Thoughts On Buying MB: Will Left 4 Dead run smoothly?
 
I've been considering buying a Mac Book for a while now, and with Left 4 Dead coming out in 2 weeks gives me another good reason to get a new computer (I have a really old Pentium 3 at my other house and currently using a crappy Dell as I type.) So I hope I don't get flamed for knowing absolutely nothing about Macs below this :[

Unfortunately they aren't releasing Left 4 Dead for Mac but after Googling a bit, I read about Boot Camp which could run Windows for those apps you want to use that aren't compatible. I was thinking about buy the new 13-inch Mac Book with the X3100 or 9400M ($999-$1599). I was wondering if anyone could tell me if Left 4 Dead will run fine on this? Here are the tech specs from the official site:

Minimum:

* Supported OS: Microsoft Windows XP / Vista / Vista64
* Processor: Pentium 4 3.0GHz
* Memory: 1 GB
* Graphics: 128 MB, Shader model 2.0, ATI 9600, NVidia 6600 or better
* Hard Drive: At least 7.5 GB of free space
* Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card

Recommended:

* Supported OS: Microsoft Windows XP / Vista / Vista64
* Processor: Intel core 2 duo 2.4GHz
* Memory: 1 GB
* Graphics: Shader model 3.0, NVidia 7600, ATI X1600 or better


Also wondering if Warhammer and WoW would run fine also. Thanks!
