Figured this fell out of the scope of the existing PC thread. I do a lot of sound recording and image editing, so I took the plunge and got a HUGE Imac desktop, a real high-end version. Now for recording, I couldn't have made a better choice. My audio bus is literally plug and play, while my mixing software is still running, and that's great. Sound quality is awesome, I can change from internal to headphone jack to USB headphones to the jack on the USB bus, all while still working, and I haven't had any issues with drivers at all. Everything seems to be playing very nice with each other.
So far, I'm pretty satisfied with it. There is just one little caveat: I think this Imac might be more powerful than the ASUS laptop I use for gaming, and so I've got an itch to install windows 7 with Boot Camp and just see how it does. A couple things keeping me from doing that, though:
1: This thing feels HOT to the touch. Not just a little warm, but hot enough so you don't want to keep your hand on it. Mostly near the top and back, and the fans work, but they haven't kicked in as aggressively as they did during a hardware test. I have a little worry about overheating.
2: I know Boot Camp and dual booting comes with a performance hit. I tried EVE online on max settings at 1440p and was getting about 40-90FPS, depending where I looked. 1440p would reduce Arma1 to a slide show on my laptop, much less Arma2. So I think I might have some success there.
Anybody have any experience with gaming on the Imac? I don't want to jump in and dedicate 300gb of HD space for Arma, TOH, and Arma3 without being sure it'll be worth it in the end.
