What is the best Mac for gaming?
« on: October 22, 2011, 09:34:15 pm »
I know when people think of gaming they think "Windows PC" but there are more and more games coming out for mac then ever before.

I use Steam where I purchase all my PC games and they have a lot of mac titles so I was wondering what the best mac for gaming is.

None of them. In my own experience gaming experience via Steam in a Mac is worse than a PC, usually. But if I had to choose, Mac OS X Lion would be best.
