    My 15" 2010 MBP starts lagging if I have WoW (25 man raid) + iTunes + Skype + Safari running? If I use Firefox instead of Safari, most of the lag is gone though.

    Do I have to buy a new Mac now or should i try to downgrade to snow leopard and see if that helps? ( since Firefox eliminates much of the lag, I think this is a software problem instead of a hardware problem )

    Or perhaps I should just install bootcamp?

    edit: I'm playing WoW in windowed mode so i can multitask during 25 man raids.

    edit2: Never mind, I'm going to install Windows and see if I can multitask better there :)

    You could just close Skype and iTunes if you need a browser open..
