Lately, I've started to question what my future holds for Mac hardware. Especially as it pertains to Windows and gaming. I'm going to just post some of my thoughts and would love comments. I currently use a late 2012 iMac. It has the GTX 680 with 2GB so it held up for games for a bit. I'm not the type to always need to run games on the highest settings, but it is starting to struggle. I spent $3,200 on it and it is a great machine. The wife is using my previous iMac, a mid-2010 model that is starting to show its age in day-to-day use. I was thinking I might get a new iMac and give her the hand-me-down again but who knows when Apple will release a new iMac. And let's face it - it will probably be a lot thinner and terrible for gaming. (enough with the thinner, thinner, thinner, Apple!) So then I started toying with the idea of building a Windows machine that would be good for games. It can be done for half the price of an iMac, but I really enjoy using Mac OS. That brought up ideas of building a hackintosh but I really don't want to deal with loss of functionality and having to "fiddle" with it to get things to work. I could do it, I've built many PCs, but I just don't have the time like I used to. So then I started thinking about getting a gaming console and just keeping the Macs we have. I haven't bought a console since the original Wii came out and it just died, so I'm in the market anyway. I'll probably get the Nintendo Switch (love Zelda and Mario games). I have twin boys and I can see many fights over using it as a portable, but that is another story. So maybe the Nintendo Switch for kids/family gaming, and a different console for my "manly gaming" needs. Another issue here is whether to go with the new Xbox Scorpio coming out next year or a PS4 Pro. I lean towards the Xbox due to their lineup of exclusive games. I've been out of console gaming for a long time though and have no idea what each console can do for my living room as far as non-gaming entertainment, which might play a factor in my decision. Getting a console doesn't address the aging 2010 iMac. Considered a Mac Mini but will it ever be updated? Meh. Maybe I'll just get the wife a reasonably priced Windows machine. Well there you have it - anyone else in a similar boat?
