I have a tough decision to make and I don't know what to do...advice please... I sold my almost new G4 PowerBook back in January because I new I would want to upgrade to the Intel Macs (first Mac in a long time). I am about ready to order my new computer, but I find myself missing some things on my Windows box...mainly the gaming capabilities...I travel a lot with my laptops and would really like to play some of my games on it...ugh! Any idea if more game developers will port their games to Macs now that they are running Intel based chips? I am also getting into real estate and 99% of the real estate/finance software on the market is PC only...especially what most realtor offices use...any thoughts or programs I should know of here?? I also like to dual boot Linux (ubuntu) and I am learning to code C++ and OpenGL. Does anyone have much experience with the PPC versions of linux? How do they work compared to the same distro on a PC? What about C++ compilers, etc?? Also, I know the MacBook Pro's offer the ATI x1600 video card and the higher end model offers the 256MB vRam...is this worth the several hundred dollars extra seeing as how there aren't many high end games for the Mac?? Don't know what else would really take advantage of this...??? I am finding it hard to come up with reasons to purchase the MacBook Pro...and Dell and Alienware running some great deals doesn't make matters any better... HELP ME COME UP WITH REASONS TO STICK WITH APPLE...I REALLY WANT TO BUT I JUST DON'T KNOW!!
