I'm not trying to be funny - i am not a performer nor a comedian. I like to see him rage.
Rage? Sorry to disappoint you but I'm hardly raging.

That was a really stupid survey and article...how many ppl have Macs...and how many use it to game...and how many own PCs with low end specs with Steam to play low end games like WoW and CounterStrike...

i7 at 4.5GHz? Not a chance.
