    I've just got a shiny new alu macbook (2.4/4gb/250gb) and it hasnt failed to impress, but i havent had a chance to see what the nvidia 9400M works, so i have a couple of questions to ask about a bit of gaming:

    * Should I use mac ports of PC games (eg COD4), or should i use bootcamp and run the windows versions (if so, XP or Vista?)

    * What do i need in a mouse? (im currently in favour of the Logitech VX Nano/Revolution mice, but i would like to know if going for a larger wired one is a must)

    *Is there anything else i need for the macbook in terms on addons

    I'm going to be playing games like COD4, Quake4, Spore, etc. (nothing too intense but would like to have a decent experience out of it)

    thanks,

    Greg

    well if your going to be using it for gaming i would recomend installing windows on it because all new game that come out are not mac compatible to you could just buy the pc version and play it instead of waiting for a release for the mac
