I really really wish Mac would stop using these substandard video cards. A Geforce 8800 will run over that card.

It doesn't make a difference, there are hardly any game titles on the Mac format worth buying except for COD4 and WoW....Unless you have bootcamp to run windows on your Mac, there is no reason to buy a Mac for gaming

But I prefer having the best of both worlds and for that you need a great video card. You do realize that COD4 runs on a Mac, right? So does Wrath of the Lich King.

I was really looking at picking up the new 17 in Macbook but that video card blows. My Gateway has a 8800 512 in it and will easily pass those by.

Anything beats Windows. Linux FTW.

"You do realize that COD4 runs on a Mac"

Exactly, I said COD4 and WOW run on a Mac (and the only good titles on the Mac format)

For the same price you can buy a HDTV, PS3, 360, iphone, itouch, movies, games and still have money left over.
