5% of Steam Users are Macs

The recent Steam hardware survey numbers are in. The monthly hardware survey that Steam collects from its 25 million users gives a detailed insight on what sort of hardware PC gamers are using.

The month of July saw that around 1.25 million of Steam users are running their games via Mac OS. Around 90% of Mac users are running a dual-core setup with about 58% having 4GB of RAM. Even more interesting is that just about half of those 1.25 million Mac users are running them from laptops, specifically Macbook Pros.

Do Mac gamers prefer notebook gaming? Or is it just a college student thing? Or maybe it’s because Mac Pros tend to be $2,500 honking monsters with a Radeon 5770.
