    Talking 20" iMac running HL2
    Hey all, this is my first post on this site. I have a question regarding the new Imacs. Has anybody used XP on the new intels and had success running Half Life 2? I'm wondering how the 256mb graphics upgrade works with it too. I've been a mac user for 2 years and an audio designer for 5. So Macs are my way of life (love it). I miss HL2 dearly and want to get it running soon. I'd love to get the imac as space saving desktop and still be able to run xp just for HL2 and steam pretty much. Any thoughts or comments will help me greatly! Thanks!

    Is that at native resolution, ie. 1920x1200?

    That's when (supposedly) Lepoard comes out. Also I start work in June after school ends. Plus, it gives me tons of time to plan out exactly what I'm gonna save for. Then I get my sweet steam back!
