Consider that the vast majority of Macs sold have far too slow GPUs for actual PC games, so safe your money if you have an Mac Mini, Mac Book, or the small iMac, since these mashines aren't powerfull enough anyway because the GMA950 can't compete with a seven year old GPU.

Only buy if you have an Power Mac with a decent graphics card... or because you don't care for games and are after 2d / low end 3d apps / 3d apps from before 2000.

I think Mac owners are just aware as PC owners what they're gaming specs are. I have a MacBookPro 2.16GHz, 128MB ATI X1600, 1GB RAM and I can run Tomb Raider Anniversary at 1440x900 at highest settings. Macs are not /that/ incapable. Even a GMA950 can play WoW.
