    Hi! I need help. I am switching to a newer mac, after being on a PowerMac G4 and some PCs. Do I have to know something negative or positive about the system? I know a ton about Macs, but I do have some unanswered questions.

    For gaming: Which is the best game you ever played on an Intel Mac?
    Should I buy Spore by EA games?

    Boot Camp: How well does it work? Could I buy a PC game and install it via BC? How much space should I dedicate to Windows if I have a, say 640 GB hard drive? 30GB? 60GB?

    Finally, Time Capsule: If you have Time Capsule, please tell me if you have had any bad experiences with it.

    Thanks!

    1: Check out aspyr.com. What Mac do you intend to game on? Call of Duty 4 should work on the newer Macs and is a fantastic game.

    2: It is basically turning your iMac into a PC, and it works like another PC would. You can play most PC games with this solution (its actually the best solution for gaming). Size is depends on your planned tasks. My gaming PC with all of games installed need a minimum of 300GB (I have a lot of games :p). 60GB might be enough for you.

    3: I don't have one, but you can check out cnet.com for good consumer product reviews. I know they have one for the AirPort, so there is a good chance of their being a Time Capsule review.
