    I think that your only choice is 12 inch PowerBook. Its $1.499 without SuperDrive. But don't expect to play games such as Halo, UT2004 or Doom 3 at maximum settings as it has only 64 MB of video memory. I think you should save a bit more money and get 15 inch PowerBook with 128 MB video

    For that price, and with your afinity for games, I'm going to have to suggest *gulp*, a PC.

    In that price range, your better off getting a PC. The only way your going to get good gaming on a Mac would be to get a Power Mac, and upgrade the video card, so I guess your stuck with Winblows. They're better for games anyways.

    Well for your budet..........PB 12" Super Drive.

    But if you want full resolution and settings you need a Pm with the X850XT ;)

    get a 12" ibook (fine for everything but gaming)

    then either get one of the gaming consoles PS2/xbox/game cube or put together a PC just for gaming

    macs are pretty poor for gaming, since the ports are often very poorly done and come out months if not a yr after the PC version comes out
    also there isn't a mac desktop w/ upgradeable graphics that's below 2K (the powermac g5, all the imacs and laptops and mac minis don't have upgradeable graphics)

    Actually there is - Lowend PowerMac ( 2x2GHz ) is $1999 which is below 2000 :D

    Seriously, the guy could ge 1.8 SP PowerMac and upgrade it later (it should be discounted now)

    If you're in the US or any place where Apple's education discount is available, I'd get the 12" PowerBook with SuperDrive @ $1499 education,
    then start saving for a PS 3 or an XBox.
