    hi guys.

    just joined the forum, im waiting to get my macbook at the upcoming IT fair.
    but have some issues and doubts that i need to clear.

    yes i know that macbook does support games. im not a heavy gamer,but do play games at times.

    games like Age of Empire 3,fifa 08,cs. can SRmacbook support them? with the black macbook specs.

    thank you so much guys=)

    No, you dont have to run all games in Windows. Some games have Mac OS X version.

    Dont know about tempretures of SR MacBooks, but my rev. B MacBook isnt cold but definitely acceptable on my lap at maximum load (CPU temp is about 80C)
