It's almost like graphics cards are used for other things besides gaming.

I about spit my starbucks out when I read Nvidia 700 series GPU but those silly iMac's are using Mobile GPU's!

well at least the GPU's are current Gen unlike most macs that use old Gen GPU's and still charging $4000 for a computer.

After the HUGE SteamOS announcement Macs will be getting a lot more business and Gamers.

I already have OSX running smoothly on my PC so I doubt I will ever buy a MAC...YUCK!

Macs look Better than about 98% of the worlds PC's Macs are the best looking compared to other non customized Computers

I'm the opposite, I use an iMac but run Windows 7.

I stick to Windows because it's what I know and it's easy to setup dual operating systems via bootcamp, but the iMac is hands-down the most reliable computer I have ever owned in my life. Sure their systems are expensive but damn, those guys know how to build good, stable and reliable hardware.

It's the same reason I use the iPhone too. After having so many crappy phones for so long, I took the plunge and coughed up the cash for an iPhone 3 years ago, and it's still working perfectly today. I really wish other companies took that much care with their hardware design and reliability.

@2pacalypsenow

looks? that's it? looks are subjective at best and you think EVERYBODY drools over how Apple's products look?

some people might have too much money in hand to buy overpriced Apple products but a smart consumer knows what worth buying! no gamer in their sane mind buy Macs for their gaming needs! Mac's prices make Alienwares look like a bargain! - and a more powerful specs to boot too!

"Sure their systems are expensive but damn, those guys know how to build good, stable and reliable hardware. "

Actually Foxconn makes there devices same they make majority other major things like motherboards mobile phones ect.
But your right they do design great devices simple smart easy to use I use my ipad everyday just got ipad 4 love it play clash of clans poker use it for n4g every single day like i had 3 years ago when bought ipad 1st gen. I dont have to worry about viruses.

Obviously for anything else proper gaming i use my PC but linux is growing so are games library.
Why tye hate i think its more lets do what everyone else is doing jump on hate train pethetic yes there dam costly over priced my eyes. But i love the device i use.

If you look on Steam, there's actually a fairly decent library of games available for Mac OSX. I personally game on Windows, but OSX still has a decent library of games.

i love my iMac, GTX680mx is awesome. don't know why people hate them. i love it.
Pandamobile  +   424d ago
You could probably build two half decent computers for the price of an iMac with a 680M. That's why people don't like them.

"two half decent computers"
And that's why there will always be those who prefer a Mac.

I would like to see you build 2 computers with iMac specs and 2 monitors @2560x1440 res.
Pandamobile  +   424d ago
For the price of an iMac with a GTX 680M, you could build two $800 desktops with a 24" 1080 monitor each.

well i just love how simple it is, i love how hardcore PC gamers hate this. get all mad when its my money thats im spending. besides i got it for my family or very old imac was on its last legs so i decided to upgrade. the graphics card is just a nice to have. so stop crying about it and be a gamer, not a fanboy.
Pandamobile  +   424d ago
No one is getting mad here. You just said that people get mad, and I explained to you why some people might see that as a silly investment.

People buy PC's cause they are cheap and can be customized along with Customized programming and although it's a PAIN sometimes PC owners like learning to fix errors.

People buy MAcs cause they just want a PC that does what it needs to do and they do not want fix nothing.

someone told me this once

"PC owners know how and have change their car's oil,
Mac owners have no clue so they pay to have their oil changed"
