    Pictures, videos and DVD movies on MacBook are great. But I bought this because of games. My parents have an old computer, so Sims 2 can't be played. But I have tried a lot of games installing on this MacBook. I put the CD in, then I click on the icon it shows all the files- read only files. I press "open" and it doesn't! When I put it in the old computer it shows installing icons automaticlly. is there a special way to install games? How?

    If you want to play Windows games you will have to also install Windows on your Macbook. It can run as a dual boot meaning you switch between OS X and Windows but can't use them both at the same time. If you also install some additional software it is possible to run Windows inside a window on top of Mac OS X but this is not recommended for games as the performance will be far better using the dual boot option. Otherwise you will need the Mac OS X versions of games that you want to play.
