    I play on a Mac.

    And damn the graphics look good.. except the game crashes (OpenGL bug?)when I hit the water and switch quickly from above water view to underwater view.

    I play on both....

    My daughter and I both have a multitiude of characters on Thunderhorn. At home I play on and HP Athalon System (3400 + Radeon 9800 PR0 +1GB Ram and 19in HP LCD Monitor), but when I go to her house I play on my Powerbook, (1.5G4+128MB Radeon 9700 Mobility+5200 RPM HD 80 GB +15.1 inch monitor)
    Both play fine as I am broadband at both places. In game I have run into many mac users so there DOES seem to be a bunch of us out there. The system at home was put together exclusively for gaming, and being a die-hard, since 1986, Mac User the following is hard to admit. The PC leaves the mac in the dust in just about every significant category. Granted it's not a fair comparison with one being a laptop, but everything seems smoother on the PC. Don't get me wrong, after the obligatory video adjustments, the powerbook is highly playable and if I did not have the PC as a basis for comparison, I would never notice that "anything" was different. But on a 19 inch LCD with all the video options maxed the game goes from "gorgeous" to "stunning". I actually wish I could see it played on a good Dual G5 with a decent video card for comparison, but with the above mentioned equipment you can probably imagine that my computer budget is probably done for the next year or so. The really cool thing about the mac though? I have a Sony Ericsonn T610 cell phone w/bluetooth and T-Mobile Internet service. I am actually able to hook up with the powerbook from virtually anywhere for a 'playable' WOW experience. A Little laggy, somewhat unresponsive at times, and I would hate to take it to a raid (Suicide), but completely playable for most aspects of the game. Addict? Yeah. But there ARE worse addictions. LOL

    Love playing WoW, wish I had a little more horsepower on my powerbook when compared to a hardcore gaming desktop, but when I'm on the road, the PB does fine - had a few UI issues, but overall wonderful experience.
    Have level 60 Pally, 55 Warrior, 20 Mage, 16 Hunter, 9 Priest, and some others on PvP servers (I'm mostly a PvE guy).

    We have a guild of mostly Mac players. About 250 characters in the guild, probably 50-75 real people, most of whom are Mac users (many of us came over together from a Mac-only game). Probably about 30 characters are level 60 now...and I'm getting close. :)

    with the Tequila!
    I have a lvl 60 Elf Druid, lvl 22 Undead Mage and a lvl 19 human warlock all on Surimar.

    SideNote: Anyone had problems with the game crashing for seemingly no reason, Normally it will crash, if its going to, right after the char selection screen and it has just finished loading the world, but not actually shown the area where my char is. I can usually fix it by either open/closing the dvd player or itunes. The other times I have seen it crash is right after a big battle, either pvp or npc.

    I have a 58 Gnome Mage on Stonemaul. I don't get to play as often as I would like (I've had the game since opening day). I played a Tauren Shaman to 20, but didn't like the horde.

    I play WoW on a Mac, and so does one of my friends. I have a lvl 15 Undead Warrior, a lvl 14 Undead Warlock, and now a lvl 8 Mage...just trying to see which I like best :D

    I play on Arthas. A lot of people complain of lag, but I've never had a problem.

    I used to play, but got bored after 5 months, plus I had a lot of work to do. Once my workload drops off a bit, I might resubscribe and start a new char.

    Your original character will probably still be there too :)
