    I have a copy of windows, but don't want to install windows for my games unless they'll actually work. I know the macbook's graphics card isn't nearly as good as the macbook pro's one for gaming, but my computer's specs are definitely good enough to play the games. I have in mind Metal Gear solid 2 and Splinter Cell 1-3. Metal Gear solid 2 for the PC is a badly done port of a port, so that really does decrease the chances of it running on a macbook.

    :) So, can a macbook run much commercial games with boot camp?

    I'm not running boot camp, but Unreal Tournament 2004 runs great on my MacBook with all the setting as high as they will go.

    Wow :D thanks! I looked at screenshots for unreal tournament 2004, and the graphics were good! I think I'll try windows on my mac, now.
