    I want to play StarCraft II but I don't know how it will run better on my computer: natively on Lion or through Parallels on Windows XP. I have an 8GB MBP 13" mid 2009.

    Thanks for your reply. And how do you expect the performance to be when I play through Lion on my computer specifically? It has a 9400m.

    Native used to suck for me but they released a patch and it's been fine since, so I guess they addressed a mac issue.

    I was downloading the "Arcade 1.5 Beta" but for some reason, even if the game itself doesn't spike my processor, Blizzard's downloader always does. Why? I don't see a need for my laptop's fans to cause a tornado in my house while Blizzard downloads a patch...
