    running wow on a black macbook w./1 g ram and amazingly its PERFECTLY FINE ( i have no idea why anyone would say otherwise. its gorgeous). the only thing that happens is the fan runs the entire time i play. will this cause any longterm damage?

    Think of it as running your car at 100 mph all the time. Of course it's going to deteriorate your car more than if you never drove your car more than 30 mph, but cars are made to drive at all speeds.

    Hope that helps. :eek:

    oh man I know. it's already becoming really addictive. it helps that i have some level 60 buddies who look out for me on the server. it's like knowing the captains of the football team. no hassles!

    Dude, totally, your macbook will explode, really not kidding, first it flys away because of the fans going way to hard, and then it will crash down on the ground and make a huge explosion inside your house (note that the macbook must be inside your house for this example) then, your house will explode and you will fly in the air, come in heaven and play wow for the rest of ur life (which is 0 cuz ur dead)

    totally!

    I'm on my fourth macbook due to WoW.

    ...

    Just kidding! :D :D

    Not really. But you start to hear really weird sounds, it might be time to take a break. What are your settings?

    all the settings are fairly low, but they still look great. even in busy towns the slowdown is minimum. the whole No WoW on an MB is clearly a rumor

    Well that is certainly good to know.

    Now I just hope when I install windows on my MB I can run GOTY version of Unreal tournament, I have an itch for some old school FPS'ing...

    Wait, does 6 years old count as old school yet? XD

    Do they have epic gear? Tier 4? Or are they mere "level 60's"?
