    Just for fun I decided to install boot camp 1.3 beta on my Macbook pro Rev B. and try WOW. Holy crap did Apple change the drivers or something cause it ran awesome. With everything max (all sliders to high, Multisampling 24bit x4, AA slider maxed, etc) except for Distance (in the middle), I was scoring between 40 - 60 FPS in the outlands. Last time I tried WOW on the macbook with boot camp it was 1.2beta, and the performance wasn't that great.

    Anyhow, just thought I would mention my experience. I can't imagine the new SR with the Nvidia in bootcamp. :eek:

    Just out of curiousity, which card do you have in that MBP? Is it the 128 or 256 radeon?

    I have the 256mb. And I like to add before it comes up, no this card isn't overclocked.

    thats awesome, i gotta find a copy of Windows i can put on my MBP. The OSX performance isn't very impressive given the hardware.

    Yep I had the same response when I installed Vista Home Premium on my MBP. It certainly runs well, better than XP anyway.
