    Warcraft III Battlechest is what you want. It includes the original, Reign of Chaos, and its excellent expansion, the Frozen Throne.

    You might as well buy it as a digital copy from Blizzard. That way you can get it on the spot, and you have a digital copy. There also was an update to Warcraft 3 which no longer requires the CD.

    Its the same price new on the blizzard store and Amazon, $39.99. I'd vote to go with the digital copy.

    Great game, I still love it and I bought the collectors edition of Reign of Chaos forever ago, and then the frozen throne.

    EDIT: Sorry, the battlechest I believe is NOT a digital download. But I think it works out to the same price if you buy both Reign of Chaos and The Frozen Throne as digital downloads. Both RoC and TFT are $19.99.

    A #1: Yes, Blizzard has an online store where you can buy both the physical CD of their games, and also a select few as digital downloads. In your case you would be interested in the digital download of both RoC and TFT

    A #2: They sell both the CD version of Warcraft 3 and a digital version.

    A #3: You are comparing two different games. Real time strategy (RTS) to a Role playing game (RPG), so I dont think it is a fair comparison between Warcraft 3 and Neverwinter Nights 2. But, the graphics on Neverwinter Night 2 compared to Warcraft 3, are much better. Warcraft 3 is rather old though, and Neverwinter Nights 2 is fairly new.

    A #4: Your MacBook Pro (is it the ATI version?) will run Warcraft 3 perfectly. I can almost say for certain that it will run Neverwinter Nights but I dont know the exact System Requirements for it.

    A #5: Amazon is a pretty good place to buy games, but the MacGameStore is pretty good to, and you get the digital downloads with blizzard. Actually, the MacGameStore offers the Warcraft 3 battle chest $10 cheaper than Amazon.

    Hope this helps

    Just so you know, with a retail copy you can download the digital version anytime so might as well go with the retail and then keep the digital version for the future.

    The Warcraft 3 boxart is pretty cool :p
