The Macintosh, or Mac, is a line of personal computers designed, developed, manufactured, and marketed by Apple. Named after the McIntosh variety of apple, the original Macintosh was released on January 24, 1984. It was one of the first commercially successful personal computers to use a graphical user interface (GUI) and mouse instead of the then-standard command line interface.

The following reason for adding it to the list has been given: This article is probably outdated as it has been written in 2007. Also, some Mac user should probably check the compatibility of the games. Further reasons might be found on the "discussion page".

The current range of Macintoshes varies from Apple's entry level Mac mini desktop, to a mid-range server, the Xserve. Macintosh systems are mainly targeted at the home, education, and creative professional markets. Production of the Macintosh is based upon a vertical integration model in that Apple facilitates all aspects of its hardware and creates its own operating system that is pre-installed on all Macintoshes. This is in contrast to PCspre-installed with Microsoft Windows, where one vendor provides the operating system and multiple vendors create the hardware. (In both cases, the hardware can run other operating systems; modern Macintoshes, like PC's, are capable of running operating systems such as Linux, FreeBSD and Windows.)

Tomb Raider Games For Mac

When trying to play Tomb Raider on Macs one has to keep in mind that these games were ported to the then current systems. As Apple changed the system architecture three times so far - first 68000 based CPUs, then PowerPC, finally Intel - there are several compatibility issues. While there was some compatibility during the transition periods, it gets increasingly difficult to run older games.
