I know the whole "Mac gaming" debate is as old as Mac is itself, but it seems to have come up a lot recently between my mac-owning friends and myself. I've been getting more and more into gaming recently (for about 4 or 5 months) after getting a HP Pavilion Slimline s3020n as a gift about 6 months ago. So far (after dumping Vista and going back to XP SP2), gaming has been pretty good for my standards, and that's with the base specs: AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ / 2 GHz, and I think nVIDIA GeForce 6150 with 2 GB of Ram. I got another copy of XP for bootcamp on the Macbook, installed a few games, and to my dismay the gaming experience wasn't very much the same at all. Besides the (lack thereof a) dedicated graphics card, the specs are pretty much the same, and I even upgraded my macbook to 4 GB of memory for a short period. All that said, what would it take for a Mac to be the "dream" gaming device, or even just a decent one, as far as specs go? Like I said before, I just got into the whole realm of gaming on PC's and Mac's alike, so I couldn't really point out any specs for my liking, I just wanna be able to have 1) more compatibility from developers & 2) A choice from Apple to remove & replace, say, a graphics card if I wanted to. And I apologize if this thread has been brought up before. I searched and didn't find anything specific to this subject. Also, sorry if my post seems a bit uneducated. I really would like to be informed on why the Mac already isn't a perfect gaming system and what could be done to make that possible.
