And it only makes them money if people find value in it and wish to pay. So If they, as a business, want to make money by providing people with something that they want at a price they are willing to pay, what's wrong with that? It's exactly what they are supposed to do!

Jan 31st 2012 1:37AM Love the PvP, not so great PvE. But that's what they were shooting for. If I could get my WoW and SWTOR guild to switch i'd much rather play Warhammer.

There is no reality distortion field. I have many computers in this house and aside from the imac, i've built them all. I have no shortage of PC's I can game on. I also wanted a mac. The display is the best I own and it handles SWTOR maxed out, so why not use it?

I am gaming at max resolution with that card. I play all games at the native resolution of the monitor.

Didn't cost me that much. I added the ram myself. But yeah, it's a lot. But the monitor alone is worth a grand. The rest of the computer specs don't make it that much more over building your own. And a 27" at 2560x1440 looks amazing.
Jan 2nd 2012 4:22PM @Tom in VA Bootcamp works fine for me. Not glitchy at all. And I can get up to date drivers direct from AMD. No issues.
In fact on this imac I get better performance in WoW in windows than I do in OSX.

Yes, there are macs older than 18 months that can run SWTOR just fine.
Jan 2nd 2012 4:11PM @y0d4991337 I'm playing SWTOR on my mac now. Haven a Intel Sandy Bridge 2600, 16gb ram, Radeon 6970m 2gb. Plays fine. Not sure how my imac isn't for gaming.
