I've been building and using Windows computers for over a decade but lately find myself contemplating the move to a Mac in order to have a smoother computing experience. Most of what I use my PC for over the last few years are tasks like photo editing, web surfing, movie viewing, etc. I have been increasingly irritated with the amount of time I have to spend every year wrenching on my Windows machines. To make matters worse I also support all of the Windows machines at my wife's office, damn!!!! For years I refused to make this move because I was an avid PC Gamer. For the last couple of years I have found myself playing games less and less frequently, the last PC game I played was Fallout 3 (which, incidentally is a great game that unfortunately wasn't produced for the Mac). What are my prospects if I want to make the move to Apple but might occasionally want to play Windows games via boot camp to XP? Does this leave me firmly in the realm of the mac pro with a video card upgrade? Can the newer iMacs handle some medium level PC gaming? Should I just hold off till the release of Snow Leopard? Is that when we are likely to see the next hardware performance bump? A friend of mine indicated that the Apple rumor mill is starting to buzz about the possible release of a new Mac tower that will be between the iMac and Mac Pro. Other concerns right now are the lack of Blu-Ray support in the Mac OS (I'm a huge fan of Blu-Ray movies and would want to watch my Blu-Ray discs on any computer I have) and the inability of doing Time Machine backups from a Mac onto my Windows Home Server (although maybe that one will eventually be possible via a hack). Any and all advice would be helpful... thanks!
