Macs suck if you are a gamer. There isn't one decent flight sim on mac either. Macs are for media types and facebook junkies. Not for people who want to do proper work or fun games with the power that a PC can deliver.
When I got my first Mac, I found all manner of jobs that were so simple compared to doing them on a Windows machine. Try AppleScript. Or the Automator. Even the search facility is outstanding compared to Windows. As an example, when you receive an email with a pdf attachment, OS X carries out OCR on it in the background, and indexes it for later search. For something a little deeper, compare Windows' "dir" with OS X's "ls". For something much deeper, have a look at the .NET framework, and try and compare it with Cocoa. There is absolutely no comparison. Then think that the programming environments for the iPad and iPhone are also based on Cocoa. A mini OS X on a phone or tablet.
