    I would love to hear some games experiences on a macbook... Please dont post games like Doom3/UT/Halo/ etc...

    Maybe Mame, Age of empires, EVE, WoW, WH40k...

    Dont start another "Integrated graphics aren't for games" topic... Im not a gamer, i dont have enough money for a MBP and i just want to play some normal games when i dont have to work and im not at home...

    I heard WoW runs way better on BootCamp... anyone tried this? (maybe screenies)

    The only game I really want to play on my Macbook is Civ IV. I have a 360 for verything else, but you'll never see a Civ like game on consoles.

    I'm interested in this too. I thinking of trading in my G4 powerbook for a MacBook.

    Age of Empires is pretty old so I would expect it would run top-notch. I've heard reports the WoW runs great.

    MAME should be as smooth as silk,;intergrated graphics aren't the best thing in the world, but I would expect them in be able to keep on games designed in the 80s and 90s.

    You're going to want to wait on a universal binary for MAME, judging from my (admittedly short) trial when I first got my iMac.
