With all those amazing games (including C&C 3, Carbon, UT3 and Gears of War) announced for the Mac and a delay in the iMac update and the release of the new Core 2 Extreme Mobile, my guess is that Apple roll out a new iMac or desktop Mac for gaming. Apple's move into the gaming market could also suggest a console later on, maybe when the next gen Xbox and PlayStations will be rolling out. It could be that Apple teams up with Nintendo or even Sony and take on their arch rival, Microsoft. Nintendo because of their intuitiveness and the Wii's design, colour etc which looks quite Apple-ish. I just cant understand how Apple expects us to play games on the current iMac. Maybe that is another reason why they havent upgraded the graphic card for quite some time. This move into a gamer iMac could lower Mac prices, lowering the 'expensive' tag that Apple products have. Another possibility is that Apple will release a mid-high end system with screaming graphics, bringing out another product line apart from the iMac and mac pro. Maybe we will see the current iMac trend to continue as normal and Apple releasing a new line up like the G4 cube for gaming. The G4 Cube was a shrink of a high end system and we need something with the power of a MAc Pro. Maybe Apple will do the same and get something like a shrinked Mac Pro like earlier. They could put in desktop processors and components only that it is shrinked. An HP Media Centre m8120n costs around $1150. It has 3 GB RAM, a quad core and 640 GB HDD. The only thing missing is the high end graphic card. If HP can do this then surely Apple can too. The MAc Pro has a quad core so to do the 'shrink' thing they would need a quad core. The whole gaming Mac would cost around $2000-3000 with maybe two or three 'levels' like the current systems. It would be very similar to the Mac Pro but it would follow the G4 cube's strategy and make something small and upgradeable. Another reason for the small G4 Cube design would be portability for LAN parties. Apple's move into the gaming market is not something small or a small little deal. IMO it is a big strategic move. Uptill now I recommended a Mac to EVERYONE except gamers. This move will change that and it should cover up the market gap in Apple's products. What is your opinoin?
