    Having a Mac client actually opens up a bigger market. The Mac laptop shares have been eating at the PC laptop sales for a while now and no sign of stopping.

    Cross-platform is a great strategy. Only issue is that in the short term it will eat money but in the long run, it's a great thing to have.

    I just like to see the Mac people using Bootcamp to play any games (this way I get to make fun of them). I guess a couple games can't hurt though. :p

    i'm not happy, and at the same time not sad about this. it is probably a good thing, but i really do not want to see mac take over the market.

    the 13 inch has a 9400m, and the 15+ inch has a 9600m GT, so yes...

    half life 2 even runs on my GMA 950..

    I can run games like The Sims 3 very well @ medium. That means I should be able to run Left 4 Dead on medium or low at 1280x800 on my Mac when there's a native version.

    Macs are just PCs with a different keyboard and operating system. There's really nothing else really different.

    I bought it solely because it doesn't come with Windows as I needed an UNIX operating system and Linux would eat too much of my time to upkeep.
