I have a brand new macbook pro.

To have some fun, I went out and bought Starcraft (The 1998 game) for it. The game works fine. The system requirements are a joke. However, I can't play it without it making my entire computer crash. It's usually only like 20 to 40 mins before it does. I don't know why. When I bought the computer in the first like two days I had a few programs freeze, but, not since. I have no problems with it at all accept for this. I don't know why it would be making the computer crash.

Any ideas?

Starcraft issue - MacRumors Forums

Looks like 10.5.3 breaks starcraft and Blizzard has no way to fix it. Not sure about newer versions of OS X.
