    I'm thinking of getting a MacBook Pro.

    I'm getting very excited to have one but in all my reading so far there isn't any information on Macs and online gaming. NWN is something i like to play in my spare time.

    Are there any "Macgamers" out there?
    Will the MBP be a good choice for me and my gaming addiction?

    Any thoughts or comments will be very appreciated, Thank you.

    I only play dota and the occasional warcraft 3 game, but my macbook runs it fine. Granted, wc3 isn't exactly next Gen

    yep, you will not be disappointed. I switched after 10.2 came out and haven't thought once about going back.

    You'll love Macs. My brother's gf just got her first one, a black Macbook and she's loving it. I did install XP in a 10Gb partition incase she needs it.

    Another friend of mine just got his black Macbook this week. He's a DJ and uses Serato. I don't know what he was doing or if it was music he was downloading, but his PC notebook was always getting infected. Talk about playing at a club, and your shit freezes. I think most of my DJ friends are now running on Macbooks.

    I never really understood gaming on a PC, much less on a notebook, but that's a different subject for another topic.

    You all have bolstered my confidence about getting a MacBook Pro and I look forward to giving my "report" once i have it and become comfortable with it

    Thanks again for all the comments.

    I've been itching to play some multiplayer games lately. Any recommendations that are available for Mac?

    I really wish Half-Life 2 was available. I've been wanting to play it for a while and I'm just too lazy to install it on my PC. I'd rather play it on my PowerBook.

    I noticed the mixer in your AV, are you a DJ?

    best place to look for your answer is here.

    insidemacgames.com

    but I'm sure that the game will run well on the macbook pro
