    I cant even type it because the computer become slower at 300% zoom. Im using Mac Pro 2010 and I have no idea why is it happening.

    The more work the computer has to do,the slower it gets,and when compared to dedicated gaming machines like Alienware or similar,a Mac is usually extremely slow,Soo,next time,be prepared with coffee and sandwiches.

    It depends. If it's a 2010 computer versus a brand new Alienware or something, sure.

    From what I seen in benchmark tests,a 5 year old Alienware laptop is faster than my 3 year old MacBook Pro.

    Benchmarks are useless. Besides that doesn't take into account things like battery life, trackpad, etc....

    I am fully aware of that,but my post was only about processor speed.
    For most normal users,the difference in delay between a dedicated game computer and a normal Mac or MacBook is probably not a big problem,a few seconds more processing time does not matter unless you're a hardcore gamer.
