Excuse the pun!! I'm a 1.1 mac owner and very happy with it for professional purposes (I'm a photographer) with it's 12 Gig of memory, SSD boot drive, 8 cores, 5770 graphics and RAID. BUT - I have this burn for faster graphics. I'm not a big gamer but love to play the odd game now and then. I'm 42 - earning a bit of cash - and up until the recent reviews of the Sandy Bridge chip - was very tempted to upgrade to a Hex core 3.33 Mac Pro with a 5780 card basically, if I'm honest, just for the graphics improvement. But, for £1100 (including VAT), I can get a PC that will blow the socks off of Apple's fasted games machine (that costs over £3000). Specifically, a computer with a i5 2500K clocked to 4.2 Ghz, Nvidia 580 GTX graphics card. Apple have an awesome operating system (especially with the un-paralleled power and versatility of Apple Script) and great design. BUT, I think they may soon be very off of the pace with their hardware cost v performance ratio unless they upgrade their Mac Pros soon (which I don't think they will)!! Just me thinking out loud!!
