Here's my current situation... I have a dual gig power mac g4 with Radeon 9800 Pro and 17" studio display which I use at my desk and currently use for gaming. I have a powerbook g4 500MHz no combo or superdrive (which my fiance' mainly uses) I also have an old dell 1.3gig p4 and 17" trinitron CRT. I play a lot of games, and I've been exploring the possibility of selling my PM and my dell and buying a new powerbook for myself, and building a gaming PC with the extra money I have left over. Gaming with a mac is just too inefficient, and costly. The pc would strictly be used for gaming only. All my other work and surfing could be done wirelessly from the powerbook in the living room, while watching tv with my fiance' or whatever. I did a search on ebay and found that after selling all my equipment I would roughly have about $2000 to work with. I would need a Powerbook with superdrive but not necessarily top of the line. I would prefer to buy used, actually. My questions to you are: 1. Does anyone feel like I'm betraying my beloved Apple by making a move like this? 2. Which Powerbook would fit my situation the best? 3. Has anyone else made a move like this? If so, were you happy with the result? Did you end up using the PC more than you had intended? (I don't want to get caught up in that.) I'm stuck between wanting a cheap, but more powerful gaming machine and wanting to remain faithful to Apple and my love for the Mac OS. Does anyone blame me for feeling this way? I feel guilty. Opinions please!
