    Hello, i'm new to the forums and looking to buy my first MacBook Pro tomorrow (15-inch: 2.8GHz) and had a couple of questions if any of you all could give me your advice. Pretty much the only game I currently play at the moment is WoW and i'm sure that the MBP will be able to run the game flawlessly. My main concern is how will the MBP be able to run boot camp and windows games. Primarily the only game I will be playing on Windows is the new KoToR mmo that will be coming out in the future so I won't be putting a heavy load on that. I would really appreciate if you all could give me a little insight as to if buying the MBP is going to be a good choice for me or is getting a PC laptop potentially better for what i'm looking at. Price isn't really an issue for me under 2500 and I love macs (currently have a Mac Pro). I'm just concerned the laptop may not be able to handle what I would like it to. Thanks in advance for your help!!

    PS: A MacBook Pro (or any other Mac) will run Windows via Boot Camp natively, thus giving you full speed.


    Also have a look at the following links, as the information presented there might be helpful in your future endeavours into Mac OS X and could clear up initial confusion and may even prevent harm to your system or your files.

    My MBP plays games very well (in boot camp, and that is really easy to set up if you just follow the Apple instructions), and even if they don't play well on full def, then they will probably work on a lower res/lower settings. However if you just want an MBP to play games I suggest you look at another laptop that may serve your needs better.
