    The news release says it will be released for Windows in July - 4 months. The Mac version isn't going to come sooner than that, so I guess you'll have to hold your breath for a while yet :)

    Yeah, your "iMac" does. You've got a real 3D card. Sadly, I sacrificed that capability for a cute little plastic shell on my MacBook (you know, instead of the Pro).

    I keep hoping that my old iMac will kick off so my wife will let me buy a nice new 24" replacement, but the damned thing's too reliable even after all these years.

    Drat!

    You don't know how much!

    I've bought Vanilla for PC, Vanilla for MAC, Warlords for PC, Warlords for MAC, and then... Warlord for PC again for when I wanna 2-play and the other person doesn't have a copy yet (ie my girlfriend :p).

    :D

    Beyond the sword for PC is coming next (I won't resist waiting for the MAC version, unless they are VERY VERY close... like a few hours! :p), and then a couple of copies of the MAC version, for playing with my gf at the new expansion :)

    I got my hopes up recently. The CD drive was acting funny, wouldn't respond to eject commands, wasn't reading this one disc.

    But then, sadly, it turned out that a bad CD had made iTunes go loopy and it just wouldn't release the drive. The darned thing's just fine now.

    I love this little Macbook (even though it's got the plastic shell that gets dirty CONSTANTLY) but I sure would've paid extra to put a decent 3D chipset in it.

    If it makes you feel any better, I can't believe how dirty the aluminum case of the Macbook Pro gets. Maybe my hands are just dirty, but if I don't clean it every day or two then the wrist rests look like they've been oiled down and dried out.

    What the heck do you guys do with your compy's that makes them get dirty? :scared:

    I just can't wait to supplement our MacBook with an iMac. Hopefully before the summer :)

    My Powermac G5 sits in my room and sucks up dust with its mighty fan assemblies ;)

    Most computers run better if you clean them occasionally.

    heading slightly off topic...

    My gf and I both got one those silicone keyboard covers (me for my 15" powerbook, her for her macbook). Her computer was brand new, and I think it has really helped keep the computer clean. The cover fits really well over the macbook's keys and you don't even notice it.

    wasn't quite has happy with the fit over the bevelled edges of the powerbook keyboard. Plus it has basically trapped in the 2yrs of crumbs and dust, which are now working their way up and sticking to the underside of the keyboard cover.

    It's summer. Go out and play with your friends, get some fresh air and move your body.

    You'll thank me for that in 10-20 years.

    I think we're all forgetting how quickly Aspyr delivered Civ4 and Warlords. I took them months not years. Which is (as far as I know) a very fast job at porting a game for the mac.
