Since this is my first post, I'll talk a bit about myself. I used to use the old Macs when I was little, but started over to PCs when I got to my preteen years. Up until recently, I always regarded Macs as a system with untapped potential, but at the same time, nothing but designer computers or computers for those in graphics design. After hearing my cross coach talk about the things you can do with a mac, and having a go on my uncle's Imac, I'm considering getting an IMac of my own for when I go off to college. However, on my current machine, I like to game (MW2, L4D2, COD4) as well as do my school work. Macs seem like a good option because of their stability, bootcamp, ease of use, (and their sexy looks ) but after doing a bit of research, I'm left with some questions. First off, I've always heard that even with bootcamp, the Macs can never run games in their full glory. However, these videos that I found http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFBuZIOz0Wk (L4D2) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mwy7qcv1-IQ (MW2) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o1uf0fswD_k (Maybe, you can't see the screen) says otherwise. Unless the videos are BS, the games look nice and run quite well. I'm not the kind of person that has to have the sharpest graphics on the block, but I like to have a nice looking (and well-running) game. One question I have is(can't confirm it really with the last video) could I be able to play online with other PC players with bootcamped windows on an IMac? Also, while I'm aware that Imacs are not really upgradable, and Mac Pros are, I can't really justify their cost when I can do what I want with a good Imac. My question is, is the equipment in an Imac good enough to last me a few years with the upcoming games, so that I can buy a new computer when the time comes? Also, I've always heard that Macs have a good resale value. Considering that my mac is in good condition, would I be able to get a good price for a used Imac, helping out the cost with a new mac? Thanks for your help!
