    Hey folks, a friend of mine uses windows 8 on his macbook to play games or to use windows programms! Is this really needed? Is mac worse for playing games? since you can play steam games on a mac, and he uses windows for it...
    And i also read that there are apps for mac, which allow to install windows programms...

    So is it really necessary to install windows on a mac to run several apps or play games?
    Thanks in advance :)

    Booting to Windows will give you access to a much wider selection of games, and will likely provide better gaming performance (as Windows as done a good job of maximizing performance for gaming).

    Gaming on OSX works, but you will have to select from the (relatively) small population of games available.

    but all in all games will run better on windows than on mac?

    Don't know the answer.

    General consensus is however, the Air is NOT a game machine. If that seems important to you.
