    I installed Windows with bootcamp in my Macbook pro 15'.I installed starcraft II
    on both systems.I just found that Windows runs better than Mac os X lion.I can even run it smoothly on high graphic settings on windows(above 30fps).But on mac just 14-20 fps.So Is mac really not suitable for game?

    It is wideley acknowledged that Macs are still not suitable for intensive games. This is mostly because such games are developed for Windows and ported to OS X with the accompanying performance loss associated with porting.
