    now that there are many rumors about steam coming to macs, do you think, that steam will find its way to the appstore? do you think steam will port some of there games to work with the ipad? or will the ipad have the power to run them?

    I haven't heard any rumors of Steam coming to OS X.
    Any sources I can read?

    Anyways, I doubt Valve will make anything for the iPad.

    I just read some articles.

    I guess there is a possibility after all.
    But I still don't think they'll make anything for the iPad

    Keep in mind that iMac is x86 platform same as PC, iPhone/iPod/iPad is a ARM platform need to be compiled differently, so i don't think so. Also i think iPad even with his 1 Ghz is still not enough for Source games

    Doubt it. Integrated memory is a bad sign for any serious games on Steam (which are almost all ha). But you never know.

    I would love to play Source on an iPad ha.
