I'm thinkin to buy a mac (my first one)
BUT i dont know anthing about it, the only thing i know is that it is COOl

So, could you guys tell me how mac works with programms and games
like: can i play guild wars or counter-strike source on mac ?
Is it simple to download stuff on the internet cuz i heard something about that mac doesn't support ".exe"
so i think it makes it difficult to download programms on the internet cuz most things are ".exe"

who can give me some basic information
QUOTE Thanks

No, it doesn't make downloading things difficult. ".exe" is a Windows thing. Mac's just do it differently. We have ".app". If you're downloading things you just need to find a Mac version of whatever it is you want (MSN, Limewire, etc etc).

And I answered your game question in your other thread.

Happy Maccing.

I seriously think you should try out a Mac before you buy one though, maybe go to a Mac store or if any of your friends have one get round there and have a go.
