    The short answer is NO!

    The games you have now for the pc will not work on the Mac, you would need Mac versions. The Mac is not particulary a gaming machine, though it does run a lot of games quite well, but if you are a hard core gamer stay with the pc.

    To find out what a Mac looks like go down to your local Mac dealer or to CompUSA and look at them. You can't even begin to learn about Mac from pictures, you need to get hands on to get the feel of OS X.

    Cool
    You will not be able to install OS X on a PC (intel chip set).

    Hey not to hijack but how did you make a background of all album images from your itunes playlist? That looks cluttered but cool at the same time?
