    So I'm going to be dropping some cash for a new pc soon. I was debating between a macbook (i'd upgrade to 2gigs and maybe a 120gb hdd) or a desktop (19 in LCD monitor, 8800gt, quad core)... I like the macbook because it's very portable and I've always liked Apple products. I like the desktop idea though because mine is horrible and I think it's time for an upgrade. I was gonna drop around 1500 either way.

    Oh, and just a quick question. Would a macbook with 2gigs of ram run WOW and WOW: Burning Crusade fine? I don't play right now but I might get into it to see what it's like. If I don't like it then w/e.

    Another question: Are new macbooks coming out soon? I heard macbook pro's will be released soon with new processors but I'm not dropping 2800ish for a pc.

    Well, I'd like to have a laptop for whenever I travel. It's not a big factor but it'd be nice. At the same time, my desktop is so shitty and my original plan was to just build a new one but then I thought about a macbook.

    Oh, and would I be able to put vista on it? A friend of mine put vista on his macbook pro but I wasn't sure if I could on a macbook.

    Well you wont get a skewed opinion in this forum.....


    A macbook + Desktop ftw. (Instead of MBP).

    As for running WoW, the macbook will not run it well. Another reason for the desktop ftw.
