I gamed on the MacOSX side for a few months (WoW) and my model (specs in sig) handled the game well and I was alright with it but eventually just stopped playing. I want to set up Windows in Boot Camp eventually solely to game but I am worried that doing so will shorten the life of my machine quite considerably. I don't plan on running anything serious like Crysis or anything - I mainly want to play Guild Wars (as I have accepted GW2 is never coming out) and perhaps old but good shooters like CoD2. These games recommend Pentium processors and 1 or less GB of RAM, so obviously I can run them more than well but won't doing so basically run my machine into the ground that much faster? I am quite worried about this and wondering if it is even worth it to do so if it only leaves me with a worn out laptop. Any insight on this matter? Am I just over-exaggerating? Thank you to any replies.
