    do not mean any malice in this post

    but you make the iMac sound like a phone with that request.

    Check Steam for some good native OSX games. No need to buy a copy of windows for some decent casual gaming.

    I don't agree with this. The only games I play on Windows are the ones I really want to play and don't have a Mac option. With that said, I am finding myself more and more, skipping games that don't do a Mac version or port.

    As for Mac games... All you recent Blizzard games (Diablo 3, Starcraft 2, WoW) have Mac versions. Both Steam and GoG have Mac games available.

    Some specific Mac games:

    Witcher 1&2
    Dragon Age 1&2
    Galaxy on Fire 2 HD was pretty fun
    Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition (should be coming out soon for Mac)
    Torchlight 1 (and soon TL2)
    Some of the Call of Duty games are on the Mac App Store
    Civilization games

    The list is much longer, but those are the ones that come to mind. I realize my list is RPG heavy, but that's mostly what I play these days.

    I use apps like Yoink, Memory Scope, Alfred and MacCleanse on my MBP.
    I'm also gonna get MagicPrefs for the magic mouse when I receive my new iMac :D It's not on the app store though.

    Yoink: A buffer in the side of the screen where you can place files when moving between folders (very useful, love the app)

    Memory Scope: RAM control.

    Alfred: An expanded version og the integrated spotlight.

    MacCleanse: Tool to help you clean up thrash files on your mac.
