Hey everyone, First off, I just want to say that I'm excited about Boot Camp. Being able to run Windows XP and Mac OSX simultaneously on my machine is a dream, for all of the graphics and media editing options that the Mac OS presents and for the vast Windows games support. Reading up exactly on how powerful these new Intel Mac machines have actually been running under Windows, I'm also excited that I'll be able to ditch my mid-range PC to play my Steam games on a new Mac. If it were my first choice, I would definately save up to go for the MacBook Pro. A gig of RAM or so, the 256MB X1800 GPU and a dual-core 2.0GHz processor should definately do it. However, I've heard from some people that Half-Life 2 and other Source titles don't perform quite up to the standards of the desktop models (Why not..?). I hear though that people have been getting some amazing framerates on their iMacs. ------- So, here's my request before deciding on my purchase between a MacBook Pro (portability ftw) and an iMac. I kindly ask that anybody here in this forum -- and I'm positive there are more than a few -- who owns a copy of Half-Life 2 on either their MacBook Pro or iMac, to please do this for me. 1) Turn up your resolution and all of your video settings in Half-Life 2 and Counter-Strike: Source to the max, except leave antialiasing and anisotropic filtering on 2x each. ** 2) Run the Counter-Strike: Source video benchmark test under these mac settings and report in this thread the average frames per second that you recieved. 3) Load up Half-Life 2, open the console and type in cl_showfps 1 to turn on the FPS readout, and report in this thread also the rough average of frames per second you get there. Please be honest! I'm looking for owners of both desktop iMacs and MacBook Pro's to report their results here, please! If you have either, please do this for me, and also include in your post the system specs of your machine. Thanks alot, guys! ** If you want to, crank AA and AF all the way up, too. Those are just the settings I generally am used to playing with on my less-than-average PC.
