    coming from my windows machine, I think the biggest thing I miss is being able to alt+tab out of warcraft 3 while I'm playing it and go right into the program I was using before, switching back and forth. Is there any way to do this on my MBP, or am I going to have to get used to putting it in window mode, then moving my mouse across the game screen, throwing me across the map while I try to do other things

    This is what I do.

    You have to, unfortunately, go into window mode every time you want to use another application while in game. But after I go into windowed mode, i just simply +Tab to the application I would like to use. Mind you, it needs to be open for this to work.

    I like to use iTunes while playing, and I have found that if I open iTunes first, then start playing, I can use the apple remote to change songs. Very nice

    Hope this helps

    bah, that's what I was afraid of, guess I'll just have to get used to that. It's just such an instinct to go right to alt+Tab
