So I have a new-ish Mac, I got it last summer, I have Lion as well, and I was wondering if the new macs have Cider on them, and if I can play games?

Cider isn't a prerequisite for playing games. It is a version of WINE that is marketed to game companies to "port" Windows games over to the Mac.

There are many ways to run Windows games on a Mac. If you're interested in using a similar technology to Cider, check out CrossOver Games, which is marketed to and geared toward ordinary users.

But in general, to get the best experience with Windows games, you're going to want to install Windows via Boot Camp, or just buy Mac-specific games from the Mac App Store or Steam.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
