    That's awesome, Mac's rock! Don't get me wrong Windows is cool when I need it, I'll use XP with Parallels when I can't run a program on OS X and its fine, but I definitely use Leopard 98% of the time. I just have too many friends and neighbors that are using Windows 7 or XP and have so many problems with it, I think its just too much...awesome for gaming though.

    but ehh, if that's the only speed difference and thats on a mac, why not try a windows 7 on a pc so? not fair imo and but still its all about personal prefrence especialy with those minute speed diffs cept that top one
    and on one last note i think its funny that it has to say that the smaller bar is better :P

    Lol back on topic, the mac should be better for gaming as mine has nvidia 9400 and 9600GT in it.

    The one big thing that keeps me on the windows side (aside from PC games) is that Apple has this huge proprietary-ness around all their products, and it makes me uncomfortable. It feels like everything from the video cables to third party software have to go through the Apple Store.

    Granted, I'm the type of guy who wants a USB port on everything from his laptop to his toaster, so maybe Macs weren't made for a guy like me.

    Microsoft does have an advantage where gaming is concerned e.g the xbox, xbox360

    how Bias can you be that you thrash windows like that? even I, who owns both a PC (alienware M15x) and macbook pro, have to say that windows 7 is one of the best operating systems microsoft has come up with,althought straight out of the package it DOES go really heavy on resources (yet alot lighter than vista) part of the reason because windows 7 is more like an eye candy and it defenitely does look nice.thats where system tweaks comes in.

    although the macbook does have a certain smoothness that noone can really dislike, my windows 7 runs alot faster especially under multitasking, it all boils down to subjective specifications what you like and what your used to, so if they are really gonna run stats on both OS then they should put them both at top performance, meaning tweaks and taking out all unnessesary start up. btw my windows 7 takes about 26 secs to bootup.

    sorry typo, i meant to write 20secs, but now i official time tested my boot up and it gave me 26.3 secs, and this is with all the extra programs i have staring up in the begging which defenitely adds seconds. Windows XP should be much more impressive though because it is very light on resources and start-up memory

    P.S.
    my laptop is a windows 7 ultimate 64-bit intel 2.8 dual core extreme processor, 4gb ram, 512mb Nvidia Geforce 9800M GT
