I'm sure XCOM is fun, but I'm much more excited about the concept of Blizzard's new Duel-of-the-Plainswalkers-like online CCG game, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. A well known (and for a long time, the premier) Mac Game developer is bringing its expertise to the Mac on first release, and the first mobile platform will be  the iPad. That's huge.
it's too bad that Windows has one of the nicest pieces of kit on the market- that Nokia Lumia 920 is probably the only phone I'd consider outside of an iPhone, even with Windows Phone. it's got a gorgeous hand feel. The thing it most reminds me of is the original iPod nano, one of my favorite devices ever.   That said, Windows 8 is a serious cramp. I use it on two computers and it's fine if you're willing to work in its hiccups. For my customers, whom I sell to...
He's right in some ways.   There hasn't been a mobile game yet to have that "moment" - seeing Mario jumping on the flag pole for the first time and winning level 1-1, "It's Dangerous to Go Alone, Take This" and being given a sword to start the quest that became the Legend of Zelda, Aerith getting impaled on Sephiroth's Sword, any of a ton of moments from newer console games. No mobile game so far has truly captured gamers zeitgeist. The closest has been Angry Birds,...
  This isn't IBM. It's Intel. They've worked close with apple for years, they are a very reliable producer and they'd love to take on Samsung as much as Apple would. Seems like a good idea.
To be fair, jragosta, so far it hasn't - 3DS is selling like hotcakes. They're in no trouble on that front.
  To be fair, I'm in the same boat as ElectroTech. I have used Macs since the bad old Mid-90's, rid out OS 7.5, 7,6, 8, 9 and the early versions of OS X until things got really good. And I evangelized the Mac the whole time. And despite that, I decided to downsize too, get a gaming PC and a Mac Mini with it. It doesn't please me, but the 21" iMac is now not much more then a good quality laptop in a less movable box. it's gorgeous and if it fits your needs, that's...
He made me stop shopping at my local JCP. They use to have my town's best selection of odd sized men's clothing - big and tall, just tall, ect. That all went away when the store was redone. Now I'm lucky to find a XT t-shirt. So they lost my business. They tell me to catalog order, but if I do that, why not shop online? I liked I could go actually see the items. Now if I need a shirt I gotta trek 30 miles to the nearest b-n-t store and get a much more limited selection.
Well, I like the Mac Pro, but it starts at 2000 dollars. My gaming PC with a nVidia GTX 660, 24" monitor (a tiny bezel one so it would fit in my space- tight but gorgeous with HDMI), an HDMI KVM and a Mac Mini for my mac things the total is 1600. And remember I gotta get a monitor for that Mac Pro, so I wasn't escaping for under 2200. That's a lot of money difference. Also ,the graphics card choices for the Mac are, well, limited. If I was committed to the Mac, had...
Sadly Apple lost me as an iMac customer. i don't have the room for a 27" computer monitor. I don't want it, and I don't need it. And by choosing to remove the discrete graphics card and the RAM upgrades from the 21" iMac, it has lead me to just choose not to invest in another. I built a gaming PC with Win 8 and will be getting the lower-profit Mac Mini to match it. Overall, I'll be decreasing my Apple investment. I feel bad-  I like the iMac. I never had a single hiccup...
Stop saying 199 for the GN7.    That's the 8 gig version. It's 250 for the 16 gig that is equal to the iPad.   For the 80 dollars, you get a 35% bigger screen, iOS 6, less Google, a stronger, Al and Glass enclosure compared to the plasticized rubbery feel of the GN7, and the Apple support compared to Asus'.    Apple is not far off in terms of raw processing, and it's way ahead on intangibles.
