  1. “The Macintosh is an excellent gaming platform for casual games…”

    That’s the truth, because most of the 3D gaming market is in the price range of a consumer iMac, which is a non-upgradable device.

    3D gamers need to be able to upgrade the video card at least a few times, because the CPU performance in games isn’t needed as much as GPU performance.

    I’m one of the lucky few who could have afforded a Dual Processor PowerMac G5 a few years back, I’ve upgraded the video card three times so far, the hard drives in a RAID 0 twice and the monitor twice.

    Still only using one CPU when I 3D game.

    Now my favorite gaming device is the PS3. A nine core Cell processor that equals my PowerMac in performance for a mere $400 AND it includes a High Definition BlueRay DVD player.

    It plays nice on my 60″ HD-TV, compared to my smaller 30″ Cinema.

    So what does that tell you? In general the PC (and Mac) 3D gaming market is headed for a swift death. Especially since these consoles have their own web browsers now.

    Casual games exactly.
