So long before I amassed the epic console collection I have now, I had just an NES, and my Mac Performa 450. I spent most of the 90's alternating between them when home. I have MANY fond memories of playing games on my Mac, including Doom, Wolf 3D, Sim City 2000, The Oregon Trail, and countless others I can't even remember right now.
I was thinking of getting a pre OSX Mac Laptop to game on (portable, space, can hook up to big VGA monitor) and wanted to get the opinion of some AA gamers.
I've (almost) settled on a Mac Powerbook G3 "Pismo" model. My reasoning is the following-
-It runs both OS9.2.2 (for 90's gaming) and OSX 10.4.11 (for some modern functionality)
-At 500mhz and 1 gig ram, 80 gb hardrive potential, I could do some modern stuff with it
-Includes CD rom drive, USB ports, and most modern connections needed, like Wifi Capability and ethernet.
-I could hook it up to the monitor I use for my Atari ST and thus one less desktop taking up space (Already have a ST and Apple IIGS in my stable)
Any input or thoughts are much appreciated, thanks in advance!
