    Thinking of getting a Mac

    Hi. Be for i got the Ipad i was thinking about gettng a new Windows PC. I was planning on spending up to 1200 or cheaper. Then i saw the Ipad and got that instead which cost me 600 for the wifi + 3G 32GB version. so what mac is good as there is loads to choose from. I want a Mac for abit of gaming and keeping I tunes on etc. Ive had alot of problems with pc and ive had 2 pc in 6 years and had problems from BSOD to just crashing so im making a change to mac. So what mac is good for keeping itunes and gaming for around 600. I dont need it for gaming as such but that be a bonus as ive got consoles so thats not a big problem.

    Please keep this topic clean and not a hate war. .

    Depending if you want a desktop or laptop I would suggest an I5 iMac again screen size your choice. 27 is fantastic for anything you desire
    The mid range Macbook pro is also ideal for gaming What I need to know is what type of games and if you prefer a laptop over a desktop. Some idea of budget would help also what are your primary apps you need I will be happy to provide a solution for you. How much is 600 pounds in Aus or us dollars.?
