... is it just me, or do Apple deliberately make the specs of their desktop machines depressingly inflexible? I have a certain computing need in mind - it's nothing outrageous or particularly complicated, I promise you - and I just can't find it in a Mac without having to pay through the nose for additional things that I don't want. Illustration: I want to buy a medium-spec computer with solid gaming capability. DOES NOT COMPUTE I have a 32" LCD TV, so my first thought was to look at the Mac Mini range. Compact, pleasant to look at, not too expensive, great... but try getting a Mac Mini with a half-decent graphics card. So I look at the iMacs, and I figure that 21.5" will be a big enough display when I'm sat right up against it... but again, nothing but rotten onboard graphics available. Which has driven me into the arms of the 27" iMac, and yeah, it's a lovely machine; but it's more machine than I really need, and even then, the graphics card that comes with it is nothing to wet your pants over. I'd say there's a serious power mismatch between an i5 CPU, 4GB of DDR3, and that 18-month old ATI card. Does anyone else agree with me, or am I just a moaning Minnie who's grown too used to building his own PCs...?! Thanks for your thoughts. DH.
