I tend to agree. However, Apple is by no means only using Ati (AMD), they use Nvidia too. For example, the Macbook Pro has an Nvidia 8600M GT, which is the best when it comes to mobile graphics. Thus, this situation can always change.

Apple has a bigger problem when it comes to graphics cards. Apart from the 8600M GT in the Macbook Pro, Apple offers only mediocre graphics cards. Where is the Nvidia 8800 Ultra (or even GT) or the Ati 1950 XTX? Where are the graphics cards that gamers can actually use? Where are the cards for those who want great performance? Apple doesn't even offer them as options. I hope that this will change, especially now that more games are coming to the Mac. It's a serious gap in the product line. It's hard to imagine that the best card for the Mac Pro, a machine that when maxed out can exceed $15,000, is an Ati Radeon x1900 XT ($200), a card that just barely touches the high end. Of course this is still better than what's available for the iMac or Macbook, but it isn't enough for a company priding itself on having the best computers.
