    i have a SR MBP i have been using as my laptop and desktop (with no external monitor, just a keyboard and mouse)

    well i now want to buy a desktop so i can have a bigger screen wihtout having to plug in the MBP all the time ..

    i want to put bootcamp and winxp so i can run HL2, cs, and tf2

    these games all run fine on my MBP with the 8600 GT

    .. so i was wondering can the 24" imac handle those games (im not really familiar with ATI cards)

    ... if it wont handle it im thinking about a default configed Mac Pro with a 30" Apple Cinnama Display

    In reality the iMacs are basically the same architecture as the laptops.

    The only question is will the laptop/mobile 2600 handle the games you want, and there are PC sites that answer that.
