FRAGaLOT

This isn't supprising since Apple is notorious about orphaning thier old users, and Apple is one of those few companies where any new hardware they produce is a "must have."  There are little to no Mac users who are left that are running on a PowerPC anymore. Considering now Macs have the exact same parts as a standard PC, can run Windows and linux, it's not supprising porting over games from Steam to OSX is a no brainer, since they have a much larger market share ever since Apple went onto the intel bandwagon.

Where as PC users, we don't get orphaned by Microsoft every 2 years.  Hell they just now completely dropped windows 2000 support this month, and how old is that OS? So a lot of PC users don't NEED to upgrade, considering most of the games on stream are about 10 yearsold, there's no need to get a decked out gaming machine.

I'm acctually planning on buying a macbook pro hopefully by the end of the year, but ill keep my PC for desktop needs.

I'll always take a PC over a Mac to due the simple fact that you can upgrade any part that is needed, it is also cheaper to repair and you have less down time. Gaming on a Mac with default settings on games you will not see much of a difference, some Macs are packing pretty decent video cards in them. But, if you ever want to upgrade or change that card, you are most likey to have to get a new computer all together. The new Mac Pro has availible upgrade slots, but it also starts at $2499. You can almost build two of what I have listed above for that price, and get a lot more out of it.

Maybe their specs have something to do with the fact that the MacBook, MacBook Pro, iMac, Macbook Air, and Mac Pro all cost ABOVE $1,000.

If all PC's cost above $1,000, our specs would blow them out of the water.

The cheapest Mac Pro is about $3,000, and my ~$1700 PC (in signature) has better specs. That makes me giggle inside. :)

The survey also misses a critical point, as someone else raised, that there are no inexpensive Macs. I run Steam on my primary system, a Q6600 with an 8800 GTS, both overclocked, but I also play with Steam on my kids' computer with an AMD X2 5000+ and Radeon 4350. Heck, I play hours of Altitude via Steam on my first-gen Aspire One with a nine inch screen!

So my stats alone include a last-gen quad core, another dual core, and an Atom! Yet my hardware is probably better than much of the Apple users playing.

 Lastly, the Apple users who installed Steam as soon as it became available probably were from the more tech savvy vanguard. My sister still loves her creaky G4 and thinks Steam is something to warm a house in winter.

And this is what I was afraid of. As soon as them Mac guys come into our more or less beloved scene, they start whipping out something for their egos. Goes to show they really know nothing about hardware in general, they just see some numbers and go "OMFG MINE'S BETTER THAN YOURS!". Kind of like the idiot racer who thinks more horsepower and torque means instant win at the racetrack.

I get by just fine on a Core 2 Duo E8400, 6GB of RAM, and a GeForce 8800GT. Which could probably run circles around whatever's in their laptops still. Also, if you compare the game play between PC and Mac OS X, Mac OS X runs a lot worse.

Even though the mac might have a faster processor and more RAM they still play about half the speed compared to PC's. And the majority of the graphics and calculations done for video games are done with the graphics card, the CPU is hardly used.

2 7200rpm sataII drives in raid0

4GB's 800mhz ddr2 ram

Pentium 4 3.8Ghz

Nvidia 7950GTX overclocked, card alone cost me $500 alone just a few months ago because the 6800 fried and the 7950GTX is impossible to find

2 DVD-RW drives

12 cell Li-Ion battery, holds enough charge for 2 seconds of use

Runs pretty much anything decently at extreme graphics but I think I'm ready to upgrade from DX9 and jump to DX11

Come on, folks...it's 2010. 

While you're all having a big e-peen circle jerk contest, you're missing out.

What's with all these monster effin machines with mechanical storage (especially for the operating system)?

Do yourselves a favor and go solid state.  It's the best improvement you can make, and once you get instant response times you'll wish you would have tossed the turntable a long time ago.

 Sure, just point me towards the 1TB SSD's that I don't have to mortgage my house to buy.

I think I'll wait for the prices to come down a lot before I move my desktop over to an SSD...

Thats a sweet setup you got there. Do you use any water cooling or is it all on air? Also, what kind of case do you have? I imagine it would have to be equally awesome to fit all that goodness in one case comfortably.

All sitting not-so-pretty in an old Antec SX830 case (I don't replace my case very often)

 

Here's a thought... could it be just because Steam for the Mac is new?   I'd imagine the people running older Macs aren't gamers, and are less inclined to go download Steam even though it's available, while on the PC side, we already have a decade's worth of Steam games out there.

Too bad the mac runs all the games worse than a pc a $1200 mac = the performance of a $600 pc for steam games. That being said most of the bad specs for pcs on here are probably because there are people like me that will throw steam on anything to see if it will run games on low settings.

Too bad the Steam survey doesn't take price into consideration.

These average specs for Mac users are practically the only choices you have with the iMac and MacBook Pro lines: dual-core and 4GB RAM especially. The cheapest dual-core (*yawn*) iMac is a whopping $1200 while the cheapest 15" (double *yawn*) MacBook "Pro" laptop is $1500. Even the small screen 2GB models are $900 to start... and only recently have those prices been lowered.
