I'm often the only "Mac" at my LAN parties or as some in attendance like to say "the only computer in the room that doesn't count." I take a lot of jokes and crap for using a MBP at a LAN surrounded by custom build desktop Windows machines. The irony... While half of them are trying to figure out networking, settings, glitches, and system errors I'm busy playing games with the 1 or 2 computers there that seem to be working. I've even pointed out I run Windows XP on boot camp for a lot of the games and still doing better than them.
