    Or is it bearable?

    I am looking at installing windows just to play games. Are there any issues I should be aware of while playing on windows on a mac? Also how many gigs do you partition for windows? (Beyond the standard minimum.)

    Thanks for any tips/heads-ups!

    I think you'll be fine. If it gets dangerously hot, it will shut down automatically.
    It really depends how much you tax your hardware.

    Let first buyers find out. I bet there will be heating issues with these sandy bridge quad core computers. It's first gen. Enjoy.

    Yeah, I am currently on a 2007 2.2 dcd. And I could play guild wars on windows decently but my fingers would start sweating lol... I eventually ran out of hd space and got rid of windows.

    Or should I just buy a wireless mac keyboard?

    Anyone had any luck with that gaming wise?
