Hey, my name is Daniel. I'm Brazilian and since Im going to the USA in a week, Im thinking about buying a MacBook Pro. (Buying there would cost 60% less... lol) I've been quite a computer geek since I was a kid, going from an addicted runescape player, to games coder, to website designer etc. I've done most of whats there to be done... But Ive been having some doubts about buying myself a Mac, and since most of the info I found by researching on Google was outdated, I thought you guys could help me clear up some things. I made a list of what I do on the computer, and I want to know what's compatible and what's not. 1 Counter-Strike 1.6: Since Im on my vacations I decided Id put this on the first place. Lol I did some research and I found out that Steam games arent available for Macs and it was a huge turndown, since all the games I play are from Steam I researched some more and I found out about BootCamp and CrossOver Mac. 95% of the reviews I saw about CrossOver said I should use BootCamp, since with CrossOver itd be so laggy and glittchy I wouldnt be able to play my CS 1.6. Its a pretty old game with ****** graphics lol, so I was unable to understand how the heck it would be laggy But then I noticed the post was from march 2009, and then I found out that later this year, CrossOver 8 was released and that Itd run most Steam games (including big ones like TF2, L4D2 etc) with no problems Conclusion: I want to know. Is it true? Can CrossOver run Steam games with no lag and glitches? Or should I use BootCamp? Is BootCamp going to run it flawlessly? Or should I even keep my windows desktop just for games lol (that would suck thought ) 2 Adobe Photoshop / Dreamweaver: Ive always heard Macs were for designers, coders and etc, so I wanted to know: Is it true? Will I run my adobe programs better there? 3 Customizing: I love finding little programs to customize my desktop and make my PC cool and comfortable to use, like I do on my jailbroken Iphone :S (I hope I can say that here xD). Conclusion: Will I be able to customize my Macs desktop as much as its possible to do on Windows? 4 Hardware: Will I be able to use my router and modem, or do I have to use special Mac ones? What about my Microsoft mouse? My keyboard and my future 5h steelseries V2 headphones? 5 Torrents: I download A LOT of movies and series by torrents (Dont judge I have to pay 60% more than you on most of the products here -.- ****ing taxes + many series dont EVEN GET HERE I love The Simpsons but we only have up to the 12th season although on the PC were up-to-date ). Apple wont stop me, right? Conclusion: Will I be able to download my movies and series with no problems?... Well, Im not sure but I think thats it. =) Thanks in advance guys!
