Hey guys, I guess you guys get a lot of questions like this, but I am hoping mine is slightly different. If it isn't, my apologies, and thank you in advance for help. The situation is this: The graphics card on my windows machine has been having problems, so I decided to get a mac. I have been getting into movie editing, photo editing, work with garage band (on my ibook g4) and some web design. I would like to do all that, but also play some games with Crossover Games, games that worked on windows but there is no mac version of. Specifically, I want to be able to play Counter Strike and other games on the Steam platform, like day of defeat, maybe some team fortress 2 or The Ship. What my question is, I guess, is can integrated graphics of the macbook handle counter strike games? Even games on the Source engine like counter strike: source? Or would I just be better off with an imac? How would a macbook or imac handle battlefield games? I'll be fine if I have to give up battlefield, but I would really like to keep playing Counter Strike. One more thing: I have heard that the macbook's have hardware failures after 2 years, specifically hard drive failures (sometimes, but more often then just random hardware failures, like there is an actual problem other then just a few 'lemon' pieces of hardware). While this isn't a huge problem, I guess I can just buy another hard drive or whatever and have apple install it, I'd rather it lasted at least another year, bringing the life of the hardware/hard drive to 3 years. I've always thought computers were supposed to last 3 years, and I've had some 'hand me down' apple computers that have lasted longer then that. The only reason I ask between imac and macbook is that a macbook is a little bit cheaper, and a macbook is portable. While I don't do a lot of moving around, having a more portable computer for 'in the field' music or editing work would be nice, but certainly not required. Thank you guys (and girls) a lot. I appreciate the help and sorry for the kind of long post.
