    New MacBook Pro
    Hey guys, just got new 15 inch MacBook Pro for Xmas, and just had some questions regarding it:

    Can bootcamp damage the macbook at all, or make it run slower when in normal OS X mode?

    How do I get my music from my desktop iMac to the macbook?

    Is it bad to leave the charger in when the green light is already on and it is fully charged? Will it drain the battery?

    I'm getting the 2.4GHz i5 320gb one, how well can this run games in high graphics mode, like will World of Warcraft and Counter Strike Source run fast and smoothly at the highest or close to highest graphics?

    Thanks in advance for any replies

    The machine will run fast whether you are using bootcamp or not.

    You can move the music over using the migration assistant. It will give you the option to speciftpy which folders you want to move.

    The machine is plenty fast to run wow.

    You have an awesome machine-enjoy!!

    This is not factual.

    My uptime ATM is 37days . . . . . Has been on longer when waiting for the 10.6.4 - 10.6.5 System Update. It never once look tired or looked like it needed a rest

    Dont forget to use the Reputation System if someone has helped you out !!!
