Is that so?

The early 2006 iMac 20 inch has an X1600, a 2.0 Ghz Core Duo, and up to 2.0 GB of Ram

The Late 2006 iMac 20 inch has an X1600, a 2.2 Ghz Core 2 Duo and up to 3.0 GB Ram.

Of course, it's still obsolete, but technically... it could run TF2.

Team Fortress is from like 2006 lol. Hit the Apple Logo, and go to "About This Mac". What does it say?

The cheapest upgrade might just be bootcamp/ some version of windows. Though the great majority of potential TF2 rivals wlll have better machines and a competitive advantage.

No you are not being funny you are being ridiculous, 9 years for any computer is brilliant service and if you now need a new one for your needs then welcome to the real world.

As others on the thread have shown your mac will run that game, it makes your ridiculous tirade even more outrageous.

How old are you? Your posts read like you're 13 or younger.

If that's the case, I'm just going to go ahead and let you know that in life, companies don't give you free stuff. When you want things you have to buy them. Tough stuff, I know.

Cars don't typically last 9 years and you're complaining about a 9 year old computer not capable of running newer software?

You have a choice, don't play the game, or buy a new computer.

What kind of cars you buying if you can't get more than 9 years of service out of them? KIA?

If you wanna game, build a PC desktop. Then you can upgrade piece by piece if necessary. Also mouse drivers for mac leave a lot to be desired(as of the last time I tried) and as much as love all my mac products... I still think for gaming all the hardware/software is designed with PC in mind

because the imac lacks a user accessible pci slot, you cannot simply plug in a sixty dollar video card (which tennd to be priced well in excess of their processing power. However, the windows version of the game has considerably lower minimum tequirements. In desperation, one could install bootcamp...

But I suspect that a new windows PC is far more cost effective, possibly even at logical increment's destitute tier
