    I'm just wondering if I could playing games like WoW in windows or in OS X. I have a 1.83GHz MacBook with 2GB of RAM & the GMA 950. Would I get higher FPS in Windows?

    It would operate the same regardless of the OS. It would just be more convenient to run in OS X.

    Depends on the game, obviously. I don't believe WoW runs faster on either platform. Some games like Halo, the speed difference is dramatic. Just a matter of asking opinions.

    Yeah WOW is just fine as an OSX app and even has itunes controls for those whom are inclined to have music running during their games.

    Osx

    If you have the option of both platforms, you should always choose OSX. The reason being that it supports games being published on the mac platform. The more OSX games we buy, the more of a chance they make games for OSX, and the happier us mac gamers will be.

    I play rarely games but if I want to play I use parallels. It has a big list... I know a lot of people who play trough Bootcamp, but for me parallels is enough!
