Thread: MacBook and Rosetta
02-14-2006, 08:28 PM #1HabitualmusicGuestMacBook and Rosetta
Im switching from pc to mac and I gotta say i cant wait Ive done alot of research and Im still kind of confused on this rosetta business. So everything thats set up for MAC OS X Tiger will run on the intel macs Via rosetta correct....i.e. adobe illustrator cubase War craft 3? are there going to be problems when programs are running through rosetta? and finally can I mess up my new powerbook by trying to install programs that are not universal but will run through rosetta?
any help would be great

As for games, they rely far more on the GPU than anything else nowadays, and the X1600 completely destroys what's inside the PowerBooks, and almost every laptop out there now for that matter. Furthermore, Warcraft 3 isn't exactly very intensive (the fact it can be run at full specs on my laptop with no slowdown is proof enough of that). And the newer games that come out will be universal or have patches to make them that way. In fact, WoW is already native and it sings on Intel macs. And no, Rosetta will NOT mess up your MacBook Pro.
