call it a green grocer) and got some braeburns, russets, cox's and granny smiths. I like russets best.

    Anyway, I think I'm done winding you up now (you take the bait every time... it's like when someone calls Marty McFly "chicken" ).

    To prove to you I'm not completely closed minded, I have actually recommended macs to a few people in the past... it all depends what they've wanted to do. I'd never recommend one to my Mum, but I would to my brother. Different kinds of users basically.

    Wouldn't have one myself... I'm an Open Source fanboy

    Oooh we had some of those switches. They were rubbish!
