Well, what do you want? the PC has windows if so it will be more easyer to install games becuase ALl games support Windows, if you want OSX than yes it plays games but most games wont work unless a emulator, but if you get than it would be sweet.

The processor on the pc, well it kinda sucks..Sempron heh..Compared to duo, to the mac is so much better in specs, but the os is what really matters in the long run. It all depends which one you like more xp, or osx..
