Depending on game, it might make more sense to get the Intel system -
but if you want a workstation, I suggest the Apple.
Truthfully, the same games as are avaiable for Windows are typically
available for OS X, though most not immediately. So if an occasional
game is what you're after, but you still want a spiffy box that does
what you *tell* it to do, go for the Apple.
Each has their strong points and weak points, but the Apple's strong
points are for more numerous and carry more weight.
