    I want to get a mac but the only thing that is holding me back is the compatibility of games with it. It seems like most of the good games are made for pc only, bf2, cs:s, etc...is there anyway to play those on a mac? any good mac games you guys know of? thanks

    honestly, if you want to play games, stick to your PC.

    I have my mac mini for everything under the sun, and my custom pc for games.

    Good Advice!

    There are a couple of good games for the Mac, and I'm sure that will change once Apple switches to Intel Processors but your best bet is probably with a PC or Xbox/Playstation Console.

    I play C&C:Generals on my PB, but that's about the only game.

    That game is like heroin. It should be made illegal. I actually pass up sex with the GF if I'm playing. :o

    I was play C&C: Red Alert on Windows 98 5 years ago. Generals has been out for the Mac and PC for a while, but it's still a great game.

    I'm pissed that Civ4 isn't being released for OSX (at least initially). :hs:

    I have a 12" powerbook... I need a bigger screen though lol (and a mouse too). So I'm thinking about getting a big flat screen and one of those bluetooth mouses, anyone got recommendations?

    I have the Radtech BT500 for a bluetooth mouse and it works great.
    I have an 18" Dell Monitor, but I would buy a used Apple display of eBay if I was you
