I'd like to see your rig come and stand up to mine gaming power wise and my rig isn't even top of the line! Stupid comparisons shown in a certain way to serve someone's bias are stupid.

Someone will always have the biggest schlong, that's why we have statistics to compare to.

Hear that? The sound of something flying right over your head...

Way to miss the point.

Cripples vs. bears

There are probably a lot more bears in the world than there are cripples, who would win in a fight?

Higher quality may be more important than higher quantity, but, higher quantities of higher quality is even more meaningful. To draw it out: Mac's may be all fancy and pretty and retail Macs may be much better quality than retail PCs, but there's a much greater number of higher quality PCs in the world than there are Macs ;-).

Exactly what I was getting at before. These are just bad statistics.

All we see are percentages, but if we saw numbers then it would be a completely different game all together.

Ugh. Wouldn't surprise me if Apple starts pushing Mac more and more into the gaming market now. I expect it. Typical Apple behavior: "Introducing the new iGamer." Rofl.
