i think if you want to play only casual games and design is more important for you, then mac is better

Can run CS GO and TF2 at reasonable frame rates buy don't expect anything crazy awsome to happen. Also make sure your mac can handle the game by looking at the specs first, thats why there there, so you don't end up buying a game for $30 and find out you only run at 3-4 frames a second. Mac gamers unite!

No its not very good it crashes every time and to me Valve deleted about 10 games from me that i didnt

I play StarCraft and Diablo 3 and the games are great on mac (stability etc...). On CS GO i can play with 200 fps but it crashes a lot. Maybe i have to get Windows 7 on bootcamp if Valve doesn't fix mac bugs. i found CS 1.6 also a little buggy i think the best one now is CSS.

Yes it is but it doesn't have so much games like Windows.

Yup they can be good. I have a mid 2009 15" 2.8ghz Macbook Pro and can run many games (TF2, Borderlands 2, Half-life 2, Doom3, Bioshock, Prey, Counterstrike:Global Offensive, CoD4m Battlefield 2142, Portal2, GTA: San Andreas, GMod, The Witcher, q.u.b.e, Sanctum, Serious Sam 3, Left 4 Dead 1 and 2, Civilization IV, Quake 4, Command and Conquer Red Alert 3, Spore + many more) I haven't had any serious performance issues and I have managed to get several non-native games to play perfectly using wrappers created in Wineskin Winery. (mainly Dawn of War - including Winter Assault, Soulstorm, Dark Crusade and Oblivion GOTY)
Wineskin wrappers can be really handy - I use them all the time for any software which is Windows only, although setting them up can be a bit of a pain, but once they are set up they run fine.

I have a Pro with alot of music and movies on it, TF2 gives me a hard time when i run it but if you have a bigger HD or not so much crap like me it should work just fine. I just dont get why people dont make games for it.

Depends. It's okay, but there are heaps more games for PC then there are Mac, but graphics and how much stuff you can run will stay the same as long as you get a recent model.

Depends on your mac , but steam isnt realy optimized for mac but its not that bad , theres just not alot of games on mac or any mods
