We’re no strangers to the Mac vs PC wars here at ChurchMag with different writers who have different preferences and tools. I hope that it helps us to give a more balanced view to what technology is the best for churches and individuals to use and how they can steward God’s money and resources that he has allocated us.
One factor where PCs crush Macs, no questions asked, is games. Not only did there use to be a tiny selection of games for the Mac, but they were generally horrifically underpowered. But is that still the case in 2017 with the new Macbook Pros?
YouTuber Austin Evans decided to find out.

There are a few items of note to take here but a couple of things I noticed are that there are more games than I expected for the Mac. Being a Mac owner and using Steam (occasionally) I hadn’t noticed that there were so many options to choose from including a few big name titles. Of course, Windows still has more, but there’s a better chance that your favorites are on OS X now.
You can get game controllers that will work with your MacBook, although you might need to get a dongle to connect it up. #donglelife
The performance seems to be good enough for most basic games. Sure it isn’t breathtaking, but it works. This matches my personal experience with my 2013 MacBook Pro when I use it for the few games I play. Stuff like Kerbal Space Program really gives the fan a workout.
