I HAD a MacBook with WoW. It doesn't run it well. It runs very poorly. I'd recommend the Pro if you aren't interested in getting a different Laptop.

your gonna get a macbook, because of your PC's BOOT TIME???

seriously, the boot time for windows is 2min, tops. use the extra money you save from NOT buying another comp, and upgrade your desktop.

bytheway, macs suck for gaming. if you are absolutely **** bent on getting a book, do NOT get a mac. get a dell lappy, you will not regret it.

I sadly have to agree. If you want slideshows in any major town or anywhere for that matter, get a MacBook. If you want to actually enjoy your games, get an Inspiron, seriously.

Just a quick tip for those who play on Macs: Macs support dual monitors–you don’t need an extra video card or anything like you do on most Windows machines

My friends younger bro just got a new Macbook and I saw him playing WoW yesterday. I asked him what settings he was playing on because it was so smooth and he said all maximum. I've seen people run HL2 on a Macbook on Youtube, I'm pretty sure WoW should run very smoothly w/o a prob.

Ya, I have seen some of those Youtube videos as well. I'm wondering if maybe the C2D in the current-gen MacBooks is helping them out more, and the old Core Duo MB's were lagging? Or maybe its a newer driver revision?

In any case, I'm going to try out WoW on my dads Latitude this weekend (it has slightly lower specs then the MacBook) and see how it runs. If it runs halfway decently, I know the MacBook will do a good job
