Well, what type of video card do you have in your mac? Running an 8800 GS in my hack runs fine.

It's actually pretty true. WoW is the best example because it's cross-OS. Install it on a Macbook, one install on Windows, the other on OSX. Windows gets, I think, like 15+ FPS gain.

It depends on which mac you have.. MacPro's can run games just fine.. MacBook Pro's can run soem games as well. It's really not that bad. Macbooks on the otherhand don't have very good integrated video card's so don't expect to run much on those..

the fact of the matter is that the Apple computers were never made to play games, they are first and foremost a workstation.
when comparing a high end mac to a high end pc dollar for dollar, the graphics card in a mac is nver going to be as good as the Pc's, as such, they will not play games as well as the pc will.
of course, a pc often has a hard time beating a mac's photoshop time now doesnt it

Its a been proven for quite a while that macs are not the best at games. Most of the games are windows only so unless you boot into windows and use those games osx doesn't really deal well with games from what I have seen. However WoW runs great on the macbook pro so I don't know where the complaint is there.
