i7's don't seem to be a long-term investment at all.


And Craps Macs are?

Why did you write 'Craps' then cross it out?

The problem with Macs is that they're usually on the verge of being outdated at the time of sale. Then comes the problem with non-interchangeable parts and you're stuck with what you got. 'Fortunately', Macs are not really used for gaming and this is where ageing technology usually shows its deficiencies.

That's true for Mac laptops and the Mini, which are not usually used for gaming (I, for example, only intend to play pre-2009 games + Diablo 3 and Starcraft 3, which will run on old hardware). The higher end Macs tend to be top of the line (in part due to their popularity for use in things like the film industry, although they've largely been superseded by Linux there now).

My point about the i7 was that it seems to be following the same trajectory as the Pentium D or Itanium.

Pretty much, there's no real legit performance gain in terms of gaming over a core 2. And gamings all I'd really care about when it comes to upgrading

Most people get confused when I refer to them as Craps.
