[quote]Originally posted by The Toolboi: it advertises to people that the Mac can rise to the demands of serious gamers if the need arises. Not to sound like a PC biggot or anything (Oh I miss the macOS) but even with a GF3 a serious gamer isnt going to consider a mac. To tell you the truth I think that the GF3 is kind of a waste on the mac.
I question wether Apple is really interested in going after the hardcore gamer. Jobs is...
All things good and pure flow from greater bandwidth...revised MB, DDR Ram, faster HDs. If I understand correctly, none are really of value until the processor is fast enough to feed them, no? Caler
Digital cameras are pretty ubiquitous out in the wider world, can Apple make money marketing a digi cam just to their installed base? I'd say it would have to be priced competitively to succeed, but... <looks at iPod sales, shrugs> Caler

Geez, I'm getting a little tired of people telling me that my mac is more than adequate for my needs. Let me be the judge of that, please. I toss around fairly large graphics files for a living... I think I can figure out how to use the rumored speed increases to come with the G5 just fine, thanks.
