    World of warcraft? charged? or battery power?
    hello guys...
    i am new to mac OS and i would like to ask if we are playing world of warcraft for a period of time e.g 3 hrs is it better to keep the computer charged even at full power or remove the charger and just play it on battery power? because i am only getting around 1.5 hrs even at full charge and i just bought my mac a couple of days ago? is this normal as well?

    thank you

    WOW is pretty CPU and GPU intensive, so I have no doubt that your battery won't last very long. In previous threads, people have always said that you should always leave your MBP plugged in when you can. Good luck!

    I've never personally played WoW, but I've heard there are lots that do and from what I've read, it should run great!

    MBPs are awesome.

    I play it on my MBP.. Handles like a dream.. Im on 2gig of ram though. The battery lasts around 45mins if its fully charged.

    Cuts it to just over a third..

    Ive stopped playing for a while.. Just got to 70 on my Priest, and I need to get some work done !
