    Hello everyone. Well, I have decided after a few months contemplating to buy a new computer. I am very used to using notebooks at the moment but my family are currently re-cabling the house so I will a Ethernet cable directly in my room.

    My question is, what MAC should I get?

    I am currently 14 years old who doesn't use computers for much school work as I use them a lot for gaming.

    I don't mind a laptop or a desktop. Explain why please and the specifications I should get. Don't ask what my budget is, I'll figure that out. Parent's offset account ftw.

    people say that macs are not really for gaming but their pretty cool anywys. If you are looking at getting it for games i'd suggest a desktop as they are more powerful. I have an iMac and its great - powerful enough!

    You're 14 and want to game. You shouldn't be getting a Mac. Not responsible enough, In my Honest Opinion.

    Teslanaut, you don't know me personally. I've been through a gaming period, now I'm into a "browse forums, and RPG games, not intense game stage." And actually, I am fairly responsible for my age. I'm more of a geek at school, not a cool person. I care about money, I don't go out and splurge money on things I won't use the day.

    In my honest opinion, I think you're wrong.

    "Browse Forums" & "RPG Gaming"

    I see nothing about graphic design, creating websites, editing audio/video, office work. Nothing involving work or creating something. So my opinion stands. You should not be getting a Mac.

    You're forgetting about the viruses. Also, OSX is around 20x easier to use, and with SL, you'll be getting more for your money.

    Then he should use Linux on a regular PC. He doesn't need a Mac at all. "Forum browsing + RPG Games"? Come on. There is a high percentage chance that the "RPG Game" that he is mentioning, is Runescape.

    @teslanaut why don't you just leave him alone?

    I suggest an imac if you don't care about portability. they are cheaper for what you get.

    I just got a 24 in imac! I highly recommend it!

    Honestly. Coming from me, a Mac/Apple fanboy, he doesn't need a Mac yet. He's 14, interested in browsing forums & playing RPG games. Why does he need a Mac for? It's a bit early for him to get a Mac. Maybe in another 2 years, THEN he should get a Mac. But now? It'd just be a drain on his parent's expenses.
