    if it was a choice of mac or ps3 - i'd always go for a new mac.

    I love gaming - but I love my mac's more ;) :D

    it depends. if you desperately need a computer, then go for it. if your current one is sufficient, get the ps3.

    I'd certainly go with a new Mac. :) The PS3 is nice and all, but, yeah I'd still go with Mac.

    The only thing weird about your poll is that choice 1 & 2 are pretty much the same so why 3 choices when 2 would have sufficed.

    Ya, I'd wait for 10.5, then buy the new Mac. And after that save up for you console(which I'd say not the PS3, but I'm sure you've looked at the other system, or have the both)

    I would go with a Mac after Leopard comes out. PS3 is fun but computer much more versatile.

    I think it comes down to.

    Do you want a computer or a console?

    As I've said before, never chose a games machine over a computer or anything used as a creative device.

    The PS3 has one game to play. The Mac can do a million things! Get a mac. I'd wait another year till there is atleast 5 games to play before spending that much money

    Aye on a new Mac. A PS3 in a year. Like any console, it should have quite a bit more going for it.

    It clocks in at about a 1.8Ghz G5 from linux benchmarks, so pretty cool. :)

    If only it could legally run OS X, than it would be an awesome investment, but Linux... :eek:

    yep. have a wii... absolutely love it. now i want another set-up. looked into the 360 but the PS3 sounds like a better buy. (blu-ray drive vs. standrd dvd drive; built-in wireless vs. not built in wireless; free internet vs. not free internet; 60 gig HDD vs. 20 gig HDD; HDMI vs. no HDMI... any questions?) i need a mac more though because this computer set-up that i have (12'' G4 powerbook) is seeing its age. just posted this question to get a little input. thtnk you guys!

    If I were in your position, I would chose the Mac. Now, choosing between a new Mac and a Wii...that's a bit tougher. :)

    results speak for themselves.

    36 get a mac
    2 get a ps3

    If it was who wants to be a millionare and you just asked the audience - I think you can call that result a 'safe bet'.
