I hope this is the right place to put this question.
I’m a simple guy who just wants to run his computer smoothly. My Dell computer of two years died. It was actually a gift from my parents. The sales rep was requested by my mother, (who’s more in the dark about computers than I am), to specifically keep gaming in mind. She got a good deal on a good gaming computer, but after mentioning her occupation, was swayed to go for another computer. The computer she ended up getting me wasn’t at all like the first one was, but my mother didn’t know this. It was actually not fit for gaming at all.
It wasn’t so bad, and I think I’ve decided that PC gaming never really interested me all THAT much, (I do like simple downloadable’s like World of Goo). However I’m still thinking about asking about the specifics and prices of PC laptops that are capable of gaming in the Gaming forum. I just hate dealing with my PC. I know Windows 7’s out, and I’m still leaning towards PCs. I want to give Mac a ‘fair shake’. I called a sales rep, that claims not to work on commission, and she gave me a broad overview. It was a lot easier to talk to her than the Dell and Gateway reps. I’m thinking a ‘capable’ laptop BTW.
She said there’s a fair amount of independent games offered, is this true and is it of the same quality as something on the PC? What else can the Mac offer that a PC doesn’t application wise?
