So I am a student who will be headed to university in September. As such, I will need a computer. I would like it to be portable, but also capable off running games such as Civilization 5, Star Craft, and perhaps Mass Effect. When I look at Apple's line up, there doesn't seem to be anything that much attractive. The Macbook only has integrated graphics and a Core2Duo. The 13inch MacBook Pro is the same as the MacBook except you are paying $200 for 2 GB of ram and a metal case. The 15inch MacBook Pro only offers a crappy graphics card. Not only that, but they won't let you purchase the card with 512 MB of ram without getting the most expensive computer. I have also looked into the desktops. The mac mini offers, again, nothing spectacular. The iMac is severely underpowered for its cost. So what are my options? Would any of these computers be remotely acceptable for a couple games? I am not really keen on switching platforms since all of my software is already for OS X. Is it possible to purchase something for cheap (under $1000) that could be able to run a few games? Just started looking into this I thought I would hear what you guys say.
