Apple has never offered a Mac option with a real gaming configuration that I can remember, at any price point. They may keep using the non-consumer Intel chips high end and wait for the new lower end i7 revs before they shift on low and middle. The current i7 chips are absolute monster performers. Intel hit that one out of the park and into one in another city.On second thought, they are (effectively) eight core chips and they're perfectly suited to A/V work, so Apple may shift sooner than later. It'd also give them a new chance to gouge on RAM prices, re:"buy with stock RAM and buy it after market."If you buy extra RAM from Apple you might as well dump a sack of cash in the oven while sticking a fork in an electrical socket. The markup is dizzying.
