With Macworld Expo San Francisco coming to an end today, IMG has posted a picture gallery as well as a wrap-up of the show.

The wrap-up, authored by IMG's Editor-in-Chief Tuncer Deniz, discusses Apple's new announcements and the games shown at Macworld Expo. Here's a snippet of the article:

The highlight of the show was the Steve Jobs keynote. The Master Blaster was at his best showing off the hot new toy, the all-new iMac. And although the verdict is still out on how well the new iMac will do, game developers we talked to couldn’t say enough about the new iMac. For one, the new iMac has enough horsepower to run most of the games available on the Mac thanks to a speedy G4 processor and an NVIDIA GeForce2 MX graphics chip.

Brian Greenstone of Pangea Software sent me this note shortly after the announcement: “Those new iMac's are actually the first iMacs which are truly game machines. I mean we've had to struggle with the old style iMacs to get games to run well (due to outdated 3D hardware, the G3, insufficient RAM / VRAM, etc.), but these new models should be phenomenal for games. Even the LCD display should help performance because the refresh rate on an LCD is usually around 60 Hz which lets the 3D accelerator run faster.” How’s that for an endorsement?

If you didn't get a chance to attend Macworld Expo, be sure to check out the rest of the article.
