I like the iMac, but by design I think they're more marketed & designed towards "soft" users... surfing, email etc...
Well that's what most "home" 3D gamers are, not having the iMac play a decent 3D video game at a acceptable speed along with PC's is just stupid.
On a PC one can get into 3D competitive gaming for about $1000. They don't need a dual processor workstation that costs $3000 like it is on a Mac.
Heck I can play 2 3D games at once, who the heck needs that much power?
See this decision by Apple leaves a market soley owned by PC's, all those kids that could be growing up using a Mac instead of a PC, just because the iMac can't upgrade the video card 6 months down the road with a new 3D game.
We all know the hardware has to be upgraded in three years regardless, but at least allow folks the chance to 3D game for those 3 years and not 6 months.
Apple could limit the size of the cards and only to a AGP slot so no monster things or PCI cards get in and professionals use the iMac instead a PowerMac.
But they should allow folks the option. 3D gaming and iMac's go together.
PowerMac's are more of a workstation box.
With this switch to MacTels, I hope Apple realizes the benefit of matching hardware with PC's as closely as possible if they expect to take any significant market share.
Heck a cheap tower with Mac OS X would scare the pants off of Micheal Dell.
