Default Dual Boot

a friend of mine has a production company and wants me to start to get to know Motion. issue is, i'm an avid gamer and from what i know, Macs arent all that gaming friendly.
should i just settle and get a Mac, or buy a PC and dual-boot?

Default Re: Dual Boot

You CAN get a mac and install windows on it via Bootcamp. That works very well, I've done it on my Macbook Pro. Runs everything natively, so you're using the hardware to the max.
You can NOT get a PC and install any of the Mac OS's on it. It is against Apple's Terms of Use agreement

edit: also, do not create more than one thread. If you do, you will receive an infraction and the threads will be closed.
